Brendon Bals Lowson, Athlete Profile

A sparkling addition to Craig Fry’s stable of phenomenal athletes is Brendon (From the JHB Office), who describes himself, in his own words:


In the next 5 years I hope to take my 10km more seriously and stop talking so much on the road and get sub 40min/10km before I’m 28. I don’t like 10km and never think too much of them but running my 3rd marathon at Vaal and getting 3hr42min I believe sub 3 by the time in 28 and sub 2hr50min by the time I’m 30 is a reasonable goal and well in my potential.

I want to focus on longer distances from 21km and really specialize in 42’s I honestly think South African’s have the body but need to be groomed into such a hard distance when fatigue plays a huge part in that as well as endurance, plenty of people I have spoken to can’t understand how I can’t get a sub 40min/10k yet I can achieve sub 100/21km?

I want to groom myself for a marathon distance and believe with my height at 1m66 and weight at 61kg’s I am in the perfect position to be moulded into the runner I know I can be I just need the chance and like all young men I do suffer from laziness but it’s time that is slipping away and by the time I’m 35 and coming into 2hr30min marathons I know comrades will be my playground and by the time I’m 30 I would love a top 200 position in my first comrades at 30 overall.

Now this is no ordinary fellow – Brendon breathes, eats and sleeps running, and has an ear, a helping hand, helpful advice to anyone who needs it.  A gem!  Which is why he is generally known as the “Joh’burg Branch of Craigsathletes”.

And he runs!  A lot!  He will achieve his ambitions, through sheer determination, strength of character and perseverance.  We’re watching you!
