    Do you think Wayde van Niekerk is the best sprinter of all time?

    Public 400 Running Track in Johannesburg North

    Is there any 400m running track(grass or track) for public use in Randburg or surrounding areas. I do road running but want a perfectly flat area where I can measure my average pace and personal bests.

    Just curious as to who else is going, are you doing the ultra or half, how many have you done before and what time are you aiming for? For me it will be my 3rd half and I hope to have it done in under 1h49m.

Since then I only did 1000km on Nike Pegasus 29s and the last few times I ran in the 29s I had to stop because my of...
