Rest In Peace and Recover Well - Thoughts for Running Friends

It's been such a sad week and the running world is still reeling after the Boston blasts. Unfortunately that was not the only very sad news from last weekend.

Here in Johannesburg four ladies of the Randmark Running Club in Randfontein were in a serious car accident on their way to the Slow Mag Marathon on Sunday morning.

Veronica Cronje, Beulah Botha, Stephanie Schneider and Ilona Meyer were all travelling together to run the marathon. Veronika and Beulah were seriously injured. Stephanie and Ilona both died in the accident.

Rest in peace dear runner friends. Condolences, prayers and thoughts go out to your family and friends. You will be missed.


Rest in peace Stephanie.


Rest in peace Ilona


Recover well Veronica


Recover well Beuhla

Please pray for these runners, their families and their friends.
