CGA Successfully Hosted The 5th Cross Country League

Cross Country

Central Gauteng Athletics hosted the 5th league of the 2024 Cross Country season on Saturday, 22 June 2024 at Marivate Park, Daveyton in collaboration with East Athletics Club.

A fairly warm day with over 1300 athletes taking part at the event which has increased from the previous league and as we get closer to the end of the season.

The first race of the day was the girls under 13 with the athletes running a 3km distance, which Chelsea Van Dyk of Benoni Northerns claimed the first position in the time of 13:21. Boiphelo Maroga of Masai came second finishing in the time of 13:49 with Zanele Mzizi of Langaville finishing 3rd clocking 14:23.

One of the highlights of the day was the Senior Men 2km event which saw Nkosinathi Sibiya clocking 05:59 to claim the 1st position. Sibiya claimed the victory he was closely followed by his team mate from UJ, Boikanyo Mothlamme who secured the second position also clocking 05:59. This was Mothlamme’s 1st Cross Country League this season after his recovery from an injury towards the end of 2024 Track and Field season. In a post-race interview, he indicated that he is looking forward to defending his 2023 Provincial and National title. The third position went to Dylan van der Merwe of Boxer in the time of 06:00.

The senior men 4km race kept spectators on their feet with Boxer athletes taking all podium positions. Chris Mhlanga and Kabelo Mulaudzi battled it out for the first spot. Mhlanga came out to claim the gold position in the time of 11:55 and Mulaudzi settling for the silver position in the time of 12:06. Kabelo Melamu also gave his all to finish 3rd clocking 12:11.

With only 3 leagues remaining for the 2024 Cross Country season, Athletes are reminded they have to run at least 4 out of 8 leagues plus the CGA Championships to be considered for selection to represent the province at the 2024 ASA Cross Country Championships.
