ASA License Number
For races 5km and more (fun runs are up to 4,9km) you need to obtain a provincial license (Athletics Gauteng North) from the club, which is valid for a year. The alternative is to buy a temporary license at each race, which will be valid for that race only.You are advised not to buy a license from the club if you will not be turning 15 years of age in the current year. The minimum age for participation in a 5km race (5km races are extremely rare) is 9 years i.e. turning 9 not later than 31 Dec of the current year, and for 10km the minimum age is 15. Club membership and license fees must be paid before a license will be issued.The licenses must be affixed to the front and back of your running vest or RunningT.
The membership fees for 2020, as determined at the Annual General Meeting held in October 2019, are as follows:
If you are going to run/walk races 5km and more you will need to obtain club colours.The club has a stock of running vests and RunningT’s for both male and female runners.

These are also available from the club. Alternatively, they can be purchased from any running shop.

To qualify for a category prize you must be wearing age category tags for your age group on the front and back of your vest. If you are not wearing these tags you are automatically entered into the senior age category (see “Age categories” on the next page). These tags can be bought at the club for a nominal amount. (see price list above)
These are optional and can be ordered from the Admin Officer. The cost is R25.00 per nametag. Members are encouraged to acquire such a name tag, which will make it easier to get to know each other at the races.
