ZIMBA WINS LEGENDS MARATHON


Mike Fokorani (41) has won the Legends Marathon, walking away with R50 000.

“I’m very proud of myself, but I’m disappointed because the prize money was reduced. First place used to be worth R120 000, but it’s dropped to R50 000.

“But I won’t complain because maybe some of the sponsors pulled out of the event. I will join the race again next year to defend my title,” he said.

The 68km women’s race was won by Jennifer Koech (39) from Kenya. “I spent three months preparing for this marathon,” she said.

“If you want to achieve something, you have to work hard. It wasn’t easy but I managed to win.”
The department of sport footed the bill.
