Build It Gods Window

Time trials

Held every Thursday at 5:30 pm. From the Running club. 2k, 4k, 6k, 8k out and back route on tar. Times are recorded. The Route alternates every week, but both routes have hills. Attendance is a good way to stay in touch with club events, also find out about local races and form lift clubs to races.

Saturday runs

Every Saturday when there is no Race in our area. 5:30am start in Summer, 7:00am during Winter. Distances vary from 10Ks to 35ks. These are LSD runs on tar and forest trails. Longer distances build up towards Comrades at end of May. Attendance is a good way to meet and find training partners also there is so much running knowledge to be gleaned from experienced runners.

Monday Walk/Run

Walk/Run from the cluh every Monday 5:30pm.

Club History

Legogote Villagers was started in 1984. At the time the nearest club was in Nelspruit. Mike Harty, Tim Attwell the Methodist minister, and Okkie Rottcher got together and formed the nucleus of a club specifically for White River. Okkie was not even a regular runner at that time. Mike Harty did all the initial spadework in the beginning. Tim Attwell was the first Chairman.

The new club grew very quickly, obviously filling a need in the area and also attracting runners from the Nelspruit club who were resident in White River. This caused a bit of friction between the two clubs initially. Even today runners switch alliances between the two clubs frequently as the two towns are only 20 kilometres apart and many people live in one town and work in the other. They join the club that is more convenient for them.

Legogote Villagers first organised Race was the 1984 Pine Lake Sun 21K. In the early years there were far fewer races in this area and the Pine Lake race became very popular, attracting up to 500 entrants from all over the lowveld and as far as Johannesburg. The area is scenic today still, and some runners bought Time Share at the Pine Lake resort just to be able to run every year.

The first time trials were started at a Sports Shop owned by a member, close to where Midco is today.

The Club Today

The present Clubhouse at the Rugby Club was built in 1995. It had been a dream of Okkie Rottcher and he motivated and brought it to realisation while he was chairman. Many club members contributed funds by buying a brick for R250. Okkie himself supervised sub-contractors and volunteers to complete to project. The club is known for well organised races. A major factor is the support hardware, tables, signs, support poles for banners, cash boxes, pen holders, all made by Jurgen Halbich, race organiser for many years and past Chairman. Another unique feature of our race organisation is the colour coded entry slips we use, making it easy for the Officials to identify all the categories and the lady runners. This innovation was first used in 1997 by André Vianello, our current chairman.

Over the years many famous athletes have travelled to the Lowveld to take part in our races. Some by special invitation. The names include Sonja Laxton, Wally Hayward, Jackie Mekler, Allan Robb, Arnold Geerts, Bruce Fordyce, Nic Bester, and many more. Jackie Mekler officiated at the new clubhouse opening ceremony as well.
