Get ready for 9th half marathon

With only a few days to go until the Langebaan Half Marathon there is still time to enter.

The event, which starts and finishes at Club Mykonos in Langebaan on Saturday 25 August, from 08:00, also marks the 10th anniversary of the ArcelorMittal Saldanha Athletics Club, which organises it.

It is presented in conjunction with Club Mykonos.

This, the ninth half marathon, caters for 21 km and 10 km runners, which both start at 08:00, while the fun run starts at 08:10. Entry fees are R90 for the 21 km, R50 for the 10 km and R30 to participate in the fun run.

If you are not a member of a running club, you will have to purchase a temporary licence number at an additional cost of R55 for the 21 km and R35 for the 10 km. There is no licence necessary for the 5 km fun run.

The first 550 athletes to complete the half marathon will receive a medal, whereas the first 450 in the 10 km and the first 400 in the fun run will receive medals.

Bossie Boshoff, chairperson of ArcelorMittal Saldanha Athletics Club, says he is looking forward to a fun and safe half marathon.

“Our vision is to make this event the number one half marathon in the West Coast,” he said.

Participants and tourists can also look forward to experiencing and enjoying the beautiful scenery and hospitality the West Coast has to offer, as the event will take place during the height of the flower season.

Prize money for the winners of the 21 km and 10 km races are valued at around R46 000.

There will also be many spot prizes, lucky draws with a weekend for four people, which includes a boat cruise and vouchers for wet bike, spa and quad biking as the main prize. For those coming to support the runners there will also be food stalls and a children’s entertainment area. Social walkers are welcome and registration opens at 06:30. Online entries can be done via www.entrytime.com or at the venue on the day of the race between 06:30 and 07:50. For more information contact Bossie Boshoff at 083 462 4400, or Marizelle van Heerden at 083 407 7625.

. Motorists please note: runners will be crossing the road between Curro Private School and the Long Acres entrance from 08:00 to 11:00. Please make use of alternative routes during this time.
