ABOUT WALLY HAYWARD

Wally Hayward's exceptional running career spanned six decades, and although he represented South Africa at the Olympic Games and set numerous ultra-distance world records, he is best remembered for his remarkable achievements in the Comrades Marathon, which he won five times and completed successfully at the ages of 79 and 80. Probably the most remarkable achievement of the great Wally Hayward was finishing the 1988 Comrades Marathon, just before his 80th birthday! Wally stunned the world by finishing in a time of 9:44:15 - beating more than half the field! In 1989, just a few weeks short of his 81st birthday, he completed his last Comrades just before the cut-off, in 10:58:03, in front of a rapturous crowd to become the oldest finisher in Comrades history. He died on 28 April 2006, at the age of 97, a couple of days before the Wally Hayward Marathon that year, held, as always, on Workers’ Day public holiday, on 1 May.
