ASA Details

ALL MAGNOLIA MEMBERS are required to go check their details on the ASA website under the following link

We still have numerous Magnolia members who have not registered or arranged their transfers from other clubs. We created profiles for some of those members who have not done so. These members can either use their name or ID number as password to log in.

Please help us smooth out the registration process for 2017 by making sure all your details are correct and that you are in fact registered.

Tuesday club braai

Every first Tuesday of the month Magnolia hosts a very informal social club braai. You are welcome to bring your meat, snacks, friends and the rest of the family for a braai. We provide the fires. Everyone is welcome!!
Our next braai is on 10 January 2017!!!
Time 18:00
Cash bar available
Bring your own cutlery.

Help at McCarthy Race

The 34th Magnolia McCarthyToyota Race is on the 4th of February 2016
We urge Magnolia members not to take part in the race and to assist on the day as we need lots of hands and help wherever possible.
This is the one opportunity where members get the chance to give back to the club.

Those members helping out would be put into a draw for a pair of running shoes.

Please send an email if you are willing to assist

Race Pace coaching

Speed work is the core of what drives improvement in our running. So Magnolia will be joining forces with Clinton Hunter from RacePace Coaching to provide group coaching sessions to all Magnolia members who are interested in improving their running in 2017.
The professional coaching sessions will be paid for by the club, so it will be free of charge to our members.
These sessions will take place on Wednesdays from 4:30pm to 6:30pm. More info to follow when the first date of coaching will be and where it will take place.
These sessions will start in January 2017 (start date to be finalised) and finish at the end of May 2017, and depending on the turnout will be reassessed in April 2017.

For further information and instruction on how to join read about Race Pace coaching on our website.
