Jonathan shared his experience in road running and & general knowledge in sport. He also commented on the current situation in rugby and cricket with the audience.
This is what Jonathan said about the race:
"What a wonderful experience. I must say, the best organised race I've ever attended. The people from De Rust have huge hearts, is always cheerful & helpful. The nature is amazing, year on year. It is a privilege to participate in the Meiringspoort race. The route is well planned, excellent water points. The teams along the route is uplifting when the legs are heavy. This year I felt the atmosphere along the route was even better than previous years. I will be coming next year, and the year after, again and again. And next year my fellow runner mates will join me. They need to experience Meiringspoort & De Rust. Well done to everyone involved."
For the organisers, it is a honour to have Jonathan Kaplan year on year. And they are looking forward to have in again in 2016.
