2. Registration for 2016
New Magnolia registration procedure with effect from 4 April 2016
 
In an attempt to reduce the amount of cash we have to deal with during the registration period and to streamline our administrative processes, the club committee has decided to change the registration process from 4 April 2016.
 
Registrations will now be done as follows: 
  • New and existing members can download the application form from the website (http://magnoliaroadrunners.co.za/membership/), complete it and e-mail it to the registrar, Magda Grobler at magnoliaroadrunners@gmail.com, together with proof of payment – either EFT or bank deposit slip.
  • The application form should be marked to indicate where the member wishes to collect the license number:  the club house or Run-A-Way Sport.
  • The registrar will print these documents, complete the invoice book, and allocate a license number to the member, or obtain the reserved number requested by the member, if applicable.
  • Once or twice a week (depending on the time of year) the invoice together with the license number will be delivered to Run-A-Way Sport and the members will be notified when ready for collection from the shop.
  • Members who prefer to collect license numbers from the club house on a Tuesday can still do so.  The same process can be followed as mentioned above in order to reduce the waiting time, especially during the first month of registration.
  • Should members not have access to the Internet to download the membership form or to do an EFT payment, they are welcome to come to the club house on a Tuesday afternoon between 17:00 and 18:30 for registration. The current procedure for club registrations will not change.
  • Alternative arrangements will be made when members notify the registrar at least 3 days in advance.
We would like to invite members who are still uncertain about the new procedures to contact any of the committee members or reply to the club e-mail address with queries.

Current registration procedure 
  • Registrations can either be done at the clubhouse on Tuesdays from 17:30 to 18:30 OR at Run-A-Way Sport in Lynnwood (012 – 361 3733). 
  • No registration will be accepted without payment at the club or at the shop.  Should you prefer to pay via EFT (this is also our preferred method of receiving your payment), you have to provide a hard copy of proof of payment – no cell phone notifications on the day will be accepted.
  • To make an EFT payment, please use the banking details below:
          Standard Bank - Acc No 012 187 429
          Branch code 012 345
          Account name:  Magnolia Road Runners
         
NB: Please remember to use your name as reference when doing an EFT payment!!           
  • Please check the ASA website in case any of your personal details have changed and make the necessary changes.  The club administrator will then ensure that your license number is completed online once you have registered at the club or the shop.
  • Click here for procedures for Magnolia registration.
  • Click here for procedures for ASA registration.
  • 2016 ASA licensing form.
  • ASA Licensing Registration System for 2016
If you are considering changing clubs, the club administrator will have to transfer you on the ASA website. Please contact Magda Grobler, Melinda Smal or Noel Young to do the transfer for you.

6. Time trials and Tuesday runs
Tuesday runs
Every Tuesday there will be a running group at the club doing a training run. It could vary from hill training, stairs or Fort Klapperkop, depending on the crowd.
We will be starting at 17:00 from the club house. 
Anyone is welcome to join.

Thursday time trials
Magnolia will be joining forces with the Phobians time trial on Thursdays.
Due to the traffic around our club, time trials have become dangerous and thus Phobians have welcomed us to their time trials. There is a 4km and 8km route.
Their time trials work on a time chip system and the club will buy 20 chips for those members who are interested.
We encourage all members from Magnolia to join us on a Thursdays at 17:30 at Pretoria High School Old Boys Club (378 Queens Crecent, Lynnwood).

For the time trial calendar please visit the following link:

Cash bar available
8. Magnolia Long Run
MAGNOLIA will be hosting our 14th long run on 24 April 2016 through the shaded and quiet streets of Brooklyn and Groenkloof. To cater for all types of runners, either fast or slow and to provide the flexibility of allowing the runner to determine their own distance, the route is a 15 km loop that goes no further than 3 km from the club at any time.

Our Long Run offers you the following:
  • Determine your own distance from 15 to 45. The nature of the course will allow for incomplete laps.
  • Ideally placed 5 weeks before Comrades.
  • 5 fixed water points on route stocked with Coke, Powerade/Energade, water and snacks.
  • There will also be a sweep vehicle to identify the last runner or to provide aid to anybody wanting a lift back to the club.
  • Drop off warm or wet clothing at the clubhouse after the first lap.
  • Collect your own special drink from your car as the run progresses.
  • Run on quiet shaded streets with very little traffic.
  • No big hills and relatively flat.
  • Shower facilities will be available afterwards.
  • Parking and guards – but parking still at your own risk
  • Remember this is an organised long training run and is not a race. No medals will be issued.
Cost per person, as this is a non-sponsored event: Magnolia buys the drinks for all 5 points as well as snacks for 2 water points, arrange car guards, and gives an amount to each of the 3 helping clubs/sport store to cover some of their (snacks) costs of the day.

3 laps, 45 km – R 80
2 laps, 30 km – R 60
lap, 15 km – R 40 (Walkers welcome)


Start 6:00 from the Magnolia Clubhouse, c/o Middel & Dey streets, the white building next to Mimmos/ Crawdaddies/Shell Petrol garage. 2 Blocks from the Brooklyn Circle/Shopping Centre. GPS co-ordinates: S25 46.321 E28 13.816
