Special Announcement - Club Name Change

on Thursday, 04 December 2014. Posted in General

 

We would like to take this opportunity to inform you that New Balance Multisport Club will be changing its name to Western Province Multisport Club effective 1 January 2015.

The reason for the change is New Balance South Africa has been instructed by their HQ to align themselves with international business practices 

·      New Balance International has global legal requirements around using the NB brand logo and trademark.

·      The colour and style of club kit will remain the same (only the logo will change) and WPA will allow our members to run in either kit until 31 December 2015.

With the longstanding relationship and the fact that the club is the largest multi-sports club in South Africa, New Balance are still very much entrenched and maintain their support of the club and will continue to offer discounted apparel to paid up club members at their flag-ship stores.

Existing partners will remain on board and this opportunity will allow our club to attract and engage with other headline sponsors.

NBMC enjoys steady growth, good support at training and pack meets, great spirit at events and a motivated committee to guide our club through this transition – we are looking forward to a great 2015!

Sincere regards,

the Committee

All set for 'Battle of the Sexes'

on Thursday, 14 August 2014. Posted in Road Running

Presented by the New Balance Multisport Club, the Medihelp Tekkie 10km is the only race in South Africa that is run on a handicap basis. The women get a head start on the men. The handicap, calculated literally seconds before the start of the race by club member and ASA statistician Riël Hauman, is based on the fastest times of the potential winners over the past three months. The women’s course record holder is New Balance Multisport Club member Zintle Xiniwe who won the last two races.

This year, a mountain bike ride has been added to provide more fun and activities for more athletes.

Dudley's Trail Run - another highlight

on Sunday, 06 July 2014. Posted in Trail Running

Presented by the New Balance Multisport Club, the 2014 Dudley’s Trail Run, held at Diemersdal Wine Estate, was once again a highlight on the trail running calendar in the Western Cape.

A total of 642 trail runners had the privilege to enjoy breath taking views on the Stellenbosch Mountains on the one side and Table Mountain on the other side of Diemersdal in perfect weather conditions.

Although some of the big names in trail running participated, the two distances over 15 km and 8 km catered for all levels of fitness.

The winners in the 15km race were Peter Tswayo (1st), Bernard Rukadza (2nd) and club member Christo van Rooyen (3rd). Another member of the club, Liandi van der Westhuizen, won the women’s category. She was followed by Marie Wessels in second place and Chantel Nienaber who finished in third place.

The event is named after the late Dudley Hulbert, well known athletic coach who died in 2011. When the New Balance Multisport Club was formed in 2008, Dudley was appointed as coach. His coaching had an immediate impact. Dudley had a keen eye for talent and potential in athletes, and a gift for fostering novices, helping them get started, improving their performances, and even guiding them to provincial colours. Not only did his commitment and loyalty to runners make a huge impact on their lives, his expertise and experience as one of the top coaches put the New Balance Multisport Club in a position that was often envied by others.

The club has donated R10 000 of the proceeds to the SA Cancer Association.

The event was sponsored by the Thebe Tourism Group, Diemersdal Wine Estate, New Balance, Cape Road Assist, Protea Hotel Durbanville, Steri Stumpie, Nativa, Realclean Services and Tiscali Property Management.

The lucky draw included prizes to the value of R30 000.
