lebogang-shangeThe South African 50km & Interprovincial Race Walk Championships that usually takes place during this time of the year is making its rounds again this coming Saturday, 8 October 2016. Western Province Athletics (WPA) has been the host of these championships in recent years and with race walking on the rise in South Africa, we can expect race walkers from across the country to flock to yet another well organized championship this weekend.

Race walkers of all ages and walks of life will battle it out between 06h00-12h00 at the Youngsfield Military Base, a Base that not only provides a perfect 2km race walk loop, but also spoils the walkers with one of the best spots to witness the picturesque Table Mountain.

This championship has been a breeding ground for Olympians such as Anel Oosthuizen, Marc Mundell, Wayne Snyman, Lebogang Shange and Nicolene Cronje, so it is a competition all South African wish to compete in before strutting their talents elsewhere.

More information on the championships will be posted throughout the week.
