“It takes dedication, training and commitment. It was an awesome race and good weather, and you tend to push yourself on the down run, which takes different mental preparation.”

Despite his membership at the Nedbank Running Club KZN [KwaZulu-Natal], Thulani paid tribute to his former Newcastle Harriers mentors, Elsa and Andre Grundlingh.

They were with him to receive a permanent number on Sunday.

Listing his movements from Harriers to Eskom Athletics Club and then Nedbank, Thulani said his successes were also down to fitness and aerobic classes.

He then extended his appreciation to those who helped along the way.

“Thank you to all Newcastle runners for being supportive, Bongumusa Gubevu, who introduced me to running, my wife, Sizakele and my children: Siyabonga, Sifiso, Sindi, Lindo and Ayanda.”
