Greetings K-Way Jeppe members!

What a fantastic turn out on Saturday for Jon Pimm’s retirement run.  All schools walked/ran our new Jon Pimm 6/10k route that included a tough section up Pine street.  The Jon Pimm route will no doubt feature in our training program in the future.  Champagne and cake after the run, was enjoyed by everybody.  Jon will still be training at the club until the end of November when he and Bev move to Swellendam

November Summer training
Training continues this week Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 05h00 and Saturday at 05h30 and 06h30.  Tuesdays are “tempo Tuesday” and Captains can choose the tempo run and would suggest alternating between the various tempo routes we do.  This weekend it’s the Fledglings turn to plan the club longer run on Saturday and the options are 7.5km, 10.5km and 16.5km, routes to follow later this week.  Good luck to those doing the Kaapsehoop “virtual runs” this Saturday. We have a few runners going up to Kaapsehoop to do the actual route including a big group from the Walking School.
