The club boasts a proud Comrades tradition and a wealth of running experience available to any runner looking to reach their goal; be it their first half marathon, marathon or ultra; with weekly time trials and club runs. We also count an active walkers group, cyclists and avid trail runners among our members. Pirates hosts two races and three event club runs on the annual running calendar

A team of runners usually who go out at 5:45pm on Thursday evenings and do anything from 10-21km’s. This becomes more formal from end-January when Comrades training begins in earnest.

SUNDAY CLUB RUNS

On Sunday mornings at 7am we have a club run from the main Pirates car park – we all head out together and after approx 2km the group often splits into a longer (often faster) group and a shorter (slightly slower) group. The distances vary but are never shorter than 10km. Closer to Comrades, the longer (faster) group usually runs a 21km route every week.
