Loadshedding: Schedule for Alberton and Thokoza

Stage 2: According to schedule 12:30 – 15:30

Alberton North




Strong possibility that Alberton won’t be affected by Loadshedding today due to the large area outage affecting Thokoza. This is offsetting the required load to be shed for this area.

Randhart resident runs the Comrades

Randhart resident runs the Comrades in the streets of Alberton

Anneke Blignaut shares her story of why she ran the Comrades in the streets of Alberton

From left to right, Elmarie Fourie, Anneke Blignaut and Ruth Shultz

“I knew from the beginning that this was a personal journey. A journey of self discovery. ‘You meet a new you when you get to 70km”

“This year’s Comrades slogan is Dare to Dream. I only started running in May 2019 and never dreamed of running the Comrades. In September 2019, Elmarie Fourie and I decided that we would run the Comrades 2 years later in 2021. In October when the entries opened I felt the urge to enter for the Comrades 2020.
I knew from the beginning that this was a personal journey. A journey of self discovery. Bruce Fordyce said, ‘You meet a new you when you get to 70km’. So true! When the Comrades was cancelled due to COVID-19 I accepted it, but when the Virtual Race entries opened, I just knew I had to go all the way. I Dared to Dream. I believed I could finish the ultimate human race.
I thought it would just be my husband and myself, but it quickly grew into a community event with friends and family sharing the pain and glory of every one of the 90 kilometers. We prayed on the route, we just worshipped God and thanked Him for grace, health and the strength to push through.
Everyone ran further than what they entered for. Everyone became a champion! We all said goodbye after 12hours of support, running, cycling and tears knowing that we are all part of something far greater and a story that will last for a lifetime.”
