Zimbabwe's Sharon Tavengwa was first home in the Spar Women's 10km Challenge at the Tuks sports grounds on Saturday, closing out Kenyan Joyce Mwende.
Tavenga finished in 34,58 minutes, while Mwende clocked 35 minutes.
Mr Price runner Louisa Leballo was the first South African to cross the finish line in 35,24, followed by teammate Rene Kalmer, iwinner of the first two Challenge races, in Port Elizabeth and Durban, in 36,17.
"I started off slowly and then took the lead after about three kilometres," said Tavengwa. Leballo said she found the course fairly tough, and her body was stiff. "I'm actually training for a marathon at the moment, but it was good to get in some speed work," she said.
More than 10000 women runners took part in the race. - Sapa
