Road Running Newsletter – June 2016

Winter is NOT a reason to stay away!

Training with Coach Lee Chandler

It’s a fact that we are all feeling the chill and right now it’s easier to sit indoors and enjoy something warm. However, a few weeks down the road, and you will wish that you continued your training program because I’m sure that sometime in the not too distant future you have a running goal…

We once again want to appeal to all our new and seasoned members to attend the Tuesday and Thursday sessions at the PP Smit Fields. It is a great way of getting to know the club members as well as pushing yourself to better that 5k time!

Please familiarise yourself with the times of the June program, HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!!

Amazing work being done by a CMC runner!

Community Research Project…

A heart-felt thank you to all the generous CMSC members who have denoted ladies running shoes, running kit and socks to the Pretreatment CoOp.  This is a community research project that provides young women from Nyanga with counselling for issues related to trauma and substance abuse and self-care skills to help them cope better with their experiences.  Exercise is an important part of the programme and we are appealing to ladies to denote old shoes and kit to help these young women realise the psychological and physical benefits of being fit.  Through your kindness, we have collected 37 pairs of shoes and lots of clothing.  Our target is 65 pairs of shoes so we are more than half way!


Thanks Bronwyn Myers for the awesome work that you do!

A message from the Running Captain:

In order for us to be a successful running/multisport Club we

need active participating members who are happy and positive. I’ve had only good experiences in my short time with the club, and for us to be “happy runners” we need to share our awesome experiences and knowledge with others…

So my message is… A HUGE thank you to all the wonderful ambassadors of this club and may your running continue to grow from strength to strength…

Have a great running month!

Happy running.

Captain Kurt
