Red Baron Tomato Trot & Cycle- Report Back
If you weren't involved somehow in the Red Baron Tomato Trot, you really missed seeing what this amazing Lilyfontein Family can achieve when it pulls together. A huge thank you to all the sponsors and to EVERYBODY that had a part to play in making the event such a success. We had over 2100 athletes take part, 400 of whom were cyclists. It took a huge effort to design and mark the 6 alternative routes, start and finish; to register each athlete and keep them safe and hydrated on their routes; to measure their times; to give each one a bag of Red Baron Tomatoes, a Twizza and a celebratory T-shirt as they finished, and to keep them and their supporters entertained, fed and watered for the afternoon. Thank you to you all.
