Hout Bay Harriers Running Club
Welcome to Hout Bay Harriers
We are based in the beautiful Hout Bay and use the Vine Café, in Hout Bay Main Road as our club house on Tuesday evenings. We also have an agreement in place with Velocity Gym to use their showers on a Tuesday evening after the club run. Please enquire for more information. Come along and join us for a run, meet some like minded friendly people and have fun at the same time!
For any queries or if you are unsure how to join, please forward an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will manually add your name to the mailing list.
We have a pack run every Tuesday night from The Vine Café, starting at 6:00pm. Normally we would split into two groups. The faster group would run at an average pace of between 4 & 5 mins per km and the slower group between 5:30 & 6:30 mins per km. The runs vary between 5km to 10km.
The Harriers have both road and trail running whats app groups to keep you informed. The Vine also host trail runs throughout the week as well.
The first Tuesday of every month is the 5km Time Trial evening. Starting at 6:00pm from The Vine Café.
These Time Trials are sponsored by Hout Bay Dental Studios, and we often have cash prizes on offer for
various formats. The prizes are not awarded to the fastest runners, but rather based on a competition
such as predicted time, lucky draws, teams etc. Time trials results are emailed out to runners.
Training for Oceans 56km & Comrades 90km
Using the WPA running calendar as the basis for our planned long runs, we will share a weekly schedule
via the WhatsApp group and Google email group to keep our members informed of upcoming training
runs. E-mail email@example.com to join the distribution list.

We are in the process of obtaining permission from the relevant authorities to use Chapmans Peak Drive
for our annual race. All members are asked to assist on the day of the race, either as marshals, registration
helpers, at a water table or wherever else there may be a need.
