ABOUT US

Mission

Overkruin Atletiekklub was established 17 years ago by a small group of runners who identified a need for structuring their running activities and having a home base.  According to the Constitution of the Club it is “our mission to develop the sport of road running, cross country and walking while promoting the achievements of the club as well as individual members.

 We pride ourselves in:

  • the positive spirit in which we participate
  • providing a basic structure in which members can improve and maintain desired levels of health and fitness
  • providing a friendly, accommodating atmosphere for members
  • promoting healthy social relationships through social events
  • a non-discriminatory approach to all activities taking place under the club’s control.”

The Club mainly focuses on road running and encourages mass participation in road races on weekends. Participation in league races is a priority.
