According to organiser, Esti  Stewart, the route was changed on Wedensday after an inspection revealed a 15m mud pool on the Mostertshoek Road. The original route would have gone all the way to from Enid’s office, Shark Point, Cape St Francis Lighthouse, Mostertshoek, up to the Links, through the St Francis Golf course and back.

“On Thursday morning, after the 12 hour rain we had, we had to cut the walk into Mostertshoek short, resulting in a 20km walk (not the original 26).  People also had the option to stop at the lighthouse, and 25 opted to do that.”

A total of 106 people participated in the event, of which 30 were runners, most from out of town.  A group of 4 even flew down from Johannesburg for the event and stayed over at their newly built house on the St Francis Links golf estate. Others stayed at guest houses.

Enid added lots of value to participants’ stay with goodiy bags and lucky draws.

“Thanks are due to all the sponsors that made this successful event possible,” Esti adds..
