22 Nov ‘17: ATC WEEKLY

ATC Pub Run – CDC2017 – Training This week


ATC Pub Run 2017
A reminder that our annual pub run will be held on Tuesday, 12 December 2017.  We will start from the Green Point Cricket Club at 18:00 and follow a route through the Waterfront and Green Point before finishing off at Café Extrablatt on Somerset Road.

RESULTS:  Details here...

By all accounts, the inaugural Race2Standford was a tough one, with the bike course making sure the event is not just another Ultra. 
The Torpedo SwimRun was, once again, a fantastic event! 
Congratulations to everyone who completed either or both these events!   Results will be in our next full newsletter.
