RUNNING FOR ECAC

“It has been a great year and season. I love my club and the team mates, coaches and support. We aren’t the biggest club in the country but we have made an impact in under 3 years that we have existed because of the passion the athletes and management have for athletics. I’m pleased that I was able to run my first full season without injuries for the club and made good progress. I look forward to representing the club in 2017”

2017 GOALS

“I want to constantly run sub 1:48 and place top 3 at SA’s. I want to run 800m in 1:46.3, 400m in 46.5 and 200m in 21.3.”

FROM THE CLUB TO THEMBA

How awesome is it that the Managing Director of EC runs for the Club as well? And what an excellent example he is to all the other club members when it comes to breaking barriers and being brave. Flooded by injury in previous years one of our very own #ECmoments for Themba was when he ran his opening 800m for the year at the UJ & Nkwalu meeting and showed incredible guts and bravery. He not only shares his knowledge to the club members but to all the young kids he coaches and those that attends the EC camps. He puts as much back into athletics as he puts into himself, if not more! For Themba and his 800m, there is still MUCH more to come!!
