Process closes for Championship events


The bidding process closed on Friday, September 26, and the decision will now be made who will stage the various national championships events for 2014.

For these purposes a Competition Committee was appointed who will work through the bidding documents and decide on the successful candidates. It was decided that members of this committee should be experienced runners that collectively have good knowledge of the many races and terrains in South Africa and must not be race organisers themselves.

We are fortunate to have the following people serving on the committee:

Cape region:
Ryan Sandes
Linda Doke
Cas van Aardenne

KZN region
Iain Don-Wauchope
Deon Braun

Gauteng region
Dirk Cloete

This committee will be responsible for the following:

1. Appointing the national trail championship events.
2. Appointing races to be used as qualifying events for national team selection.
3. The implimentation of a points system for qualification.
4. National team selection.
5. Liaison with elite runners.
6. Liaison with sponsors.
7. Team management to international events.

Since Trail Running SA is still in a process to decide the format and structure of the sport, this and other committees are currently appointed and not selected.  In future, once the sport is fomalised, proper elections will be held to fill positions in the various committees.
