CGA Hosts a successful first leg of Pick n Pay Junior Road Running Series

Central Gauteng Athletics hosted a successful leg of the 2015 Pick n Pay Junior Road Running Series in partnership withPick n Pay this past Saturday 18 April 2015 in Ekurhuleni, Phumula.

The first leg event was organised by Gallopers Athletics Clubs, a special thanks to the hosting school Phumula Secondary Schools for granting the usage of their sports grounds.

A magnificent turnout of 2050 kids attended the race, with the majority taking part in the 2.5km race. This gives an indication that the purpose of this particular program is being achieved as more kids are entering the world of athletics at an age as young as 5 years. The 5km race had coach’s expectations raised as it was very competitive, with the likes of Olga Magwagwa (14.54.08) of Ubuhle Athletics Club, one of the future top athletes maintaining her leading position from yester years and Tumelo Lephoto (11.38.56) of Global who has also grown gradually within the series.

Central Gauteng Athletics would like to thank parents and the community for showing great support in making the event a success. We would like to thank our partner Pick n Pay for giving out goodie bags to all winners of the day including lunch packs to all finishers of both races.

Central Gauteng Athletics wanted to change the future. So, in partnership with Pick n Pay, they took kids off the streets and put them on the race track, giving them hope and a second chance.
