OLYMPIC TRIATHLETE EXCITED TO TAKE ON THE FNB CAPE TOWN 12 ONERUN
Cape Town, South Africa – South African Olympic Triathlete, Richard Murray is looking forward to lining up with some of the world’s best road runners at the inaugural FNB Cape Town 12 ONERUN on Sunday, 17 May 2015.
“I don’t usually find running races that I can take part in,” says PUMA athlete, Richard Murray.  “The FNB Cape Town 12 ONERUN will be something different for me, something fun.  I have heard that the race will be fast with a few top Kenyan and Ethiopian athletes running up front.  My goal will be to run a 2:50/km for 12km.  I will be really happy with a top 20 finish”.
 
Murray stunned the XTERRA community in 2013 when he claimed gold at his first ever XTERRA Race, the TOTALSPORTS XTERRA South African Championship presented by REHIDRAT® SPORT.  Murray will head to London at the end of May to take part in the ITU World Triathlon.
