You're never too old...
Cecily Rootenberg joined RWFL in 1990 at the ripe young age of 65, as she needed to keep her fitness levels up when she could no longer play golf. Cecily showed tremendous walking potential and completed  her first Johannesburg half marathon at age 66 in the very good time of 2h52m.

Since then Cecily has gone on to do 16 Cape Town Big walks, including winning multiple gold medals in her age category in the 50km event. She has also completed 2 Capital to Coast Comrades walks, once in the company of Comrades King Bruce Fordyce who hailed her as an amazing woman .

Cecily has competed in the SA National walking championships 4 times, representing Central Gauteng. In the 2014 National Championship Cecily, now at age 89, completed the 10km walk in 93 minutes, a truly remarkable performance from a remarkable woman!  Well done Cecily, RWFL salutes you!
