On behalf of myself and Annette, and also the Club Committee I wish all our club members a relaxing, peaceful, restful and most blessed holiday time and Christmas season. This is especially the month of giving, and also of receiving. Apart from gifts and presents, let’s also give freely our love, our time, friendship, patience, kindness and understanding.    At the same time, also be prepared, accepting and thankful to receive the same from others who likewise want to also give to you. And above all, let us make time, enough time, to reflect what
Christmas is all about, the biggest gift of all, Jesus our Saviour,
our eternal gift. And although it’s still a few weeks to go, we also
wish unto you a wonderful and a most special new year when we run into 2019.     If you travel, be safe, be alert and be careful. When you celebrate and enjoy, do so in moderation, respect and responsibility.    And REMEMBER that if you don’t train at least twice a week during December, you’ll have to triple up your training in the new year, just to get back into shape.

Aandag : Strand Atletiekklub komitee en lede    
Waardering vir hulp tydens Wynland wedlope – 2018  
Goeiedag Max en SAK   Ek wil graag namens ons Wynland wedloopkomitee en Helderberg Harriers ons opregte waardering en dank uitspreek teenoor Strand Atletiekklub vir jule hulp met verskeie aspekte tydens die pas afgelope suksesvolle Wynland marathon- en halfmarathon .     Spesiale dank aan almal wat gehelp het om te marshal asook die gebruik van SAK se “droppers”.  Dit bly ons wens dat naburige klubs deurlopend mekaar sal help met en tydens die organisasie van ons wedlope, aangesien daar meer en meer druk op klubs en hul hulpbronne na vore kom.  Die gebrek aan hande om te help, raak ‘n groter-wordende problem… Helderberg Harriers sien uit daarna om, soos in die verlede, weer eens soortgelyke hulp aan Strand Atletiekklub aan te bied. Nogmaals dankie !   Hardloopgroete Leon Erwee 083 383 1751 (nms Wynland Wedloopkomitee).

Hi Almal,

Ek, (Christo Müller) en Jaco Klopper, wat ook al meer as 30 jaar hardloop, het na jare se oorweging besluit om n boek saam te stel oor stories in n marathon atleet se loopbaan. Hiermee versoek ons atlete asook afgetrede atlete, om vir ons julle onvergeetlike oomblikke met ons te deel vir die boek. Enige stories en fotos is welkom. Ons wil nie net die lesers se lagspiere toets nie, maar ook n inspirerende, motiverende en geestelike beeld oordra. Baie mense verstaan nie hoekom ons so hol nie en wat jaag ons nie☺. Deel sommer met ons hoekom jy hardloop, wat maak dit so lekker? Rig jou storie wat in afrikaans of engels kan wees na of gevolg met jou naam en dorp. Ons wil darem die stories koppel aan jou naam tensy jy anoniem wil bly, laat weet ons net. Ons sal almal wat stories instuur op hoogte hou van die vordering. Die boek sal in afrikaans en engels beskikbaar wees.

I, (Christo Müller) and Jaco Klopper, who have been running for over 30 years, decided after years to write a book about stories in a marathon’s athlete’s career. We ask athletes as well as retired athletes to share their unforgettable moments with us for the book. Any stories and photos are welcome. We do not only want to test the reader’s stomach muscles, but also convey an inspirational, motivational and spiritual image. Many people do not understand why we run and what are we chasing. Therefore, share with us why you’re running, what makes it so much fun? Email your story in Afrikaans or English to or followed by your name and town. We want to connect the stories to your name unless you want to stay anonymous, just let us know. We will keep you in the loop of the progress. The book will be published in English and Afrikaans.

Running greetings

Christo and Jaco


Charity Hat Walk

Strand Athletic Club was privileged to receive a very generous donation from the proceeds of the Charity Hat Walk held on 25th November. 

On the photo are Armand Botes, Western Cape Manager and Stephen Brooks, the CEO and founder of Balwin Properties, together with Frans Kotze who received the cheque on behalf of SAC. We are very excited about this big-hearted donation which will help our less privileged runners
