ZINI BUSH CHALLENGE 2017
The 10th annual Mtunzini Bush Run on August the 6th, was truly a special event. With 943 participants attending, a record number of entries, and so the race day went: Volunteers and club members started helping out from the, 5am crack of dawn. Assisting with late entries and setting out fires so that eager runners could keep warm.
The 16km set off first, the 10km next and the 5km fun run rounded things up.
At the start line Routes took runners past Raphia palms, Siyaya hiking trails and even on the beach for some time. All routes were beautiful, enjoyed by all, except for the heart-break hill at the end, but no runner was too broken or exhausted, that an egg and bacon roll could not mend.
Every runner got a medal to brag their efforts and prize giving brought further celebrations. Lucky draws, hampers and category prizes were enjoyed by all at the occasion.
Congrats to all runners, congrats to the winners and the biggest ups to the race committee members.
A sneaky after party was held, everyone was thanked, 2017 Bush Run was definitely a year to be remembered.
