Pretoria Marathon Club
Welcome to the historic Pretoria Marathon Club (PMC), the oldest running club in Pretoria! Established over four decades ago, PMC boasts a rich legacy that has shaped the running community in the region. In 2013, we proudly celebrated our 40th anniversary, marking years of passion, dedication, and countless running milestones.
Founded by the esteemed George Claassen Sr., a key figure in the club and father of the iconic Springbok captain Wynand Claassen from the '80s, PMC has become a cornerstone of Pretoria's running culture. In honor of our founding member, we host the prestigious annual race named after George Claassen Sr., a testament to the enduring spirit and commitment to excellence that defines PMC.
Over the years, PMC has been a breeding ground for exceptional runners, with many achieving silver or gold medals in the renowned Comrades Marathon. Join us at the Pretoria Marathon Club, where history meets the road, and every stride is a part of our proud legacy. Whether you're a seasoned athlete or a newcomer to the running scene, be a part of our community as we continue to make history one race at a time.
