History and Time trials

This multicultural and multilingual club has a rich history of running in the Vaal, from its own Time Trials and Club runs to the organizing of one of South Africa's oldest marathons, the Cape Gate Vaal Marathon

Regardless of your running ability, you are welcome to join us for time trials on Tuesday evenings and club runs on Saturday mornings, which are through Three Rivers. Laughs and smiles go hand in hand with the tough training at these events, but encouraging, “Keep it up” or “Well done”, is never too far away. As we all know, it’s much easier to run with someone, than to run alone.¬†

Vaal Athletic Club is affiliated to Athletics South Africa (ASA) and Athletics Vaal Triangle (AVT) and conforms to the regulations of those bodies.
