Running Club

Run Zone West Rand Athletics Club

The Cool Runners running club was started as a new, vibrant, funky running club founded by a group of runners with a love of running and the motivation to feel better about themselves. Between them, major races such as the Comrades and Two Oceans Ultra Marathons have been achieved.

At the end of 2019, Cool Runners became Run Zone West Rand, and was incorporated into Run Zone Athletics Club, one of the largest athletics clubs in the country, as a self administered satellite club, sharing all the benefits of the mother club, such as gazebos and refreshments at most races,  

Although we have a fantastic, knowledgeable group of runners who are always keen to help out we pride ourselves in targeting the ‘newbies’ with a motto ‘’we will never leave you behind”. 

Anyone keen to start running in a club environment and grow from the first 4km Time trial, to a full 42.2km Marathon, and beyond should join us today! 

Walkers are also more than welcome with open arms. Time trials are Tuesdays 5.30pm – opposite Noordheuwel Country club (traffic reasons). There is a 4km and 8km option which we’ve made as safe as possible, we do however recommend minors under 16 run with an adult. Times are seasonal. 

We try and attract young blood, so we have numerous social time trials and make contact with schools and challenge them every now again with the cheeky saying ‘Records are made to be broken’. We love to hand out spot prizes such as fastest runner, most time trails attended etc. 

On Saturdays and Sundays, we have a longer training club run, targeted at the more advanced runner, although shorter run/walks are available. There are also early morning weekday runs. 

The facility has plenty of safe parking and a spectacular view over Hillsnacks. Come feel the “rustig” vibe of Run Zone West Rand and you won’t look back-EVER!!! Find us on facebook!!!
