2013 - Dark, Rainy and Cold

That was the 3 nature elements the almost one thousand walkers, runners and cyclist endured. The morning started off with no electricity in Memel and sub-zero temperatures and rain. But that would not discourage the athletes to take part in the Blood Buddy Memel to Newcastle Event sponsored by DA-XA.

This year, the event included 50 km Running and 58,4 km Mountain Bike event. 102 Mountain bikers took to the mountains and 30 individual runners run the first 50 km. The Blood Buddy Memel to Newcastle Event sponsored DA-XA is an annual event for companies, family and friends to bring camaraderie to each other. It is also an event where individuals want to achieve a personal goal. This year’s walk was nothing different.

Champ Marketing, the organizers, are proud of the event, but also took note of some of the suggestion from the athletes. The one thing that the organizers would like to apologize to all the athletes was the lack of toilets on the route, “ We would like to apologize to all athletes who needed a toilet on the route, we will make sure that next year there will be more than sufficient toilets on the route. “ The rest of the event was a great success.

A big thank you to all the companies who manned the water tables. The best water table, which was judge on look, presentation and extra food or drinks given to the athletes, was awarded to Lanxess Newcastle.

The Newcastle Traffic Department, RTI KZN and Free State Traffic must be compliment ant on great service rendered. Mario Gouws of Newcastle Traffic Department at one stage walked more than a km with one of the athletes and motivated the athlete – “ Mario is seen as a hero by the athlete “

The 20th anniversary will take place on Saturday the 9th August 2014.

The organizers requested the public and athletes to send suggestions to info@champ.co.za
