West Coast Athletic Club are a busy bunch of people. With the continuous fundraising drive to raise the cash required to build our new club house so that our members can have a place to call home, there are numerous events being promoted throughout the year, which can get confusing with the different teams running separate promotions all over the show. Hopefully this page will help to put all these events into perspective.
West Coast Half Marathon
West Coast AC’s annual main event, the half marathon and fun run, held in Melkbosstrand, starting and finishing at the NSRI station on the main Melkbos beach front.
The race is a scenic fast and flat race, great for PB’s, run under the auspices of the WPA and ASA, it’s an official road race with all the usual rules and regulations. However it is a fun event with a festive vibe at the finish.
Medals to all fun runners and the first 1500 half marathon finishers.
Get there early, parking gets quite tricky and you don’t want to get to the start late.

With a new route in 2018 starting and finishing at the new Table Bay Mall , there are two challenging routes taking runners out into the reserve and up Blaauwberg hill, sporting spectacular views across Table Bay where runners can see across the bay to Cape Town and Robben Island.
Runners are advised to be self sufficient on the route, as is the norm with trail running. There is a water refill station on top of the hill but no water sachets and limited plastic cups will be available.
As is tradition on this race, the “medal” is a beautiful hand-crafted glass coaster.
