The Woermann Brock (WB) Coast Classic featured the 17km run, 6km fun run as well as the 17km, 45km and 75km mountain bike races in a challenging course through the Dorob National Park.

Erich Goeieman won the men’s 17km run. He finished in a time of 53:55 a few minutes ahead of Kephas Gebbard who was second with a time of 55:33. Nesley Gawaseb clocked 1:00:18 and finished third.

“I am very happy with what I’ve achieved so far. I put in a lot of hard work. I am looking forward be here again next year and would like to improve my time. It’s a very tough course,” said Goeieman.

The women’s 17km run was won by Dunja Pritzen in a time of 1:09:39. She finished ahead of Elize Steyl (1:18:21) and Lydia Thiel (1:19:09) who were second and third respectively.

“It was a good experience and a very demanding trail. It was tough but it was great. I am going to do the Hangana Hake 42km marathon next weekend so we’ll see how that will go. Well done to Woermann Brock for organizing this, you really did a great job,” said Pritzen after her victory.
