GEORGE ATHLETICS NEWS - Elroy Gelant, a former learner of Outeniqua High School in George and one of South Africa's top middle distance athletes, will join his teammates from the Boxer Athletics Club for the FNB Run Your City Series (RYCS) Heritage Day Virtual Run on Thursday 24 September.
The Boxer Athletics Club has become the preeminent club for South Africa's greatest middle-distance athletes and has enjoyed many years of successful participation in the FNB RYCS events.
According to Gelant, the FNB RYCS provides athletes with the platform to compete against world-class athletes.
"Because of Covid-19 and the lockdown period, we haven't had races to participate in. The RYCS Heritage Day Virtual Run is a great initiative. Athletes all around the country can take part. My goal is to secure a top three finish and also run a good time in the 5K," said Gelant, referring to the Friday 5K Solo Run Series powered by Puma.
"I look forward to seeing everyone on the road on 24 September when we celebrate our culture and heritage together."
