NEWLY launched Link Pharmacy Runners Club will take off with a club wellness day which will be held on March 21.

The club was formed this year and it is aiming to keep local people fit.

The wellness day will be held at Murray Sports Ground and will start at 7 am, at a cost of R20 per person.

Addressing the media at the Old Mutual board room on Tuesday, newly elected club chairperson and Kokstad Link Pharmacy director Liatile Ntoa, said they saw a need to form a new athletics club to contribute to the community of Kokstad and make sure people are living healthy lives.

She said they want to transform the local community through the development of athletes, from the youth to the highest levels of excellence.

“Everybody is welcome to join the club. Our joining fee is R200 for under 19 years and R250 for 20 and over. This amount will include a vest and licence,” said Ntoa.

Among the elected new members of the club are Tsepiseng Mkhize as secretary, Thembela Macingwane as treasurer, Steve Maka as technical head and Mxolisi Khumalo as media liaison officer. She said they already have more than 10 active members and more than 20 members have already sent in forms to register.

“We are aiming to visit local schools and encourage talented athletes to join the club. We also want to develop young people,” said Ntoa.

Max Gono, a member of the club, said the club is already officially registered with Athletics South Africa.

“When our athletes participate in any race, they will run under Kokstad Link Pharmacy Runners Club,” said Gono.
