FROM VALENCIA TO PORT ELIZABETH, GREAT RUNNING ALL ROUND!
November 21, 2017  

The past weekend belonged to South African athlete and Green Dream Team member Gerda Steyn who stormed to a PB finish at the Valencia Marathon in Spain.

Gerda finished 12th overall in 2:37:22 to better her PB by more than 14 minutes. What a run!

On home soil several Nedbank Running Club (NRC) athletes made the club proud by performing as only the Green Dream Team can. One such a great performance was that of Ntombesintu Mfunzi, who clocked 56:32 in the Vukani MS 15km in Port Elizabeth, the year’s third fastest time on a standard course.

Another excellent performance in the same race came from Margie Saunders (64), who not only claimed top honours in her age category (Grandmasters), but also finished in the top five women overall.

Great running all around!
