Jive Slave Route Challenge
Sunday 12th May 2013 – Grand Parade
This is to confirm my telephone call to you today.
What a superb race the Slave Route challenge is. It is such a wonderful challenging and interesting route steeped in History. This is my book, is one of the best races I have run and definately will be a highlight for me in the WPA running Calendar in the future.
The Marshalls were all smiling and alert and acknowledged thanks wherever I ran. The Water stops were well placed and exceedingly efficient.
The Traffic Police were very efficient and friendly too.
Thanks so much to you and the Committee who I am sure put many hours of hard work into the race, the sponsers and all who helped along the way inlcuding those at Entry and Registration points. Great not to have to fill out forms at the Entries Tables, so efficient and no queues. I registered for 3 of us at Sportsmans in Rondebosch and was in and out in no time at all. :D
At that hill ....................... was expecting an unduling route well what a surprise!!!! Then the Jive and Koeksisters.
Well done to you all.
Anre and Lynette Slabbert (Southern Striders) have also asked me to let you know how they enjoyed the race and thank you all as well. Congratulations!!

Thanks to everyone for a wonderful event, superbly organised and most enjoyable. This was my wife and my first Challenge but definitely not the last. Where did you find so many good looking marshals and water table helpers. Thanks to them all for the encouragement along the way.
