Team PVAC at the recent challenge.
In the true spirit of Ubuntu, the team members of the Phoenix Villagers Athletic Club seized the opportunity to be part of the recent KwaMashu challenge, which consisted of a 10km run/ walk and a 21, 1km challenge.
With much jubilation, the runners and helpers from PVAC were ready to take up the challenge in support of their neighbours despite the cold weather. By doing this, they created social cohesion.
KwaMashu is a township 12 kilometres north of Durban. The name is in honour of Sir Marshall Campbell and means ‘place of marshall’.
KwaMashu is bordered by Newlands East to the south, Newlands West to the west, Ntuzuma to the north, Phoenix to the north-east, Mount Edgecombe to the east and Durban North to the south-east.

The organisers were true to their words in providing a safe and secure environment as runners made their way through the streets of KwaMashu.
The ample parking and presence of law enforcement officers were very impressive. The route was extremely neat and scenic with some difficult hills to overcome.
Well-deserved accolades are afforded to the organisers for placing sufficient marshalls and hydration stations at strategic positions along the route.
“Congratulations to the KwaMashu Athletic Club, organisers and sponsors for hosting a successful event,” said team PVAC.
