A year later, the KZN-based franchise is celebrating an end to one of their better seasons in recent years. Under the tutelage of Grant Morgan and the captaincy of Khaya Zondo, they reached the final of the Ram Slam T20 and eventually lost to the Multiply Titans.
The 52 Villagers runners faced challenges in the intense heat and the hills but the seasoned athletes powered through the event, which now boosts their confidence to take on the upcoming Ultra Comrades Marathon.
Project manager and acting deputy principal, Mrs ER Narain, thanked the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund for the donation of R100, 000 towards the building of the court.
David Mzobe completed the marathon in an excellent time of 3: 23 while Perumal Pillay completed his Comrades qualifier in 4: 55.
Well done to the winners!
Coming out in their numbers, athletes certainly had fun at the annual marathon, which promotes social cohesion and unity.
The respective winners of the 10km and 21km have arrived at the stadium while the winners of the grueling 52km are yet to arrive.
The races are officially underway and participants have already dubbed the marathon a resounding success.
Thousands are participating in this annual event hosted by the Rising Sun Chatsworth Athletic Club. The 52km and 21km have commenced first.
There is a sense of excitement in the air as residents await for the respective races to commence.
We’re all set for the Rising Sun Chatsworth Freedom and look forward to seeing you!
