We are a running club in Cape Town but walkers are also welcome, so come and walk with us! Southern Striders Walkers meet on a Tuesday and a Thursday at 18h00 at the Rondebosch Golf Club in Mowbray for a walk. 

Walkers include competitive walkers and social walkers. They get together to enjoy the company and safety of a walking group. The group includes a speed walk for the more competitive walkers, and an easier paced walk for new and beginner walkers or for those wanting a brisk, but more relaxed walk. Our competitive walkers often participate in races on weekends and can be seen striding out there at an impressive pace. Alternatively walkers arrange to meet for a walk on weekends.

Road Running

Southern Striders Athletic Club road runner members range from very strong ultra-distance runners to slower runners who run to stay fit. There is a space for everyone to achieve their personal running goals.

Come and join our running club in Cape Town. We meet on a Tuesday and Thursday at 18h00 at the Rondebosch Golf Course for training runs. We break into different pace and distance groups, if necessary, to ensure that everyone can enjoy their run (or walk). Training runs are varied with speed workouts and hill repeats during the peak race season (for those interested), and we have a time trial the last Thursday of every month. 

Weekend runs are more ad-hoc. Road runners participate in races over weekends, or alternatively they co-ordinate and get together for training runs based on their specific training goals or training programmes, or just to run to stay to fit and enjoy a cup of coffee afterwards. Whichever option you choose, you will be assured of good running company, support and a beautiful running route.

Trail Running      

We have a very active Trail Running group. This group meets on Sundays to run along the exquisite mountain trails of Cape Town. Running with Southern Striders provides the opportunity to run within the safety of a group and with very experienced trail runners. It also provides opportunity to train for specific trail running events.
