Saturday was an extremely good day for Cape Multisport Eden. We were the third most representative club at the Madiba Half Marathon that was held in George. Only Nedbank and Outeniqua Harriers clipped us to this accolade! A total of 24 members of the Red Army joined the hundreds of runners for the race.
The weather played with and it was a very nice day for running. Ricardo Cornelius showed dominant form in the half marathon and finished in a fantastic time of 1:16:57, truly great running from this youngster. Ricardo came 8th overall and was the 2nd Junior home Watch out for him in the future.
