Marina le Roux

Chairman 

My Running Career:

I’ve been running since 2016 and completed my first Marathon in 2017.  Since then I have run multiple marathons and ultras; with my first Comrades finish in 2019.  My love for running and our club is growing year on year

My Running Goals for 2021:

2020 threw us all a curve ball with COVID-19 and I could not run my back to back Comrades, however will endeavour to do so in 2021.  In addition I hopefully will start competing in Triathlons in 2021.

Club Captain

My Running Career:

I started long distance road running in July 2016 and completed my first half marathon in September 2016 (SABS). Thereafter my first marathon in January 2017 (Ottosdal). First Ultra Marathon March 2017 (Om die Dam) and then my first Comrades June 2017.  To date I have completed 3 Comrades up till 2019.

2020 dealt us all a blow proving to have been an exceedingly difficult year for races, although we had some special moments with garden runs. 

 

My running goals for 2021: 

Not sure what 2021 has in store  for us but I’m ready for it! 

I will keep on loving this sport, motivating people to start, and making more friends.

My Running Career:

As an MTB’er, I supported my friend with his 2018 Comrades and the running bug bit.

I started training and completed my first Marathon in 2018, the Jacaranda Marathon. I went on to complete my first Ultra,  Two Oceans and then completed my first Comrades in 2019. Later that year I joined the Skillies.

 

My running goals for 2021: 

My first goal for 2021 is to complete a sub 3:30 Marathon and would love to complete the Comrades Back to Back.

Treasurer

My Running Career:

I started out doing some morning runs with a bunch of friends a few years ago. Slowly but surely a weekly 5km run, became a 10km run and then somehow the 2 Oceans 21km snuck its way into my diary.  For a few years, the 21km was enough for me.  Three years ago, I did the New York Marathon with a group of friends.  Since then I have done the Berlin, Chicago , Soweto, Kaapsehoop and Cape Town Marathons.  I have also done Comrades twice.

My Running Goals for 2021:

The London Marathon is on the horizon for 2021.  Along with Comrades no 3 and bettering that PB on the Ironman. The long-term goal is to do the 6 world majors.

My Running Career:

I started running in 2014 with the intention to only run 5km (and to lose weight). With a very encouraging club manager and someone that believed in me I ran my first marathon in 2015 and never looked back. I've since done a few marathons and ultras but my first love and favourite is still the half marathon. I'm now addicted to running and the fellowship that comes with it. I also love trail running!

 

My Running Goals for 2021

My dream is still to run an international marathon. Who knows, perhaps 2021 is the one! I'll keep on training (and loving it), with that goal in mind!
