Pick n Pay Marathon 2014 a resounding success

14 February 2014

They came. They ran. They conquered at this year's Pick n Pay Marathon.

The Pick n Pay Marathon was held on Sunday, 9 February 2014, at the Saheti School in Senderwood, Bedfordview.  This was the 31st year of the prestigious event sponsored by Pick n Pay and hosted by Jeppe Quondam Athletics.

This year saw entries soaring to 6,013 – the largest yet. Pick n Pay and Jeppe Quondam Athletics put a huge effort into a drive to get runners to pre-enter, and enter online. It paid off: 4,445 runners entered online, and all 6,013 pre-entered, making it the first time no late entries were issued.

Pick n Pay Marathon 2014

The Fun Run recorded its highest amount of participants in history with 2,144 running the 8km race. This event has grown hugely since six years ago where it only saw 250 runners participating. PinkDrive, who are the event's official charity, raised over R33,000 through the generous donations by our runners. We’d like to thank all the runners who supported PinkDrive.

Once again the weather was on our side and we had lovely overcast morning, which warmed up later, keeping the runners happy and the course cool.

42km winners

Male: Elias Mabane (Nedbank Running Club) - 2:30:29
Female: Gillian Sieling (Nedbank Running Club) - 2:30:29

21km winners

Male: Leswene Africa Mailola (Nedbank Running Club) - 1:09:26
Female: Alemtsehay Hail Kakissa (Nedbank Running Club) - 1:19:50

The day went very well, with very few incidents along the road. The atmosphere on the finish line was festive, and many clubs enjoyed the morning of running with their fellow members. We look forward to another successful event in 2015.
