ATHLETICSABOUT US

The Athletics Club is over forty years old and is best known for holding its Annual Road Race on the second weekend of August, attracts in access of 5000 runners a year.  While the majority of our members participate in road running, our membership can also be used for track & field and cross country events.

It is one of the greatest honors to represent the Club at the 90km Comrades Marathon or the 56km Two Oceans Marathon.  It is astounding how people with little apparent natural athletic ability, are able to get fit and finish these races through sheer determination.

Old Eds AC is a small to medium sized running club where we encourage everyone to get to know each other.  It is not uncommon for members to stay on for over a decade.

The road running community is built on friendship between the Clubs and Old Eds has long-standing relationships with Varsity Kudus, Wanderers, Pirates, Rockies, and Morningside amongst others.  Clubs will step in to help when other clubs need assistance.

  • Club Time Trial: 17h45 on Wednesdays.  5k and 8k distances
