The Sun to Sun half marathon race was presented by the Nedbank Fast Legs Running Club.

Runners competing in the half marathon event begin the scenic route at 08h00 at the Black Mountain Hotel and finish at Mbabana Stadium in Thaba’Nchu.

This race was introduced three years ago and it has shown tremendous growth since then.

It attracts top athletes from around the province and neighboring Lesotho.

The race programme included a 10km and 21.1km road race between the Thaba’Nchu Sun and the Naledi Sun.

This year the Clocolan Team took part in the marathon and showcased the WOF firefighters’ physical abilities.

These participants were in the lead group right up to the finish line,with three runners managing a top 10 finish in the 10km race for males.

Ratseki Manuel ended the race in fifth place, Bongani Tigedi secured seventh place and Mongale Thuso ended in eighth place.

Lerato Chaotsane came even closer to victory, ending the ladies’ 10km race in second place.
