Member Update: 15 March 2020
Over the last few days we have watched the world change before our eyes. COVID19 and the year 2020 will be written about by historians.
We have seen countries which have dealt with the risk and appear to be prevailing. We have also seen what happens when this virus spreads unabated.
South Africa is particularly vulnerable to the risks that this illness carries as it is the elderly and immuno-compromised who are at the greatest risk.
Our healthcare system is already beset with challenges.
However each and every person can make a difference - fastidious hygiene and minimising unnecessary personal contact.
As gatherings of more than 100 people have officially been banned, we are going to suspeend our regular club runs until further notice.
People are urged to either run alone or arrange smaller groups amongst themselves.
This is an unprecedented step, but we all have loved ones in our lives to whom transmission of this virus could be catastrophic.
That said, we are better prepared for a global pandemic than at point in human history. We will continue to monitor the situation and update accordingly.

Welcome to Benoni Northerns Athletic Club

Our club continues to grow from strength to strength and record entries in the top road running events has become the norm.  We pride ourselves on our ability to maintain a healthy balance between athletic achievement and social activities. This balance is important to ensure a vibrant club experience and we encourage all members to train hard, but to play hard as well.  We cater for all levels of athletic ability and whilst it is not a secret that we do tend to focus on the longer races such as Comrades and Two Oceans, we enjoy having many members who exclusively run or walk the shorter races. Our club ethos is one of participation and friendliness and as such we attract members accordingly.
