Morningside Runners - MCCRR

Time Trials

Time trials are held throughout the year every Wednesday evening at 17:45, starting at the Morningside Country Club (1 De La Rey Road, Morningside). Runners can choose between a 5km or 8km route.

Time trials provide a structured and consistent way, on a measured route, for runners to test their progress and increase their speed throughout the running season. It is also just a fun way to compete with yourself, to compete with others, to improve your race times, to meet likeminded runners or training partners, and to socialise mid-week.

Note the following:

  • The Time Trial routes are marked with white (5km) and yellow (8km) arrows (see route maps below).  
  • Please bring reflective clothing, especially in winter.
  • Juice or energy drinks are provided at the end of the time trial.
  • On the first Wednesday of every month the club hosts a Time Trial Braai at the Hockey Clubhouse for Morningside athletes to compare notes. Please respond to the Facebook invites for catering purposes.
  • If you have a GPS watch, please record your time and upload to Strava for your results to be eligible for our awards (you need to be a member of our Strava Club for this) - If not, the first 3 runner's times (male and female) will be recorded manually

Club Gazebo

The club takes the gazebo and arranges catering for club members at some of the bigger races around Joburg and the rest of the country. It is a great place for club members and families to have a bite and shoot the breeze after a race.

The club also looks to arrange similar facilities at Two Oceans and Comrades.
