The third annual Century Run which celebrates the camaraderie and fun of motorcycling of a bygone era took place this past weekend.

The idea behind the Century Run, which is open to the public, is that the combined age of the rider and bike has to be over 100, participants undertake a 100km and the event is held as close to the 100th day of the year as possible.

The run started at the Century Avenue e-parking.

In thanking Bianca Church of the Century City Property Owners' Association who helped organized the event, Jerry Day of the organizing committee had this to say:

"What can I say! Your enthusiasm and encouragement resulted in what many have hailed as our best Century Run to date, and my only regret was that you weren't present at the prize-giving to receive the hearty round of applause when your name was mentioned in the acknowledgements. You and your family's presence as our guests at the braai at next year's event is a must. In the final analysis, we had all the records broken, including the awarding of the first Platinum certificate (175 years), and a total of 67 machines participated, well up on last year's number.

"The venue proved to be extremely popular with everyone, and I think we should seriously consider the venue as a fixed point of departure in future. I was advised later that a vending machine was available at the bus terminus... another plus and something to bear in mind for the next run.

"All in all, a memorable occasion.

"Once again, and on behalf of everyone,many, many thanks."
