Dear Club Member

With an amazing Two Oceans Marathon behind us we are looking forward to Comrades 2017 on Sunday 4 June 2017. Well done to all our Athletes with your achievements and we hope you had a great time in our Marquee at Two Oceans.

We had our Comrades Party Thursday 11 May, the food was great and thanks to all our Speakers, Nick Bester on your preparation before Comrades, what to expect and some vital tips. Dmitri Grishin, Winner of Comrades in 1998 & 1996 with his humorous talk on his experience and Kevin Frances on educating our Athletes on cramps, what to expect and how to avoid cramping. Lots of prizes were given out as well as a lucky draw, thanks to Futurelife and Biogen for all the goodies.


Good luck to our Comrades runners, we will be waiting for you at the finish line at Scottsville Race Course in Pietermaritsburg. Again our Marquee will have food, drinks, massaging and bean bags to relax on. Please note that your Family is welcome in the Marquee only when you have finished your race. We have 800 athletes that we are expecting so space is limited.

THANKS to all our Club Members that assisted at Wings For Life World Run, it was a smoothly run event again and an awesome experience.

Join us every Thursday at 17H30 at our Time Trials
