Magnolian of the month

The Magnolia Committee decided to announce a Magnolian of the Month in order to introduce all the movers and shakers to the club, based on any form of service/contribution or achievement.

For the month of April we decided to award this to Stephan Koch.
Stephan improved his running over the last year and achieved outstanding results in distances from 10km to 32km. He will be toeing the line for his first marathon on May 1st at the Wally Hayward race. Magnolia wish him the best of luck and a perfect day.

  •  8 April Modern Athlete Irene Ultra &21km

Cold drinks and snacks are provided by the club.
PLEASE NOTE: Beer/ciders will be available at no cost at races with a distance of 32km and more, otherwise beer will be sold for R12 and ciders for R15

Race Pace coaching

Speed work is the core of what drives improvement in our running. So Magnolia has joined forces with Clinton Hunter from RacePace Coaching to provide group coaching sessions to all Magnolia members who are interested in improving their running in 2018.
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.

When: Wednesdays
Where: Harlequins Cricket Field (Where the Sunrise monster race finishes)
Time: 16:30/17:00/17:30 ( You can slot in with any group)
