Happy_birthdayPlease note that we do not currently have an updated list with the names of all new members.  We should be able to continue with the birthday wishes in March.

RACE REPORTS

Please send us a short race report if you have done a race that you would like to share with members.

CLUB TRAILER AND GAZEBO

I think most of you will agree that the club trailer and gazebo have become an integral part of the social interaction of our club members.  We may not always appreciate the effort that goes into preparing the trailer, making sure that it is stocked with coffee, tea etc for the next race and taking the trailer to races.  We would therefore like to thank Fanie for assisting us.  We really appreciate your effort in this regard.  Thanks, Fanie!

CLUB CLOTHING

We have received the new stock of running vests and social t-shirts.  Please contact Ronell (072 431 4183) should you need her assistance.  The prices for all items are on our website.  Thank you, Ronell!

CLUB BRAAI

You are invited to join us this coming Wednesday (7 Feb) for our first club braai for 2018 after time trial.  We will provide:  fire, pap, sous, salads, coffee and tea.  Bring your own cutlery, crockery, meat and drinks.    Gretha, our guest speaker will tell us more about BOM injections.  Bring your family and friends to share the evening!!!

TIME TRIALS

Members as well as visiting runners are welcome to meet on Wednesdays at 17:30 at the Club for a 5km or 8km time trial.

Happy running!

Jeanne
