This year has certainly started with a bang! We have had some amazing track sessions, some wet time trials and some fantastic weekend runs. It has been so great to see so many WAC faces at the gazebo after races and I’m sure we can all agree that the newly stocked cooler box, yummy food and extra chairs at the gazebo has been a great welcome to us all after we crawl across the finish line.

In order for us to make sure we are at the right races (with the most amount of WAC runners) please can you fill out this survey. That way we know where the gazebo is needed. Gazebo Duty is a shared duty amongst the club, so please volunteer your services.

In other news, WAC has purchased our very own arch which we will be using at our night runs and events across the year. The introduction of a social T-shirt has been a huge hit with many members asking where they can get theirs from. Please check our website for details.


Here are a few upcoming races for you to be aware of. Please get hold of Kent on 0846023172 should you be able to volunteer for gazebo duty.

race calendar


Consistency is key and if you are looking for a great way to run a steady 10 – 15 km these are the runs for you. The pace is easy and the company great, this is how Sunday runs are meant to be. These runs depart from the top parking lot @07:00.


Join us every Thursday evening @17:45 and challenge yourself by participating in either our 5km or 8km time trial starting from the bottom oval. The first Thursday of every month is our social night where you can join us for a bite to eat and a drink or two followed by a raffle where we have prizes sponsored by the Sweat Shop. Check out our new SELFIE FRAME!!!

Come down to the club and make sure you use the #wanderersathleticsclub to post your pics!

Next First Thursday is the 7th of March!


Track sessions start at 17:45 every Tuesday on the top oval, all levels of runners are welcome. Sessions followed are on the website and on the WAC app.
