Staff and students from the College of Agriculture, Engineering and Science braved the wet and misty weather to take part in the first College Fun Run at Ukulinga Research Farm on Fri, 31 September 2012. The Fun Run was very much a part of the Faculty of Science and Agriculture’s tradition for years; this is the first year that the entire College has participated.
Teams from the various Schools and Offices made superlative efforts to dress according to their chosen themes. Some of the more colourful displays included the College Office Witches and Wizards, the bright green School of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science and the Cowboys and Indians from the School of Life Sciences.
Prizes were awarded for the best dressed team, the best team spirit. The first man and woman, Thulane Singwane and Wendy Janssens, to complete the race were also awarded prizes, with a consolation prize going to the last team to arrive.
After working up an appetite, members of the College community socialized over an early lunch at Ukulinga’s main hall.
