Dear Club Secretary
Central Gauteng Athletics will be hosting the 30km Time Trials on 5 September 2021 at FNB Stadium, Nasrec. The purpose of the time trials is to select the CGA Marathon Team as there have been no official Marathon races in the last year. It is important to have these time trials to also check the fitness levels of our athletics.
There will only be a 30km distance targeting both men and women in the senior, veteran, and masters age categories. In order to comply with COVID-19 protocols and regulations, only pre-entries will be accepted. Registration will close on the 1st of September 2021 or as we reach the COVID-19 regulations capacity.
Entrant must be able to run 2h00 for males and 2h30 for females in order for the entry to be accepted. The Road Commission will reserve the right to refuse an entry if the athlete runs slower times than indicated. At least the top 4 athletes in the senior age category, top 3 in the veteran age category, and 1st position in the master categories with good times will be considered for the marathon team selection.
