Grassy Park father and son Zakareeya and Sharief Pandey partnered for the Old Mutual Two Oceans marathon on Saturday April 20. Zakareeya managed to finish within the cut-off time. His medal will be posted as the event organiser ran out of medals. However, Sharief had stomach issues and severe cramps from the 16km mark. He said: “I thank God that I could complete the race but did not make cut off. Will try again next year God willing. My son and I stayed together for the first 18km after which I asked him to go on his own. He was reluctant as we were planning to finish together. All in all it was a good event to be part of. Great atmosphere. Good weather.”
