Established in 1975
The first Verwoerdburg Marathon, organized by Wiliem Louw, was held in October 1975 over a distance of 42Km.
This birthed a local marathon club with the inaugural meeting held by Willem Louw and the de Beer brothers, Thys and Chris. Later, Tiny Liebenberg and Kobus Louw joined. After affiliating with another group, they became the Verwoerdburg Athletics Club.
The name later changed to Verwoerdburg Marathon Club. When Verwoerdburg’s name changed to Centurion we became known as Alpha Centurion Runners and Walkers (ACRW).
