Informally we have been keeping track of our runners who were awarded a Rhodes ‘Snowflake’ Permanent Number and received the Baviaanskloof ‘Legend’ award.
There were five runners who completed the 'Raubenheimer Double' in 2018, Anthony Bernard, Mark Groch, Alicia Grobler, Benita Joubert and Gerhard Vosloo.
To commemorate the 30th Rhodes Run and the 10th Baviaanskloof Run we created special trophies for the three best combined times.
Alicia Grobler (12:41:01) and Gerhard Vosloo (13:40:51) took 4th and 5th places respectively.
The 'Raubenheimer Double 2018' trophies, with gold, silver and bronze plaques were presented to Benita, Mark & Anthony.

Raubenheimer Doubles

Interesting question posed by Mark Groch on the Baviaans Run Twitter platform after completing his 7th Baviaanskloof Trail Run.
"How many #raubeheimerdoubles? @RhodesTrailRun @BaviaansRun"
Mark created a super collage which he posted with his question.
There were five who completed the 'Raubenheimer Double' in 2018, completing the Rhodes Trail Run as well as the Baviaanskloof Trail Run.
In addition to Mark there was Alicia Grobler, Benita Joubert, Anthony Bernard and Gerhard Vosloo.
