How to join

Come and meet us

Southern Striders Athletic Club is a small and informal running club in Rondebosch, Cape Town. We get together every Tuesday and Thursday at 18h00 at the Rondebosch Golf Club in Mowbray. If you are interested in running with us, just arrive a bit earlier so that we can meet and greet and complete a membership form if you like us and decide to join. The next step will be to make an EFT or cash payment to our Treasurer.

You can join as a social member if you want to run with the club but don’t want to participate in races, or you can join as a registered runner to participate in races.

How to become a registered runner

To become a registered runner, you will first need to join the club (you can’t have a Western Province Athletics license without belonging to a running club), and then register with Athletics South Africa:
The Western Province Athletics race number is purchased directly from Southern Striders and Southern Striders will verify your membership and race number on the ASA site.

If you are currently a member of a running club and wish to move to a new club, you would have to contact your current Club Administrator with a request to change your status to "Transfer" on the ASA website.
