Update from South African 6-day race

2006 Toyota Dealers 6 Day5 Hours George Archer of local club Johannesburg Harriers is leading with 40km.2nd is George Niemandt on 34km. Weather is 30 degrees in the sun with very little shade. 1st lady is Susan Hurter on 32km. This is the 1st 3 day run of rainfree days in the last two months4 of the runners are permanent number holders - at least 3 previous runs. Both George's and Brian Collings are into their 6th journey

1 Hour-another fine sunny morning All 19 entrants started the race at 10:05:12 So far, nobody has been hit by a cricket ball although the cricketers ask if we can avoid running across in front of the screeens. Quite cheeky. One side is already out so they should finish sooner. George Niemandt is leading after an hour with 10km (10 laps).
