Ageless Record

E-mail Print PDF

Over our 25 years the UTi Rhodes Run has seen a number of multiple title holders, both first overall and age category winners.

Our first three-time overall winner was Jannie le Roux and he was followed by Gary Smith, Tammy Kelly and Trevor Toerien. Tammy is our only five-time winner.

Our most successful age category winner is Marietta van Rooyen (nee Sassenburg) who chalked up seven category wins (6 veteran & 1 master) in addition to her two overall wins. Marietta also won two 'Queen of the Kloof' titles.

Our most prolific age category winner is undoubtedly Phillip van Niekerk who is the only person to win the 'veteran', 'master' and 'grand-master' categories at Rhodes. Phillip took the veteran category once, two masters titles and so far one grand-master title. Oh, throw in a 'King of the Kloof' title as well. That's some achievement!

In two weeks Phillip will be looking to notch up his 28th Dusi, this year in a K2 partnering another Rhodes runner, Gina Hinchliffe.

Good luck Gina & Phillip!


Good seeing you!

IRONMAN Black Red 900X230

We know a bunch of you are not on Twitter, so here is a bit of 'belt & braces'.

It was fantastic seeing and chatting with so many of you this weekend at Ironman 70.3 Buffalo City (East London). Thank you to all of you who came over and said 'hi', and those who greeted while out on the road, even if the greetings were somewhat muffled by the motor-bike noise!

Special congratulations to Jan Bez, Paddy Cloete and Gerhard Vosloo who completed their 7th East London 70.3 - yes, they have done all of them! Pretty certain that they are not the only Rhodes runners to have completed all seven, there are sure to be others.

A quick glance through the results and we see Charles Naude, Robbie Coulson, Ken Poole took line honours in their category.  Well done!

There will be, again, quite a number of you taking on Ironman Port Elizabeth in April. We wish all of you well with your training and a very special 'good luck' to Paddy Cloete, Kris Fesel, Gerhard Vosloo and Franzt Struwig who will be lining up for their 10th consecutive Ironman Port Elizabeth. Something very special.

Gerhard and Franzt also completed the inaugural 70.3 in Port Elizabeth in 2004 that was the 'warm-up' for the first full Port Elizabeth Ironman in 2005.


Respite on Mavis Booked

Those booking a photo opportunity stop having conquered Mavis, aka a respite or 'breather', will be pleased to know that the Kisch Krew team from DM Kisch Inc will once again be catering for their every need, well almost every need !, when they reach the border road.

Kisch Krew, the team that manned that unforgettable 'Rolling Check Point' in the 2012 blizzard, are hoping that they will be static in 2014 and are looking forward to welcoming Rhodes veterans and virgins to their thin air hospitality zone.

Forum Kicks Off

E-mail Print PDF

It is still early days, very early days, but nice to see that the Forum has linked it's first donor and nominee.

To quote the substitute "I officially booked my date with Miss Mavis....and it's gonna be a one night stand!".

Not much love in that relationship obviously!

Those on the Forum, don't stress, 'substitution season' only swings into full force in May.
