TRAINING:  Details here...

SWIM:  There will be NO CANAL SWIM on Saturday.
There is no training scheduled for this weekend as we will be in Knysna for the Forest Marathon.  Next week we will be back on the normal schedule, starting with Track on Tuesday morning at 06:00.  Please note new entrance arrangement below:
TRACK RUN:  From Tuesday 20 July, you will have to enter the track from the delivery gate at P4.  Please show your ATC Barcode Tag to the security guard in the booth, located at the gate, and proceed to scan in on our sign-in system, which will be located just inside the track grounds.  You are welcome to park in Parking Area P4, which is to your right as you approach the Stadium in Vlei Road, whilst travelling towards Cape Town Stadium, before you get to the Athletics Track.  Please view the layout image further down in this email.  This will offer the closest parking to the entrance.
Access to the toilets will be provided from inside the track.
You must to bring your barcode tag along as you will not be able to access the rack grounds without it.



A reminder that we are now paying for the flood lights used during our sessions at the Green Point Athletics Stadium.  We therefore had to introduce a R50 Training Levy for all track users as well.  This is the same levy that swimmers are paying for the canal swim, so if you have already paid that this season, you don’t have to pay again now.
The levy of R50 is charged once per year and will increase to R80 from 1 August 2017.  Members who have recently paid the R50 or who pays before 31 July 2017 will not have to pay again until August 2018.  Members are requested to purchase the levy online or at the next training session.

EVENTS:  Details here...

Good luck to everyone taking part in the Knysna Forest Marathon and Half this weekend.  We will set the ATC and Embark Gazebos at the finish, so and come and find us there after your run.
It is Bastille Day weekend in Franschoek and on Saturday, runners will do the 50, 35, 25 or 15 Km Trail Run before hitting the town for some “originated in France, perfected in the Cape” refreshments.  Good luck and enjoy!
