Good day all Cross Country friends

It is a few days before the 2016 Cross country championships will take place.  All the information we have put out earlier are still in place and most of the information that will go out today is for the athletes who will make use of the transport and accommodation.

Remember:  I will be picking up all the tracksuits and attire that need to go to George, tomorrow.  I am only the courier of the clothes and you must make sure that your arrangement with Mpumalanga Textiles are in place and your order is included in the box.

YELLOW BLOCKS on the attached team list, indicates outstanding information.  Athletes who have not paid their registration fees/bus fees, need to confirm whether they will still be going to the SA’s.  It is important that you urgently contact the office or myself.

Athletes who will be travelling by bus, please take note:

  1. You must take your own bedding.  The Hostel is only providing the beds/matrasses.
  2. Make sure you eat at home before you leave for the bus on Thursday.  The travel pack will be handed out very late that night when the buses come together and most of the items in the travel pack must be kept for breakfast and onward.
  4. Each bus have team managers who will be responsible for the admin and care of the people on the bus.  Their names are on the attached bus schedule.
  5. It does not matter where you get onto your specific bus (for example Nkangala bus:  Mhluzi/Middelburg/Witbank) , just make sure that you get onto the bus for your area, as listed.
  6. Make sure you are at the pick up point at least 30min before the departure time. The bus can not wait for anyone as the time schedule was worked out according to the arrival time in George.  If you are not on time, the bus will leave without you.
  7. With the arrival in George, we have arranged for lunch at the hostel (between 12:00 – 14:00). If the busses arrive according to the time schedule I will meet you there where we will then go through further arrangements.
  8. If you can not join the team remember to contact me or Hellouise.  If an athlete do not pitch up at the championships on Saturday (NO SHOWS) without informing us before Saturday, it will influence your future selection to the team.

Lastly, I hope everyone will travel safely to George and we as Mpumalanga team must look after our team mates.  We are a great team and I know everyone will  give there utmost best during their race.

Yours in athletics

Cross Country – News letter 2 of 2016

 6 April 2016

 Good day all Cross Country friends


 We are nearly at the start of the new season and it is clear that everyone is looking forward to a great 2016 season.

 Firstly I want to encourage all athletes to join a club.  This will be much cheaper for athletes who are 13 years and older who must be in possession of a number, than to buy a temporary license number at each event.  Most importantly, it gives you identity.  The only way to get a race number is by joining an affiliated club.  There should be a club in your area and if you can’t find a club close to you, please contact the office who will be able to give you information on the clubs in your area.

 The first league will start on 16 April 2016 and the venues will be:

  • Nkangala – No league due to the Loskop Marathon.
  • Gert Sibande – Secunda Stadium which is hosted by Sasol Embalenhle Sport Centre (Morning Program).
  • Ehlanzeni- Lydenburg High School (Morning Program).

 Currently there is only one event planned for League 2 at Nkangala.  The venue was cancelled on short notice and a new venue can only be finalised within the next few days.  Notifications on the venue will be sent out as soon as this has been finalised.

 The third league will take place on 30 April 2016 and the venues are:

  • Nkangala – Cambridge Academy : Emalahleni (Witbank) (Morning Program)
  • Gert Sibande- No league
  • Ehlanzeni- Great East, Bushbuck Ridge, (Morning Program)

 Take note, the entry fee for 2016 will be R25.

 The contact details for each area are as follow:

  • Nkangala:             Mari- 083 2332677
  • Gert Sibande:             Michael- 082 336 0662
  • Ehlanzeni:             Boikie-  082 977 1665

You are welcome to contact me at 083 6308 729.

 Keep in mind that you are welcome to run in any of the three areas.  For example if you stay in Secunda but you are visiting someone in Middelburg or you are with your school with a sport, you can join that league if it is within the time schedule.

 Few requirements:

  1. We need a certified copy of your birth certificate or Identity Document.

 You need to complete and submit the registration form. This is requested every year to make sure that up to date information is used.  This need to be submitted at the latest on the league of 7 May 2016.  Only athletes whose information and documentation have been received, will be considered for inclusion in the provincial teams.

  1. The Criteria for 2016, the programs as well as the fixtures for 2016 are available. Please make sure you read through the criteria.  This will avoid any misunderstandings when we have to select the team at the championships.

These documents can also be downloaded from our website:

 Please remember that the Interprovincial Championships will also be counted as a league for our athletes since we will be hosting the event this year.  The athletes who are not selected for the Mpumalanga Team must run with their club attire. Also take note that League 6 will be used to select the Mpumalanga Team for the Interprovincial Championships.

 We are looking forward to seeing all the old faces and to welcome the new ones.  Make sure you prepare well and remember to look after your health, the winter is drawing nearer. 

 Yours in athletics
