The second round of the Town Lodge Business Night Relay returns to the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Tuesday evening and as in previous year’s, the team to watch at this year’s Series are the youngsters representing Gamble Pharmacy.
The Gamble team were comfortable winners in Round 1 at the end of May winning in a time of 1 hour and 1 minute over the total 17.5km course distance. Second on the evening was the Men’s team from the SPAR DC with Team Bos in 3rd place. In the Ladies team event, the Investec Ladies continued their domination from last year with another fine win in 1 hour 18 minutes ahead of SPAR DC Ladies and the teachers and staff from Woodridge College.
The event is open to running teams of 5 persons, each completing a 3.5km lap within the stadium precinct making this event unique in South Africa. A walking category is also included for teams of 3 walkers with the team representing Concord Cranes Group winning round 1 in a time of 1hr 14min with ETA College in 2nd place and the Gibson family team comprising of mom, dad and son in 3rd place.
Such has been the response for this year’s Series from companies and clubs that there are now fewer than 25 team entry slots remaining for Tuesday evening so teams are urged to secure their team entry by registering online through the Zsports Events NPC website – www.zsports.co.za – as soon as possible. Online entries will close on Monday evening.
