On Tuesday, 3 March 2020, Eunice held its second annual Green Mile running event. This event offers local runners an excellent opportunity to test themselves against the rest of the Bloemfontein running community. This year there were 211 runners competing, which is almost double the number of runners that entered in 2019. Runners of all ages can compete in the event with categories from u/9 to an open category for senior runners. This year the open categories were won by two Olympic athletes, Rynhardt van Rensburg (in a time of 4 minutes 17 seconds) and Tsepang Sello (in a time of 5 minutes 11 seconds). Eunice runners were on almost all the ladies’ podiums, with 4 first place finishes. The event was a great success and with growing support from the community one can only expect more entries and tougher competition next year.
