A COMMUNITY RUNNING CLUB

Linden Runner is a road running club based in Linden, Johannesburg, South Africa

We realised a need amongst fellow runners for a central and safe point to run from in our neighbourhood and heeded that call after consulting Linden Bowling Club in 3rd Street.

We are based at the Linden Bowling Club Sports grounds, have access to toilet facilities as well as their famous bar and outside patio area where you can watch the majestic sunset and have a clear view of Northcliff tower.

From January 2018, our club became a fully functional, registered road running club.  As a registered member you will receive access to the clubhouse and safe parking, an ASA license, a Club Card for membership discount at partner outlets and our supporters gazebo at the finish line of all major road running races. Linden Runner kit can also be purchased from our online shop. View our 2019 membership rates and sign up.

We host early morning club training runs for our members on Tuesday, Thursday & Friday mornings, and our formal Club Time Trial of 3/5/8km take place every Wednesday evening from 17:46 pm in summer and 17:30pm in winter.

As a dedicated scholar development running club, we offer invaluable guidance to scholars and novice runners in the sport of road, trail and cross country running. Linden Runner boasts a membership base well mixed with top Ironman, triathlon, trail running, and podium track athletes.

We urge our road running club members to set 2 goal races for the year (summer & winter) and train, with our assistance and group support, to achieve these specific goals. For 2019 we have a strong team signed up for OMTOM Ultra and half marathon, and Comrades. We support our smaller local races and encourage our members to chase their own goals in mind.

We welcome Parkrun atletes who wish to better themselves and become more experienced runners. Family running is the foundation and inspiration behind our Club’s existence. Female and male runners with running prams are also welcome to join.

Our road running club boasts safe and secure parking for all members and our routes are challenging yet achievable for any level of runner. The Linden Bowling Club offers meals on Wednesday evenings for all members who wish to stay behind and relax after a run.

Please email us if you have any questions.
