Here's a quick guide for your South African athletes out there if you ever decide you want to race for your province and country...
I race for Bedfordview Athletics, a local running club in Johannesburg. It is predominantly Comrades Marathon focused with a proclivity towards triathlon. In early February, I raced in team colours (Oxford and Cambridge blue kit below) and opted for the more gentlemanly distance of the Central Gauteng Olympic distance triathlon qualifier at Germiston lake. Proof of payment as a CGT member and managing a second age group place at the race, secured my slot for SA Champs held at East London on 17th March.
Central Gauteng triathletes were well represented at the coastal race. The top eight from each age group qualify for the South African team taking part in the International Age Group World Championships to be held on 14th September in London, England.
On y va,
