The defending champion of the women’s Tembisa Streetmile, Simonay Weitsz, will look to continue her mile-winning streak by winning the Randburg Mile on 4 September 2016. Mile races are becoming more prevalent in South Africa and so is winning for Weitsz, but can she get two-time lucky by winning the coveted Randburg Streetmile?

Seventeen year old Simonay Weitsz is slowly but surely becoming one of the household names on the South African senior athletics scene. If she progresses like she did over the past two years, she will soon be able to say “been there, got the t-shirt”. From representing South Africa in track & field, cross country and becoming one of the big road race stars, don’t be surprised if she one day wins a national or world trail-running championships. The three time medallist of this year’s South African Youth and Junior Championships and defending Tembisa Streetmile champion will look to add another title to her name when she lines up for the Randburg Streetmile on 4 September 2016.

Weitsz’ ‘go out hard and catch me if you can’ approaches to races make her one of the most difficult competitors to run against. Whether she runs against the seniors or the juniors, she wants to be in-front and that’s what we will see come September the 4 th . Her confidence level is on an all-time high after winning both the Central Gauteng and Gauteng North u/17 cross country titles this past two weeks! Can anything or anyone stop this youngster? Well, it does not seem so.

The Randburg Streetmile aims to give athletes what they deserve by providing one of the best elite fields in the country and by giving bigger than usual incentives, something that athletes (young and old) have been waiting to hear. Simonay Weitsz, this is another opportunity to shine your light, we will see you at the starting line for another great run.
