Randburg Harriers has had an amazing year and looks forward to giving back to its loyal members. The AGM was held on 24 October 2018 and we are excited about the NEW COMMITTEE who will be steering some new initiatives for the club.
First things first SECURITY has been an issue in the entire Randburg Sports Complex and we have cautioned our runners to be alert. But we are taking it further to ensure your protection….
Cameras have been installed in strategic locations at the clubhouse so that we are aware of what is going on and so that criminals know we are watching. It has also been agreed with the main club that a guard house will be installed at the entrance, which you will see has already been done. There will also be spikes and card access installed shortly. This demonstrates our commitment to your safety and enjoyment of the club’s facilities. We want you to feel safe and to have fun when you visit us. Please just bear with us while we are busy with the renovations.
Next up is our year end DINNER DANCE to be held on 9 November 2018 at Randpark Golf Club. It is bound to be a glitzy affair and lots of fun as we dress up smartly and enjoy the evening together. Remember to book by emailing Michelle on secretary@randburgharriers.co.za or sms 079 844 7156. The cost is R175 per head – the rest of the food & entertainment costs will be covered by the club.
Get your drinking hats on for the next event on our calendar, the ANNUAL GROG JOG which will be held on Wednesday, 5 December 2018. This is a traditional event and the distance can be completed by runners of any athletic ability especially with the help of a little drink or two along the way. More details of the route and costs will be circulated soon but SAVE THE DATE for an awesome evening of pub crawling.
THROUGHOUT DECEMBER 2018, Randburg Harriers will continue to provide assisted club runs. We all know that festive eating, drinking and holidays can result in that unfit feeling in the New Year so justify your actions by ensuring you run with us. NOTHING WILL TASTE AS GOOD AS FEELING FIT FEELS IN 2019. Look out for dates, routes and distances on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/RandburgHarriers/?ref=bookmarks or on our weekly newsletter and if you have any family or friends visiting in the holidays, bring them along too.
We are pleased to announce that there will be NO INCREASE in your membership fees for 2019!!! Randburg Harriers has recovered well from its financial challenges of the past and remains a financially sustainable running club. We will be reinvesting in our athletes who have been loyal members and welcome new members to our running family.

The New Year will also bring a new modernised design for our CLUB VESTS. We love our Rundays are Fundays smiley logo but want to concentrate on a more comfortable fit and durable material. SO WATCH THIS SPACE….we are going to be running in style in 2019.
You spoke and we listened – we will be bringing back the old LONG CLUB RUNS mapped out for you to enjoy. The loop concept has worked for us but feedback from you is that the out and back is preferred by some members. We will plan the long club runs once a month to start with and if these are well attended, we plan to provide them on a more regular basis. Now there will be no reason for you not to join us on the weekend for a trot.
Our annual VALENTINES NITE RACE will also be hotting up as we have secured sponsorship from HOT 91.9 FM. What an event it is going to be!! Diarise now – 15 February 2019 – so that you don’t miss out on seeing some famous DJ’s run past whilst you are marshaling….hint, hint, we will need your help to make it a successful event.
During 2018, the club revamped the GENTS CHANGE ROOMS. With Randburg Harriers, change is inevitable and next up is renovations to the LADIES CHANGE ROOMS which we hope will be complete by February 2018. New facilities, because you deserve them after a workout.
Whilst we are already working hard on making some improvements to your club, we want to make sure that we meet your needs and consider your suggestions on how to make things EVEN BETTER in 2019 so If you have any suggestions, comments, compliments or complaints, please email secretary@randburgharriers.co.za – we are only as strong as our members and we can only make things better if you communicate with us.
Yours in Running
Randburg Harriers
