  Athletix - Head to Head 800m Women
Posted by: Newsroom - 26-02-2018, 01:15 PM - Forum: SA Running and Trail - No Replies

A field of nine women will line up in the 800m at the first of Athletix Grand Prix Meeting in Ruimsig on Thursday, 01 March. Below are some of the athletes who are expected to be in the mix for line honours.

Head to Head 800m Women: Athletix Grand Prix Series Meeting 1, Ruimsig

Winnie Nanyondoof Uganda looks to be the race favourite with an 800m best of 1:58.63 which she ran in Monaco in 2014. Nanyondo is the Commonwealth Games 800m bronze medallist from 2014 and with a best of 53.72sec in the 400m, Nanyondo has the fastest half lap time in the field.

Halimah Nakaayi has experienced both the World Championships (2017) and the Olympic Games (2016) and will have learned how to handle pressure situations. Her 1:59.78 is the second fastest 800m time in the field and her 53.02 PB for the 400m shows that there is good speed in her legs, even though that time was run at home in Kampala, Uganda at altitude.

Gena Löfstrand the former South African champion likes to front run and is not averse to taking the pace out upfront, something she did to great effect at the World Championships in London in 2017 in the first round. Her aggression paid off and she went through the bell leading the field, clocking 58.71sec. She was passed by six other athletes, but had done enough to make sure she ran a fast enough time to get to the semi-finals. Rest assured, Löfstrandwill once again take the race out hard. She could well cause a bit of an upset.

Other athletes in the field to take note of are 18-year-old Vimbayi Maisvoreva from Zimbabwe who competed at the World U18 Championships in Nairobi in 2017,Tsepang Sello from Lesotho and Liza Kellerman who as a 16-year-old ran 2:05.75 which placed her 12th in the U18 world rankings in 2016. Just like country woman, Gena Löfstrand, Liza Kellerman likes to front run. Thetwo could well combine to set a fast pace.

  XTERRA route equates to heaven for outdoor enthusiasts
Posted by: Newsroom - 13-02-2018, 11:28 AM - Forum: SA Running and Trail - No Replies

Taking place at the Elgin-Grabouw Country Club the weekend of 23 – 25 February 2018, the Fedhealth XTERRA Grabouw route is best described as being heaven for outdoor enthusiasts.

“We look forward to welcoming both local and international XTERRA Warriors to the largest XTERRA in the world,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports. “The Elgin-Grabouw Country Club will treat entrants to breathtaking views of the surrounding Hottentots Holland, Nuweberg and Groenland mountains, while the waterfront ambiance of the Eikenhof Dam boasts an overwhelming sense of tranquility and enchantment.XTERRA Warriors can look forward to a well-balanced mountain bike and trail run route, with technical and fast open sections. The route is guaranteed to be challenging, but rewarding.”

EVENT INFORMATION:Fedhealth XTERRA Grabouw (Elgin-Grabouw Country Club, Western Cape)
Date: Event:
Friday, 23 February 2018 • Fedhealth XTERRA Kids
6-8 years (60m Swim, 2km MTB, 600m Trail Run)
9-11 years (100m Swim, 3km MTB, 1.5km Trail Run)
12-15 years (250m Swim, 5km MTB, 2.5km Trail Run)
Saturday, 24 February 2018 • XTERRA Trail Run: 6km and/or 12km
• Fedhealth XTERRA Full: 1.5km Swim, 25.6km MTB, 12.6km Trail Run
Sunday, 25 February 2018 • Fedhealth XTERRA Lite: 400m swim, 14km MTB, 6.5km Trail Run

Please Note: The water level in the Eikenhof Dam is lower than in previous years. As a result the run from the water’s edge to the transition area will be +- 500m in length.

Fedhealth XTERRA Full / MTB course:
The mountain bike route starts with a 3km climb, taking riders up to the highest point on route. Some sections on the climb are loose, resulting in difficult riding. There are a few technical descents with very loose rocks. After 8km the single track fun with start with 80% of the climbs done. The infamous rock garden is definitely on the cards. If your technical skill is not up to scratch, please be careful.

Fedhealth XTERRA Full / Trail Run course:
The first 2km of the trail run route is fast with little technical sections. After the first water point the first bit of single track will take runners through the river. This is always a winner on hot days. The big climb is the next phase of the run. This starts around the 4km mark and is followed by a fast 3km downhill. The last few kilometers are more difficult as the terrain next to the dam consists of loose sand, logs, some single track and one last little uphill.
