FAIR conditions attracted some of the Eastern Cape’s top runners at The Herald Flexider Friendly City Marathon on Saturday.
Road running legend and Comrades Marathon women’s record-holder Frith van der Merwe came second in the 42.2km and first in her age group (45-49).
Ahead of Frith for the overall women’s title was Davera Magson, who is fast becoming the Eastern Cape’s golden hope for the Comrades. The Mr Price athlete won The Herald Flexider in a record time of 3:13:14.
Van der Merwe is based in Grahamstown, where she runs for Run for Life, but is a regular visitor to The Herald Flexider Marathon.
