I am very fortunate to announce that Black Diamond has offered to sponsor a product every couple of months for my blog. Rather than pocketing the cash and retiring to Kommetjie I thought I would pass this on to you! So here goes!
For July Black Diamond is supplying me with their ultra light Flash pack. It is super light and will certainly be a great companion for any fast and light outing. Perfect size for running, biking, day walks or just mucking about.
How the comp works:
The person who predicts the finish order of the Hout Bay Trail Challenge for the top three men will receive this great prize worth R 410! All you have to do is:
Leave a comment to this post by the end of 23 July 2010 with your prediction of the top three finishers in their finish order. Also post a finish time for the winner (This will only be used if we have a tie breaker.).
So tell all your trail buddies of this super deal and leave your comment!
To start this off I will give you my take on some of the favourites:
William Robinson has won here before in 4:21 in 2008. The question is are a couple of weeks training good enough to win it this year?
Dion Middelkoop is on form this year and running strong. If Dion does not go out too hard (and blow later) he can take the overall and vet title.
John Collins from Team Mazda running fame is back at it. New to the HBTC but strong enough to give everyone a run for their money. John came second in last year’s Otter Trail Run.
Jayde Butler is the dark horse in this bunch. Jayde started the year with winning the Bat Run ahead of Mike Bailey. Then he won the Addo 50km. Watch out boys Jayde wants it bad!
Nicholas Rupanga is undoubtably the fastest of the bunch. The question is can he hang on and take it on the beach finish? And has he recovered from Knysna?
I will post the prize to you anywhere in SA free of charge. Position 1 will receive 3 points, position 2 will get 2, pos 3 will get 1. If two are drawn on points then we consider winning time. My decision is final. The winner will be contacted on Monday 26th.
