Welcome to Vaal Athletics Club
The Vaal Athletics Club (VAC) is primarily a road running club, which was established in 1972. We are based in Three Rivers, Vereeniging, Gauteng, South Africa. VAC caters for cross-country, short distance, marathon and ultra-marathon road running, trial running, as well as those interested in cycling, walking and triathlons.
Getting the youth involved
We host events
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.
