Nearly a thousand runners gathered for the third Siza Fit half marathon and five km fun run this morning. Event organiser, Noluthando Vithi, said they were thrilled that the event has grown and has increased in numbers.
The 21km which sees runners tackle a moderate to difficult course showcases Port Alfred at its best. The course took runners through Nemato, Station Hill, Port Alfred CBD as well as onto scenic roads near the ocean.
