50 Team Chev runners arrived in Cape Town with great excitement to run the Cape Peninsula Marathon despite warnings of a heat wave (38°c and winds of 40 to 50km/hr) with one goal in mind – to raise money to buy the Sandringham Gardens residents a much-needed new bus.

Chev - Cape marathonThe Shabbat Dinner at Avrons was attended by 60 of the group which included spouses and family-members.
It turned out to be an outstanding team builder Shabbos with discussions on hydration, special tips for running and a Shiur by Rabbi Fox relating the Parsha to the run and each individual’s commitment to the Chevrah Kadisha.

Baruch Hashem, all of the Team Chev runners completed their race.

Rabbi Fox saw the top-performer among the half-marathon Team Chev runners –finishing in an unbelievable time of 93 minutes.
