Namaqua Wines Athletics Club Shines in Marathons all over SA

The Namaqua Wines athletics club has been earning their stripes in marathons all over South Africa - from the Comrades Marathon to the Oorlogskloof Trail Event in Vanrhynspas. We’re bursting with pride and we know that they will continue to keep the Namaqua Wines name high!

Congrats to Sanet Calitz and Henry Scholtz for winning bronze medals in the 2012 Comrades Marathon. It was Sanet’s fifth Comrades Marathon and Henry’s ninth. If everything goes as planned Henry will be running his 10th Comrades next year to qualify for his permanent number.

Athletes Carin Lochner, Stanely Porter, Riaan Combrinck, Alwyn Maass, Maretha Combrinck and Adele Maass fared well in the Oorlogskloof Trail Event on the 26th of May. The Namaqua Athletes completed the 18 km and 42 km marathons respectively. Alwyn Maass and Maretha Combrinck did excellently in the Mixed Open and came second in their categories. They also placed third in the overall marathon. It was an amazing experience and the athletes will definitely be returning next year!

Namaqua Wines was well represented at the popular SAD half marathon. Approximately 21 Namaqua Wines athletes participated in the marathon and a silver medal was taken home. Under the watchful eye of marathon maestro Alwyn Maass, newcomers Nico Louw and Joshua Fourie managed to finish the marathon with good times. Well done to all of you!

Five Namaqua Wines athletes completed the 50 km Addo Trailrun in March. The trailrun was organised by Extreme Marathons and was very challenging! The route had stunning views and everyone had a great time despite the difficult route. The athletes recommend the Addo Trailrun to everyone who’s up for a challenge!

Namaqua Wines cyclists take on the Cape Argus Cycle Tour, and finish with big smiles!

We’re so proud of our Namaqua Wines cyclists! All 18 of them finished the 2012 Cape Argus Cycle Tour on Sunday 11 March, and for many of them it was their first time taking on the gruelling 109 kilometres. To add to this success story – one of our trusty cyclists conquered the tour with a prosthetic leg, proving that nothing is impossible when you put your mind to it! These cyclists won’t be resting in winter - they will be taking on various Mountain Bike Challenges. We wish them all the best with this, and know that they will make us proud!
