Greetings fellow Love Runners!
As a Love Runner or potential Love Runner, we would like you to understand our objective as a club. We strive to be a positive influence on the running and walking community in Pretoria and by extension, Gauteng. Our motto – “GET FIT, GET FRIENDS, CHANGE THE WORLD” is a good summary of our intention as group of like-minded individuals with a common interest, that of running and race-walking!
We would like to impact the running and walking fraternity around us by serving the sport and those participating through the medium of running.
From casual runners who partake in the odd 10km to the more serious athletes who tackle South Africa’s various ultras we have a strong social focus, not only ensuring that we get to know one another but also that we keep contributing to the greater community. IN SHORT, WE ARE A CLUB WITH A DIFFERENCE.
As a club we are committed to not just seeing our members as numbers, but we would like to get to know you better. We want to motivate you to be a part of what we do and who we are.
Club members are expected to get involved on club activities. For example, volunteering for the Love Run, taking part in league races (doing a league race helps the club gain points and betters our overall position), volunteering for hosting the gazebo at the races or time trial and attending socials (we really want to see you there to put a “face” to a name).
Membership is by way of application, and subject to the approval of the Love Running Management Committee. Registration is only complete once you have physically collected your licence number from us at either on a Tuesday time trial or from our gazebo at official AGN races. Licenses must be collected within 4 weeks of registration or confirmation, failing which your 2023 membership application will be cancelled without a refund.
Club Fees for 2023 are R440 for existing members and R495 for new members.
Please make all payments directly into our bank account (reference LR followed by your name).
Please check that your record on the ASA website has been correctly set to Love Running AC. According to ASA regulation, we are required to hold proof of your registration. The proof of registration with ASA can be downloaded from their website (“Edit my details” tab and click on the “Member form” green button).
Kindly send us an email, with title “Membership 2023”, to firstname.lastname@example.org containing the proof of payment and your proof of registration with ASA.
Love Running meets every Tuesday and Thursday, at 17:30 from October to March and at 17:00 from April to September, at the Hatfield Christian School pavilion to enjoy a club run/walk together. We have 2 km, 4 km and 8 km routes to cater for a range of fitness levels.
Club vests are stocked at RUN-A-WAY SPORT who are now located at 302 Freesia Street, Lynnwood Ridge. THEY ARE SOLD FOR R 300 EACH ( please bring cash).
AGN league points system
AGN League Races are held approximately every four weeks (about 11 races a year) and participation in these races earns points for the club in the league system.
