We are a running club situated in the heart of Hillcrest, KwaZulu Natal. We have a good social vibe at our club and hold regular training runs as well as a time trial every Thursday with a biannual competition.
Founded in 1977, Hillcrest Villagers is one of the great South African running clubs. The legendary Graeme Fraser was one of their founding members and, under his leadership and leg speed, Hillcrest became the eminent Comrades club in Natal. During the Comrades glory days of the 1980s, Villagers extended their fame countrywide by dominating the prestigious Gunga Din trophy (the men’s team prize which is awarded to the fastest four runners from the same club). Being on the Comrades route shortly after half way and a real beating heart of the community, you can just feel its presence on race day.
We at Hillcrest Villagers look forward to hosting you at the 2022 ThreshHold Hillcrest Marathon which will be hosted on the 5th of June. Our huge appreciation to our title sponsor THRESHHold for their support once again, making it possible for us to prepare for another great race day experience for all the participants. Keep an eye on our ThreshHold Hillcrest Marathon Facebook page for continued communication as we approach race day.
