Dear Club Member

We have had an exciting first 4 months so far for 2017. Our Elite Athletes are performing well leading up to Two Oceans and Comrades Marathons and we are 4 Days away form Two Oceans Marathon. Good luck to each and every Athlete that will be participating and we will be at the finish line waiting for your at our Marquee.


Please collect your Two Oceans Shirts at EXPO at the Future Life stand alternatively it will be available at our Marquee. You will receive your lanyard with food and drink vouchers at the finish line after your race to come and enjoy a SPUR Burger and drinks. We will also have a Biogen table, FutureLife Smoothies and massages on hand to relax your tired muscles. The Marquee will be situated on the finish stretch before the bridge. If you did not receive your vouchers at the finish line, I will be there to assist in giving you a voucher.

Good luck to all athletes.
