Engel and Völkers Durbanville & Surrounds had the privilege of being part of the 99′er Cycle race staged at the Durbanville Race Course on Saturday the 7th February 2015. The race is the third largest cycle race held in the Cape Town area and attracted more than 4600 entries.
The 99er started as a fund raising event for one of the local Durbanville schools, El Shaddai Christian School, in 1999. The inaugural event was 99km long, hence the name 99′er. The 2015 event was the 17th year the event was held and included various distances for road cycling as well as a mountain bike event. The 108km road race is also an Official Premier Seeding event for the Cape Town Cycle tour, previously known as the “Argus”. Over 350 volunteers from parents at the school, teachers, students and alumni were involved to make the day a truly memorable one.
E&V Durbanville & Surrounds were involved in the prize giving ceremony for all race winners and also had the privilege of staging and sponsoring the first ever kiddies fun ride over a distance of 3km. It was a huge success and a fun day out for the family and our pleasure to add value to the day with the inclusion of the kiddies race. The fun ride attracted close on 80 entries and was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
We would like to congratulate our 8 year old winner Marné Arlow. We hope you enjoy your prize!
Furthermore we would like to also congratulate the winner of the lucky prize draw Mr Johann Coetzee, who will receive a R5,000 gift voucher from SA Vloerweelde. Thank you very much for your participation on the day and we hope to see you there next year!
