Big turnout at Tomato Trot

THE annual Red Baron Tomato Trot took place last Saturday and attracted thousands of runners, walkers, cyclists and supporters.

Among them was former Comrades Marathon winner Alan Robb, who competed in the 15km Tomato Trot run.

A total of 530 athletes competed in the 15km run, and coincidentally, there were 530 cyclists who competed across the various cycling distances (55km, 35km, 15km and 8km).

The fun run attracted 1125 people, with an estimated 3500 runners, cyclists and supporters showing up for a day full of adventure. Sincere congratulations to all who took part and especially to those who placed in their races.
