Two Oceans changed their entry system, as well as their online applications process.
GDA was chosen as a beneficiary of the race. This meant that we could not have any charity entries in the race but we benefitted from the thousands of runners who entered. During the registration process runners could choose their charity of choice and GDA was one of four charities to benefit.
At the opening ceremony prior to race registration GDA were presented with a cheque of R75,000.
The generosity of spirit of thousands of runners participating in the World’s most scenic marathon is amazing. Oregon was on hand to receive the cheque.
Our most celebrated bare foot runner, Peter Taylor once again ran for S A Guide-Dogs. The Argus featured an article on Peter and this helped raise the awareness of the amazing work done by GDA, their puppy raisers and the merry band of volunteers who unselfishly give of themselves.
The dogs were once again the show stopper at the expo and sold a record number of raffle booklets.
