The National Business Challenge Relay offers you a national sporting chance

By entering a team in one or more events, you will not only be promoting health and physical fitness, but a sense of pride and achievement in your organisation.

The Business Challenge Relay provides a relaxing and social environment in which organisations can compete outside the strenuous business environment through multiple entries in the event. The events are open to full-time employees of corporations, government departments, private companies or any other employment organisation where people work together. Each company may enter an unlimited number of teams and everyone is encouraged to participate.

Teamwork has become the central focus in all successful business environments. Without the commitment to achieve a mutual goal and objective, even the most dynamic of environments will stagnate. This event is organised to promote company involvement and teamwork in the best spirit of competition. All participants are encouraged to wear their company t-shirt and rally non-competing coworkers to the race site to cheer their team to victory.

Start and Finish

The relay will start and finish at Rietondale park, Soutpansberg Road, Rietondale, Pretoria

Getting started

THE NOVICE'S GUIDE TO GREATNESS

A guide to getting you on the road

By Werner Theron

So you were quite flattered noticing those admiring looks from the new wellness officer at work, weren't you? That is until those dreaded words: "You can do with losing a few kilos. Mr Wilson," came from the very sweet lips of the same person who put you through every conceivable medieval torture instrument available on the gym floor.

"Mighty be a good idea to take up running to shed some of the excess weight," she said. "And whilst you're at it, why not enter the Medihelp Business Challenge Relay coming up?"

What the heck, you can do it, you think. Besides, Edward from Accounting has entered his entire team. No way are those been counters from upstairs going to show Marketing a clean paid of heels, you think. And definitely not after the last budget meeting!

Check it out

Now be sensible. Remember, you're not 18 anymore. Have the old ticker checked by you-know-who; the same guy who tells you to eat less red meat, drink less beer. and get more exercise...

Okay, so you have made it over the first hurdle! This was the easy part. The next step is to get you kitted out. You need good quality running shoes and the accompanying attire, and no. your old, beer-builds-better-bodies T-shirt does not fit the part.

Expand your vocabulary

Off to a special sport shop you go. Here you find those godlike bodies disguised as salespeople, eager to welcome you to the fitness fray.

Quite an educational experience this turns out to be. You will be let in on the secrets of pronation. stability, neutral (no, not the kind you do not want to be in trying Co get away from the irritating Bee-Em at the traffic light) and many other terms not known to you (up to now).

Check out your budget account

So what, if you have blown half your savings on the next Bokke test in Ireland. This is worth it. believe me. Now is the time to find our what this "getting in at sunrise" your wife was going on about after your son's last rave was all about.

Some call it the best time of the day. And don't despair, you'll soon come to appreciate the beauty of seeing the sun rise as you start pounding the pavement almost daily.

Getting into gear

To help you make your preparation an absolute walk in the park we have compiled a programme that will guarantee you a smooth ride (er...run) on the day of the relay.

Week one is spent preparing the body for what lies ahead.

Weeks two to six are a combination of walking and running so that by week seven, as the final mental and physical preparation for the big day commences, you will be in tip-toe condition. For that is when you are "tapering down." Remember your glossary of running terminology from your last visit to the sports shop?

A six-week training programme for the Business Challenge Relay series

The following programme was compiled by Don Oliver, author of a book on Comrades novice runners training and convener of the Comrades Ponef Meetings for 23 years. He has run 19 Comrades Marathons.

NOTES

Walking

Walking, as described here, is not exactly the same as the action performed when Caking the kids to the local mall. We are talking effort here. Speed up the pace and move the arms accordingly.

Jogging

Remember rugby practice in high school? That involved jogging a few laps around the field before preparing to knock the living daylights out of the first team's new fly half (the one eyeing your sweetheart).

We are not quite running yet. Just getting those testosterone levels up.

Running

The real thing at last! Running comfortably is the secret here. If you run out of breath giving your running partner the full account of your last meeting with Edward the beanie, you are running too fast.

Walk/Run

This action involves one of the two above. Do make sure that you run more than you walk, though.You don't want Edward to come flying past you on the day, do you?

Ready to roar

By this time your confidence should have exponentially grown in accordance with your time spent on the road. Edward and his team do not even feature any more. You are prepared go out there and enjoy!

Where to from now?

Been there, done that, got the T-shirt. Now is the time to stretch the new you to new limits.

Check out the many races presented in your neighborhood and join thousands of others eating up the tar over weekends.

Who knows what could happen next?
