• Thought for the Month... One never knows what one may accomplish until one tries. That is so simple that some people completely overlook it.
  • Please email Ian at buddy.adverts@gmail.com if you are interested in your church becoming a Participating Church in the Buddy Adverts ministry.
  • Remember the Rietvlei Park Run, every Saturday morning at 8am. It's 5km, but it's up to you whether you walk or run it! And you'll be surprised at how many of your friends you'll meet there.... but be careful! This is how many Comrades runners get started!
  • The next Friday Evenings at Brackenhurst Methodist Church Coffee Shop are: 17 Aug, 2 Sept, 7 Oct, 4 Nov - see further details below....
  • .
  • Is 2019 your year to tick Comrades off your bucket list, or will you always wonder if you could have made it? If so, you need to start easy training NOW..... call me if you want some help (Ian 082 469 4398)
