Post Runner passed away - Soweto Marathon  Reply with quote
Condolences to the runner that passed away at Soweto Marathon yesterday.
My prayers will be with the family

I just received an article where a 65 year old runner has passed away when he was doing the 21.1km
He died about 2km from the finish. According to the article his daughter said that they were running together and talking and she was just a few meters infront of him when he called for her and he collapsed.

Very sad, as always, when one of our own passes away doing what we love best.

I didn't see the incident, but from what I understand from friends of mine who were running a few minutes behind me, that he must have collapsed soon after I passed the 18km mark, as they saw him but I didn't.

Our sincere condolences and thoughts go out to his family, especially his daughter, who was running with him. Sad
