First Full Moon Run great success!

First Full Moon Run great success!

The first Full Moon Beach Run & Walk, held on Monday 5 January 2015 from the Cape St Francis Resort, saw 250 plus runners and walkers enjoy a beautiful evening on the beach in this free and fun event. Every full moon of the year, no matter the day of the week, a Full Moon Beach Run & Walk will be held at 19h30 (registration starts at 19h00).  Runners who anticipate to run every month will be able to apply for a permanent number. Participants will need a headlamp from February.  The route will be better marked with glow-in-the-dark arrows, and there will be a marshal on the beach to make sure everyone runs the full 5km. The event is organised by St Francis Sport, and hosted by the Cape St Francis Resort.  The next run is Wednesday 4 February. Here are the available results.  As St Francis Sport did not expect the huge amount of participants, unfortunately the results are not complete (late runners were allowed to start without a number and some didn’t report to the finish table).

Great results for Enid Pretorius Properties Run & Walk

Great results for Enid Pretorius Properties Run & Walk

Stunning weather on Saturday 9 August, when the fifth annual Enid Pretorius Properties Women’s Day Trail Run and Walk took place, resulted in great times for the runners and a pleasant time in the outdoors for walkers of all ages. This year 24 runners and walkers finished the main distance of 26km which started at the St Francis Golf Course. Wilson Bennett from Jeffreys Bay won in a time of 2h7min with the first lady, Sally Waterworth, right behind him in 2h10min. The second male was Deon Pienaar (2h28min) and third home was Chris Arderne in 2h30min. The second lady was Pat Thompson in 2h35, followed by Shelley Donaldson in 2h59min.  Well done to all of them. The 21km runners started 5 minutes later at the service gate of the St Francis Links. Mkhululi Manyala from Humansdorp won in 1 hour 56min and second male was Pieter de Wet (2h44). The first lady home was local runner Zoe Henn in 2h15, followed by Christelle Blume in 2h50 and third was San-Marie Botha in 2h55. This year runners and walkers for the 15km distance was dropped off on the Mostertshoek road so all participants could finish together at the Village Centre. A total of 98 people of all ages enjoyed this distance, which was won by St Francis Bay’s Rochard Groenewald in 1h37. Right behind him was his friend Dale Visage in 1h38. First for the ladies was junior Coral Holden in 2h02, and second for the junior girls was Alexandra Lombaard. The first Open Lady was Lize-Marie Marais (2h04), second was Anja Myburgh (2h07) and third was another local runner, Caroline Anderson (2h21). The oldest participant, Rita Spies, won a boat based whale watching cruise from St Francis Safaris and the youngest, Keano Dukai (7) won a Woodlands Hamper and USN Shirt.  The last person finished in 4 hours and each participant received Bos Sport Ice Tea and a bottle of Tsitsikamma Water. The decision to split the three distances this year worked well as all participants had the opportunity to enjoyed the beauty of the Wild Side, the section around the Seal Point lighthouse and the Two Harbour Walk. A big thank you to those who manned the water stations – Luan Cloete and Peet Kemp at Mostertshoek, Tich Robb at the lighthouse and Juliet Perie at the Sunshine Lounge on Squid Square, Port St Francis. Also thank you to the landowners who allow this run each year – St Francis Golf Course, St Francis Links, Derick Cook, Eskom, Mostertshoek Home Owners, Jan Riegard, FOSTER, Port St Francis and the St Francis Kromme Trust.  Thank you for making this possible. Thank you to Enid Pretorius Properties for...

St Francis joins global parkrun family!

St Francis joins global parkrun family!

Parkrun in St Francis kicked off with a bang – not only was St Francis parkrun on top of the list for the most new registrations world wide, we also broke the record for the most participants at an inaugural run with 226 runners and walkers – 91 more than the previous record.  The inaugural run was held on Saturday 13 July at the St Francis Links, the venue for this weekly, free, timed 5km run or walk with a starting time of 08:00.  The route follows paved roads through the Estate, and is one of only two wheel chair friendly parkruns in the country. Parkrun participants are from all walks of life, ages, race, gender and ability.  Once a participant have registered on www.parkrun.co.za, they can use their barcode to enter any parkrun around the globe. Event Directors Eric and Esti Stewart were extremely pleased with the support at the launch, and hope that the St Francis parkrun will grow into one of the biggest parkruns in South Africa.  “Thank you very much to each and every one who realized that parkrun is a great opportunity to test your fitness levels in the outdoors.  Let’s see who can improve on their times and get a PB on the score sheet next week!” said Eric.  Best performances for each category are published weekly on the website, and all participants receive a personalised email after the event with their personal statistics.  Discovery members earns 500 Vitality points for each parkrun they finish. The winner of the inaugural event was Kobus Joubert from the Kouga Multisport Club (18:01), second Rochard Groenewald from the Saints Sport School in St Francis, and third Mkhululi Manyala from Humansdorp.  The first lady was Lindi Meyer from the JBay Athletics Club (21:21), second Anri Welters and third Suretha Verwey.  The full results, including age group record holders, is published weekly on parkrun. “A big thank you to Jeff and Liezl Clause from the St Francis Links, as well as Roland Peacock, Marie Louw, Nicol Stewart, Sian Hamilton-Brown, Mickey Freund, Gary O’Shea and Mike Stark, our first volunteers.  We also spend two days with Bob, Pat and Sammy Norris as well as Bruce and Gill Fordyce, who came from Johannesburg to make sure everything is in place for the launch.” Runners and walkers who finish 50 parkruns will receive a special t-shirt, but juniors will receive theirs after only 10.  Bruce visited the St Francis College and said to them “some of you might run the Comrades one day, and will think back to today.  I can remember very well when I heard of the Comrades for the first time.”  Bruce explained to the learners why it is so hard to be a runner.  “We don’t have substitutes, we don’t have half time, we...
