Night Race competitors

This year’s Night Race Cross Country on the TUT grounds is around the corner (9 May) and we have invited some big guns to come battle it out on the 6km route! With prize money for position 1 to 5 and even money for the first athlete across the line first and second lap (provided that athlete finishes the race) we’ll be hoping these athletes show up with one thing in mind and that is to give the crowd a RACE!!!! And to bring back the 2014 NightRunner title!

And probably we will see a huge margin of the Transnet army showing up and no doubt TUT athletes will be in full participation.
