Phantane Run Club
The Phantane Run Club started in 2013 in Avoca Hills in KZN.
The club currently has 76 athletes who mostly compete in road running, track & field & cross-country, at an elite & competitive level.
The club focuses on identifying up & coming running talent from disadvantaged backgrounds, particularly from within their local community.
The majority of the club members are unemployed & depend on the prize money earned competing as their main source of income. Running for these athletes has become a means to better their lives, the lives of their families as well as their communities.
Despite their very real challenges, Phantane Run Club have quickly become a force to be reckoned with – as regular podium finishers, record breakers & with team members being selected to compete for South Africa.
Totalsports & The Gijima Foundation, are proud kit sponsors of the Phantane Run Club & are looking forward to being part of growing & developing the future running talent of South Africa.
