Welcome to the Fish Hoek Athletics Club (FHAC), home of the Red Hill, PUFfeR, 4 Hills for Lindsay and other popular runs.  FHAC has been serving the deep south running community since 1977.

The club has gone from strength to strength since its inception as a cross-country and short distance club to one that focuses on all distances and disciplines. We are a family-oriented club encouraging the whole family to get involved.

From our weekly time trials which includes a specially selected safe 2km loop  for younger children, and a choice of a 3km, 5km or 8km route for the adults. There are also a number of additional unofficial runs that you can join during the week including speed and hill work sessions. Saturday morning runs are where we tackle all the wonderful (longer) routes in our beautiful valley. 

You will find us at the Fish Hoek sports fields in Nelson Road and you are welcome to pop in to the club on a Wednesday evening at around 18h00 for a chat, a run, a drink or all three.
