Club Captains race next week

Running remains an ever popular sport amongst Namibians. A group of Windhoek Harriers’ runners proudly display their medals after returning from the Two Oceans ultra-marathon in Cape Town. Wind and icy rain did not deter the runners to complete the distance of 56km. The biggest road running/walking club in the country, Windhoek Harriers has announced that registration for this year’s Club Captains 15 or 30 km race to be held on Saturday 28 April will close this coming Tuesday, 24 April.
A maximum 50 runners and walkers per category will be accomodated this year and only pre-entries will be accepted.Like in the past, athletes can choose to enter a category of their own choice  – either the 15 or 30 km race as well to run or walk.
Windhoek Harriers say it is inviting new members to join. The club is very active with weekly training and regular events scheduled throughout the year.
“Fatties and lazies are more than welcome. Meet new people, stay fit and start participating in the many fun events organised by this active running club” the club said in a statement announcing next week’s Club Captain’s run.
Windhoek Harriers is a running/walking club of about 200 active members. The club hosts several events during the year in and around Windhoek. Time-trials are held every Tuesday from the club house at the Hockey Union Fields next to the Athletic Stadium in Olympia at 18:00.
You do not need to be a top notch runner to join Windhoek Harriers at any of their events. Like any club, Windhoek Harriers offers a fun social environment, people also enjoy running and walking as a means to stay fit, cross train, meet other people and socialise after a good run.
“The beauty of running is that it is unpretentious, simple, adaptable and positive, and any healthy person, regardless of age, can walk or run.
“You may initially not go fast or far, and you may walk in between your running, but once you start making running a regular habit, you’ll lose weight, lower your blood pressure, reduce the stress of daily life and feel a surge of energy. You’ll strengthen your body while managing your stress levels down,” the club said.
