How I Trained For And Ran A Sub-60 10K

Around 9km, Zurika and Ditiro had pushed ahead so I had a target to chase. Gape remained by my side with the tough job of making sure I kept up.

I started running in 2017 by challenging myself to 17 races that year. This year I’ve returned to how it had all began with a #20in20 Race Challenge.

How To Conquer Your Hard At Soweto

Regular readers will know that Soweto, aptly coined ‘The People’s Race’ in Johannesburg is one of my favourite races! It’s not a course you’re likely to PB as it’s extremely hilly and scheduled in the heat of summer. But people are drawn to it for its pulsating township route, positive vibe from 40, 000 runners,… Continue reading How To Conquer Your Hard At Soweto
