In less than 32 days, Central Gauteng Athletics will be hosting the first Cross Country league for the 2015 season at Delta Park. This first league event will take place on the 2 May 2015 at Delta Park in Randburg will be hosted by RAC.
The 2015 Cross Country season is expected to be a massive season with a number of exciting innovative ideas and the improvement on the bar code results system that the commission introduced last season.
With the cross country season set to commence in May 2015, CGA would like to appeal to clubs and athletes that will be taking part in the Cross Country Season 2015 to pre-register so that the athletes can be entered on the results system database as this is a precaution put in place to minimize the spelling and ages mistakes and will help in having an accurate database of athletes information for the 2015 season. Please take note that athletes who compete without a barcode will not appear on the results.
After a very successful 2014 cross country season with more than 12 000 athletes participated over 8 league events hosted in various areas we are hoping to continue on last year’s success. Delta Park is well known for being a tough course but enjoyed by many athletes. Hope to see you there.
Entries have officially opened for the Adrienne Hersch Challenge 2015.

Dave Coetzee, who has been the Club Coach at Randburg Harriers for well over a decade, resigned from the position at the end of 2014. The Club Committee would like to thank Dave for his dedicated service to our Club. Under Dave’s expert guidance, many of our athletes have improved their running and realized their goals.
Fortunately, the Club Committee has been able to find an able replacement for Dave.
Clinton Hunter, who is a professional athletics coach, will be taking up the position as our new Club Coach.
One change is that the track training sessions will now be held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, from 17h00 onwards (previously, they took place on Mondays and Wednesdays).
Clinton and his wife, Elsabé, have their own company, RacePace Professional Sports Coaching, and you can find out more about Clinton and his business on his websites: http://www.racepace.co.za and http://facebook.com/coachinghunters
Clinton is already coaching the Randburg Harriers RacePace Development Team, and so the transition to being our Club Coach will be an easy one. If you want to improve your running, please join in with Clinton’s track sessions, and chat to him about the additional services that he offers.
The annual Randburg Harriers Club Championship race schedule for 2015 has been finalised.
