Phantane AC - CT Marathon

Personal message

Phantane Athletics Club was officially established in 2013 through local initiatives as a non-profit organisation. The Club is based in Avoca Hills, KwaZulu Natal, and consists of approximately 50 Athletes, mostly elites and competitive runners specialising in short to middle-distance road running, track & field, and cross-country.

 Phantane AC is keenly focused on the development of local talent and the upliftment of less fortunate athletes. 

The Club mobilises young people from disadvantaged backgrounds such as townships and rural areas and helps them to discover their raw and neglected running talent.

 The majority of the Club's members are unemployed and depend on running for an income, a situation which is particularly challenging in the absence of races due to Covid-19.

In 2021, Phantane AC teamed up with a group of female athletes who previously formed part of the Team Massmart marathon and ultra-distance running team.  

By working together, the Club hopes to cultivate young female talent in both KwaZulu Natal and Central Gauteng.

The Club would like to take a team of 10 athletes to take part in the Cape Town Marathon to be held on 17 October 2021.

 Fundraising will be required to cover the cost of the athletes’ travel and accommodation, as well as a pair of shoes and a new running kit in which each of the athletes can train and compete.  

We are working in the following areas:

  1. Durban, KwaZulu Natal.
  2. Johannesburg, Central Gauteng.

The goals that we achieve with raised funds:

The Club will be able to send 10 athletes, selected on the basis of merit and/or financial need to take part in the Cape Town Marathon.
