Purdons take medals at the Two Oceans Marathon

PURDON’S PRIDE: Competing in the Two Oceans Marathon in Cape Town on Saturday were, sisters and mom, from left, Kyla van Rensburg (nee Purdon), with sister Teagan Purdon, their mom Shirley Purdon, and sister Taryn Purdon, who were all awarded medals having completed the event

While TV viewers may have been disappointed at not being able to watch the Two Oceans from the comfort of their own homes last Saturday, locals will be happy to know the Purdon sisters and their mom, originally all from Cannon Rocks, ran the race and won medals to boot.

Taryn and Tegan both matriculated at Port Alfred High School, Kyla finishing Grade 10 at PAHS before moving to Port Elizabeth. Two of the sisters are Rhodes graduates, Taryn (B Comm) and Tegan (LL b). Kyla has just graduated from Nelson Mandela University with a B Eng (Mechatronics) degree.
