Morningside Country Club Road Runners (MCCRR) is a community of people who gather together for the joy and challenge of road running. The club is a mix of experienced runners and beginners, young and old, ultra and Park runners.
Established in 2005 by Angus Hudson and Keith Binge, the club’s initial focus was to help residents of Morningside avoid the traffic they faced on the way to the time trials of other nearby athletic clubs. Little over a decade later, some of the first members of the club have completed 10 consecutive Two Oceans and Comrades Marathons in the distinctive (blue chessboard) MCCRR colours, affectionally known as the Blokkies. We remain a relaxed, social and inclusive club of approximately 120 members.
MCCRR aims to promote the sport of running and walking in the Rivonia and Morningside area. The club welcomes all members regardless of their background, abilities or experience. We acknowledge that each member has their own goals, from improving their health and fitness, to making new friends or training for a personal best.
We aim to foster an environment that encourages all manner of distances and events and celebrate the wide variety of achievements of our members. While running is an individual sport, we want to create a space for our members to come together socially, to share war stories, as well as provide each other with encouragement and support.
