The Phoenix Villagers, who proudly supported the recent Gaterite Challenge.
Runners from the Phoenix Villagers Athletic Club were all laced up and ready to take on the Gaterite Challenge at the Verulam Recreational Grounds, recently.
The driven athletes turned out in large numbers to support the marathon that is run on a route, which is undulating and fast.
This event was the last qualifier for the 2019 Comrades Marathon. The challenge comprised of 42, 2km, 21, 1km and 10km.

Winners were handsomely rewarded in various categories together with T-shirts and goodie bags to all finishers. The management and athletes of PVAC would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Verulam Athletic Club for hosting such a well-organised event.
Hydration is a prerequisite in any such event and this was plentiful together with other refreshments which were well stocked at the tables that were strategically positioned. The marshalls and volunteers did an excellent job along the route.
