About Akasia Athletic Club

Akasia athletes found a new home northwest of Pretoria when they changed their name from Onderstepoort Striders to Akasia Atletic Klub.

We are a small running klub of about 65 members known by our blue running shorts with white and green tops branded with the blue Akasia emblem. 

We are all about running and host annually two races:
