NRC COMES OUT TOPS COUNTRYWIDE
September 26, 2018  

While the Nedbank Running Club’s (NRC) Green Dream Team demolished the strong international and local field at the Cape Town Marathon and FNB Joburg 10K CITYRUN over the weekend, their NRC team mates too meant business by placing high up at most other local races countrywide.

It was especially the NRC’s runners from George who made sure there were no podium spaces left for any other runners at the Run with the Starts 10km race held in George. The men and ladies from the NRC achieved 20 podium positions at this race. All top three positions in the open category in both the men’s and women’s race belonged to the NRC, while the podiums were filled with age groupers from the NRC.

The NRC was also well represented in Brits where Kenyan NRC runner Kipkoech Chirchir won the men’s 25km Kromberg & Schubert race in 89:42. His teammate and fellow countryman Moses Njuguna placed 2nd in the Open category and first Veteran (50:44).

Onwards and upwards!
