Interview + Pics @ShaunMeiklejohn on running #MandelaMarathon #UnitingInSport

Craig Fry caught up with Shaun and asked him a few questions about his inaugural running of Mandela Marathon in 2012 and his thoughts for those running in 2013 – he will be running also. Before I get to that, I would just like to quote some paragraphs from a few organisations / people who have had nothing but praise for this legend.
Says Stu Walker of iThemba Projects:
Just to mention – Shaun has been a massive ambassador for the club that we have setup in association with Mashaka School in Sweetwaters. He has kindly attended events such as this one, organised for the kids to join a running clinic and receive shoes and has tirelessly helped over the years to find funding for the work – so these kids have the opportunity to not only receive proper training but also participate in events – and achieve what would’ve never been possible otherwise. I’ve also attached a little report/thank you we put together for the end of this last school term – which hopefully outlines a bit.

I couldn’t think of anyone better than Shaun to do a write up on for the Mandela Marathon!
