For races longer than 21km where alcoholic beverages were served at no cost in the past this arrangement will be replaced by a new arrangement with immediate effect. In future our members will have to pay a basic cost of R 10 per alcoholic beverage consumed at raced exceeding 21km’s.
The arrangement for races of 21km or less where members paid market related prices for alcoholic drinks is not affected by the new arrangement. This new arrangement is purely introduced as a cost saving measure. All other refreshments and soft drinks at our club tents will continue to be available at no cost to our members visiting our tent.

These coaching sessions are for old, young, slow and fast.
The professional coaching sessions will be paid for by the club, so it will be free of charge to our members.
