Liz Pribul RIP

Our thoughts go out to Treasurer Graham Pribul, whose wife Liz passed away on 20th June 2018 after a brief illness.

Graham has been one of the club's most active and committed members since the 1980s and was President from 2009-11. Liz has always been a great support to him and has helped, particularly, with the administration of our annual Schools Cross Country League races.

WGEL comrades do The Comrades

Three of our members recently travelled to South Africa to participate in the famous 89K (55 miles) Comrades Marathon. This is a race which alternates its direction each year to be a "down-run" or "up-run", and was this year the down-run. Julian Russell, James Perry and Zoe Watson were our representatives. This is a report by Julian, whose father Richard has done the race no fewer than 28 times:

"The race was amazing, everything I expected and more. Dad's advice in the lead up delivered us to the start line in Pietermaritzburg with nerves under control, healthy respect for the challenge but positivity in spades. I soon faced my first hydration issue 30 mins before the start as I couldn't stop crying when I got in the pen! But settled down in time for the official songs and countdown, and the excitement took over as we were off.
