Helderberg Harriers supports Distance for Difference


Winelands Marathon and Half Marathon

The Winelands Marathon has been held consecutively during the month of November since 1978 and is one of WP Athletics’ premier events. For the last 15 years a half marathon has been held in conjunction with the marathon. Both races are very popular, each year drawing runners from all over South Africa, as well as a sprinkling of overseas runners.




During winter our club organises the TIMBERCITY Spookhill 15 km race. This challenging race has also been run consecutively every year since 1981 and takes runners over the infamous “Spookhill”, where at one point the uphill actually looks like a downhill.


Our conspicuous red-and-white vertical striped Helderberg running top make it easy to spot a fellow Helderberger on the road and Helderbergers can be seen in races from the 4 km cross-country events during winter months to the Two Oceans, Comrades and 100-miler ultra marathons
