Time Trials & Regular Club Runs

HVAC holds a weekly 2, 4 or 8km time trial every Thursday night and you do not have to be a member to participate. The pub is open so runners can gather for a drink or two afterwards. We hold a braai night on the first Thursday of each month and encourage members and their families to come and join in.

HVAC also hold monthly club runs on a chosen Saturday and members have access to running groups that meet locally during the week.
