We did it again! 23 of our team members along with partners and kids, took part in the highly anticipated Absa Run Your City 10km race from Milnerton to Town. Each year, we eagerly look forward to this event and it never fails to deliver. We kicked off the day bright and early, arriving in town with excitement coursing through our veins. From there, we hopped on a shuttle to Woodbridge Island in Milnerton where it started.
At 8AM, the race began! Despite the typical Cape Town wind putting up a fierce fight at the start, we persevered. As we made our way closer to the CBD, the wind became our ally, propelling us towards the finish line. The route showcased the scenic beauty of Milnerton and took us through the heart of the city, ultimately ending in Lower Long Street in the CBD. Crossing that finish line filled us with an incredible sense of accomplishment and pride. Following the race, we gathered at Kauai to refuel with delicious and nutritious breakfasts and smoothies.
We extend our heartfelt congratulations to all our remarkable TJers who participated and gave their all in this race. A special shout-out goes to our own Yongama Ndumiso, who demonstrated incredible resilience by completing the 10km race in an impressive 39 minutes, securing the 89th place out of the approximate 12 000 participants!
Looking ahead, we eagerly anticipate next year’s race as we continue to champion a culture of fun, fitness, wellness, and healthy living within our workplace. It’s moments like these that bring us closer together as a team and remind us of the incredible things we can achieve when we support and uplift one another.
