APRIL BUILDS ON FINE FORM
Lusapho April continued his impressive build-up to the Boston Marathon with another solo victory in Port Elizabeth on Saturday morning.
April won the Cassies 15km race in 44:12, just one week after racing to a solo 1:02:20 at the Border Masters Half-Marathon.
His performance in Port Elizabeth was the fastest 15km time on SA soil since March 2010, and 64 seconds outside his personal best set en route to his 1:01:15 half-marathon career record at the global championships last year.
“My preparations for a 61-minute race at the New York City Half-Marathon (on March 15) and a fast Boston Marathon (on April 20) remain firmly on track,” he said.
