February - Andries Msiza

Our Magnolian of the Month for February is Andries Msiza. Andries is the friendly face you usually see in the club house parking area when you arrive for a Sunday run or any other club activity. He makes sure our cars are safe and will even clean it for you if you ask him. During the time when there were no Sunday runs due to Covid, Andries was always willing to open the club house for those who wanted to do a run from the club.

These are just some of the many things Andries does at the club, and he is always willing to help with a smile! Thanks so much Andries, you're a star!!
March - Peter Purchase

All runners are crazy, but some are a little crazier than others. One of them is our Magnolian of the Month for March – Peter Purchase.
 
In March Peter completed the Race to Cradock, a 583 km mountain bike race… however, he RAN it. Same route as the bikes, 8 300 m elevation and 8 days, 12 hours and 10 minutes later, Peter claimed his body was shattered and his soul restored!
 
Well done Peter!! This is an amazing achievement!

 
Rest in Peace Phillip du Toit

We were sad to learn of the passing of Phillip du Toit, a well-known and beloved member of the Pretoria running community.
 
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to Phillip's family and friends!
