Time Trials

The club time trial is run over a 5km route starting from the clubhouse on a Thursday evening at 18h00.  Visitors and walkers are welcome!  The course is flat and fast and runs through the streets of the Pinelands along Forest Drive towards Old Mutual and back again.

There is also a 2.5km route for anyone who wants to do the shorter distance.

Refreshments are on sale after the run, and lucky draw prizes add to the fun on the evening.

We cater for our younger runners by having a shorter 4 lap course around the 2 Oval fields to keep them off the roads.
Afterwards a light snack is sold and members are encouraged to bring their families for an evening out.  There are spot prizes on offer each week.

We use a barcode timing system for our Thursday time trials.  If you would like your time recorded you must have and run with a ParkRun barcode (which must also be registered with our club).

If you do not have a ParkRun barcode you can register on the ParkRun website.

Register your ParkRun barcode with us so that we can add you to our database and record your time.

Please note that our scanning equipment can only scan printed barodes; we cannot scan electronic barcodes or QR-codes from your smartphone or watch.

There is an annual award for the club member who runs the most club time trials, 2.5km and/or 5km, from January to November. Athletes must record their activity using the club’s barcode timing system in order to be eligible for this competition.

Awards are subject to the Pinelands Athletic Club Awards Policy.
