Time Trials

Time trials take place every Wednesday evening at 6.15pm sharp.  Announcements by the Club Captain are made at 6.10pm.

Runners have the option of participating in a 3km, 5km or 8km time trial. There is also a 1.2km run for the little ones.  This takes place around the fields so the kiddies don’t go out onto the street.   Times are recorded for all distances by Derek Eve. We are most grateful for his help!

Wednesdays are by far the most popular evening at the FHAC. Our showers are hot and our beers are cold!  A braai fire is lit and members are encouraged to bring along their braai goodies. Needless to say, the bar is open.  We are still the cheapest pub in town!

Prospective members are invited to join us on a Wednesday evening to get a sense of what we are all about!
