         Enjoy life
         while getting fit
         Would you like to get fit, de-stress and
         lose weight?
          Then Phalaborwa Road Runners or
         Run/Walk for Life is just the place for you!
         Quite apart from enjoying the great out-
         doors while pounding the tarmac; there is
         a great social side too!
          PRRC members tend to be more am-
         bitious, aspiring to distances like
         Marathons and Comrades whereas R/WFL
         members are mostly walkers who prefer
         shorter distances.
          Licensed R/WFL members become as-
         sociate members of PRRC but retain a
         separate identity.
          PRRC would like to invite anyone in-
         terested to attend a couple of Time Trials
         on Tuesdays at 17:30 to see what it's all
         about. You don't have to be a star athlete
         - you can walk or run any distance from 3
         to 8Km. An influx of youngsters would be
         wonderful because most of the members
         are getting on a bit.
          The first Tuesday of the month is also a
         social occasion, which will give potential
         members a chance to check out the pub &
         wors rolls as well!
          So dust off your takkies and get out there.
