18th of May 2015

Good day all Cross Country friends

A successful event took place in all three areas and we could select a strong team for the Interprovincial Championships that will take place at Merensky High School at Tzaneen.

Thank you very much for each athlete and supporter who let it took place in good spirit. It was great to see from above how all the athletes really tried their best to run on the track. For those who run for their first time, welcome to the competition where you can compete against other athletes and yourself.

I had a few requests from people to know what happen if you are not select to the team.

Please, the team was selected for this specific event at Merensky High School and after this we will start again to prepare for the Mpumalanga Championships in August. The most important thing to remember is to make sure you reach the minimum criteria of 4 leagues to ensure you can take part in the Mpumalanga Championships.

I want to ask every athlete to make sure they are preparing themselves for the event of 6 June 2015. The competition will be strong and as we did over the last three years, we can end up in the first three on the podium.

I forgot to add the telephone number of Mpumalanga Embroideries on the form to order your running attire. There will be no track suites available. If you do not want to order any running attire, you are welcome to use your club or school running attire.

You only have time until Thursday, 21 May 2015 to order your attire from Mpumalanga Embroideries and it is for your own cost. Their telephone number is 013-2826686.

Also, each athlete who was selected for the team received an acknowledgement form that was supposed to be handed in last Saturday at the event. Transport will only be available if it was indicate so.

The next league will take place on the 23rd of May 2015 and the venues will be:

Nkangala- Cambridge, Hockey Farm (Morning Program)

Gert Sibande- Ligbron High School, Ermelo (Morning Program).

Ehlanzeni- Mbombela Stadium at Hall’s Sports Ground (Afternoon Program). Tiaan is available on 082 731 3734.

TAKE NOTE, THE VENUE FOR LEAGUE 6 AT NKANGALA WHICH IS PRESENT BY CAMBRIDGE ACADEMY WILL TAKE PLACE AT HOCKEY FARM AND NOT AT CAMBRIDGE ACADEMY.

There is so far no league planned for the weekend of 29th of May 2015. The next event will then be the Interprovincial Championships that will take place on the 6th of June. All athletes of 30 years and older please make sure you use your age tags on the front and back of your running vest. More information will follow in the next newsletter.

Take note, the entry fee for 2015 will be R20 and the temporarily licence for the athletes 13 years and older who is not member of an affiliated club is R25.
