mp celtics

One of the oldest clubs in South Africa, Celtic Harriers is based at Brookside in Claremont (Cape Town). The club hosts and organises the Cape’s biggest and best race, the Two Oceans. The club is synonymous with Cape athletics and has seen many top athletes grace its colours, the famous ‘green and white’ hoops. The club caters for runners from beginners to the elite.

The club has an incentive scheme for rewarding members for outstanding performances in all disciplines and categories, juniors to masters. Added to this is the fact that the club is socially very active and encourages all members to make the most of their club facilities.
