Post SA 10km Championships in Ethekwini for all

The SA 10km Championships on Sunday, 19 May will be hosted by Kwazulu Natal Athletics but won’t only include the SA Championships. It will be hosted in conjunction with a mass participation event for athletes that have not been selected by their provinces, but wish to compete at this event.

The SA 10km Championship main race will start at 08:00 with the route starting and finishing at the Kings Park Athletics Stadium in Ethekwini. The route will consist of a double 5km lap. The championship athletes will have the benefit of spectator support as they race though the stadium after one lap and a unique experience of running around the Durban’s iconic Moses Mahbida stadium.

In 2012 Elroy Gelant won the men’s title in 28:36 while Irvette van Zyl (formally van Blerk) crossed the line first in the senior women’s category, her time recorded at 33:21. But this year new champions will be crowned as neither of the senior defending champions will compete at the championships. Gelant is currently busy preparing for his European leg of track and field athletics while Van Blerk will run a 10km race in India.

Entries for the SA 10km championships close on Tuesday, 14 May and need to reach the Athletics South Africa office by the closing date. Provinces must send complete entries to pieterdj @ athleticssa.co.za

The Championships are combined with the SA Masters Championships, which will see athletes in eight additional age categories from 35-39 to 70+ compete for national gold silver and bronze medals. Entries for this competition are also handled through provincial bodies to the Athletics South Africa office.

Mass participation entries should not be sent to Athletics South Africa, but directly to the race organizers.

For the mass participation event an entry fee of R40 for registered athletes and R50 for non club members will apply. Anybody interested in competing may enter this event by paying the amount directly to the organisers. This race will start at 06h00 in Masabalala Yengwa Road. For more information on the mass participation event, please contact Ritesh Ramraj on 083 500 2265.

Schedule for the day:

06h00: Start of 10km Mass Participation race
08h00: Start of SA 10km Championships
10:00: Victory Ceremony

The winners in the open category at the SA 10km Championships will receive R3000 while second and third place will receive R2000 and R1000 respectively. Athletes finishing fourth and fifth will receive R500 and R250 for their efforts. There are also prize money for the other categories and team prizes as a total of R29 700 has been made available.
