The Thursday night Randburg Harriers Time Trial has been bitten by the Halloween bug.
Inspired by a monthly theme time trial the committee voted at last minute to host a Halloween Time Trial on 30 October 2014, just in time for Halloween.
Witch for the evening; Val Brentano; ditched her broomstick in favor of a basket loaded with goody bags with yummy candy, and as all good witches do, handed it out to kids and those young at heart. (Candy generously donated by Pick ‘n Pay Brightwater Commons and Brightwater Commons Centre Management).
Thank you to those who formed part of our inaugural theme night and made it that much more memorable.
Stay tuned for details of our next theme time trial, happening 27 November – Make sure you don’t miss out!

"Does the snooze button get the better of you in the mornings? Don't have time to get to the gym in the evenings?
Your state of mind determines your success in life. And most successful people attribute their achievements to a healthy body, lifestyle and positive mind set.
As an athlete myself, I understand what it means to deal with the discipline, focus and motivation to achieve your health and fitness goals, irrespective of how big or small they may seem.
I also understand the challenges that come with training, fatigue, balancing work/life, nutrition, supplements, competing and performance let alone trying to balance training schedules with family and work, or when injuries prevail. As a Life Coach I can help you with any of these areas you may be struggling with."
This a promoted advertisement, not a Club service.
Other athletes can continue to be coached by Randburg Harriers' resident coach, Dave Coetzee, on Monday and Wednesday evenings, and Saturday mornings.
Matthew Putter from Soundcom, a frequent runner of our Time Trial, has kindly donated a portable public address system to the club to save Michelle lugging out the enormous old speaker system we previously used. The unit consists of a cordless light weight speaker and microphone. It works fantastically well.
Thank you Matthew and Soundcom!

Randburg Harriers is supporting an ambitious project that aims to send one of its talented young athletes to the Lornah Kiplagat High Altitude Training Centre in Iten, Kenya for a month.We need your support.
This exciting project has been initiated by two of our members, Allan and Tracy Eccles. The aim is to raise sufficient funds to send one of our young, talented members to spend at least a month undergoing training at the prestigious High Altitude Training Centre in Iten, Kenya. Innocent is the son of our well-known and long-standing member, Reform Ndlovu. Allan and Tracy believe that Innocent has the talent to race internationally, which is why they have launched this project. The Randburg Harriers Club Committee enthusiastically supports this initiative.
Randburg Harriers welcomes athletes of all abilities. Whether you are just starting or are an experienced athlete, we would love to have you as a member.
