“AAAC Road Runners” was started late in 1981 by Trevor Le Grange, Barry Botha, Ken Poole and Peet van Niekerk.
The first Chairman of Alberton Amateur Athletic Club was Koos van der Watt, and the Club President was Johann van der Merwe. The Club hosted its first Road Race, a 21,1 km event, in 1982 under the banner of “Fountain Pools” and has hosted this event for the 24th time in 2005. This event was a solid fixture on the first weekend of December every year, and had become known as the annual “Christmas” holiday half marathon, attracting 2800 athletes in 1991.
Since 1992, AAAC Road Runners has also hosted a NITE race over 10 km and later changed it to a 10 and a 15 km, presenting it for the 14th time in 2005.
