On Sunday 26 January Central Athletics will be hosting our Annual Awards and Annual General Meeting (AGM) at Groote Schuur High School at our Vredenhof Clubhouse at 15:30 off Keurboom Road in Newlands.

Besides celebrating the excellent performances and brilliant achievement of our runners, we will also be electing a new executive committee to take our club forward into the sixth year of our existence.

We urge all members who feel they can contribute to avail themselves for the various portfolios on the exco.  A copy of the club’s constitution and details of the different roles can be found here:
