The Phoenix Villagers team at the marathon.
Runners from the Phoenix Villagers Athletic Club were excited to tackle the 2019 Threshold Hillcrest Marathon, over the weekend.
Proudly hosted by the Hillcrest Villagers Athletic Club, this was the 40th edition of this sporting event, which has always been one of the favourites on the KZN running calendar.

With an exciting new title sponsor on board, the event had a fresh look while retaining its traditional two-lap course through the picturesque tree lined route into Winston Park for the full marathon, while half marathon runners and walkers did one lap.
This marathon was again the first KZN Two Oceans and Comrades qualifier of 2019 and results will automatically be submitted as qualifying time for this year’s Comrades Marathon.
All participants who finished within the generous cut-off times received a commemorative moisture management T-shirt and medal.
PVAC management congratulates all participants and Hillcrest Villagers AC for hosting this popular event.
