Athletics September Update

Spring is in the air… finally! It has been so nice to see our numbers at Time Trial and Track increase as everyone emerges from their Winter Hibernation!

 

This month we are really wanting you to do a spring clean of all your old/unused/ unwanted running shoes. We will be donating all of our shoes to the Drop a Pair campaign. Please click on the attached link to know more about this wonderful initiative.  https://rosebankkillarneygazette.co.za/234214/donate-running-shoes-kids-need/

 

You will find the shoebox under the clock at Time Trial. Alternatively, drop your shoes off at reception with Attention Wanderers Athletics and we will be sure to collect them all.

 

Upcoming races?

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

 

Irene Spring 21km – 29 September

SPAR Woman’s 10km – 07 October

Soweto Marathon – 04 November

Sunday Club Runs

Back to Summer times! 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.

 

Weekly Time Trials

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 and Lorna Jane Activewear.

Donate any old/unused item by placing them in the box underneath the clock.

 

 

 

Track Tuesdays

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.
