Nedbank Running Vanderbijlpark

The club

The Nedbank Running Club Vanderbijlpark was founded in January 2002, first as Harmony Athletics Club, and five years ago formed part of the national Nedbank Running Clubs around the country. The club strives to attract walkers, jogger, runners and cyclist of all abilities to the sport of road running, cross country, cycling and multi sport. Our club is open to all people and provides an easily accessible platform to practice a healthy lifestyle. The club is in Vanderbijlpark (in the Vaal Triangle) and based at Kollege Park Primary School where we have our own clubhouse. (Photo: clubhouse in the background).
 

Time trials

Time trials for serious and occasional runners and fitness enthusiasts are run on a Tuesday evening and cover a 2, 4, 6 or 8km run. Attendance is good and the social vibe afterwards is energetic and pleasant, times are compared and the beers and drinks afterwards is much rewarding. This is the place to be to receive all the relevant information about happenings of the past week and forthcoming events. Every last Tuesday of the month we have a bring-and-braai. This is an excellent way to socialize with other running mates. Time trial results is posted every week on our web page – wwww.nedbankrunningclub.co.za (Photo: time trials – Christo, Coenie, Hennie & Antoinette showing real determination!).
 

Club committee

The club is divided into several sections, for example road running, cross country, social affairs, multi sport, etc., and each section is represented on the club committee. The committee is very active and our club is growing in numbers almost every week. The committee meets every firstTuesday after the time trial.
