Natal Carbineers AC -Official Site


Natal Carbineers A.C. is a popular Pietermaritzburg based running and walking club. Known as ‘Carbs’ among the running fraternity, we recently relocated to the Alexandra Bowling Club off Alexandra Road.

On Wednesday evenings club members meet for the weekly club training run or do our measured time trial. Various training groups do however, meet and train from the club on most other days.

‘Carbs’ is the host club for the annual Maritzburg City Marathon. This event is extremely popular in its own right and as a Comrades/Two Oceans Marathon qualifier. The club is also involved in other organized events throughout the year, like the Spar Ladies and Mandela Marathon.

‘Carbs’ as a club is well represented at a number and variety of events on the race calendar. Road runners, race walkers and trail runners alike participate enthusiastically and can look forward to support from fellow club members. An encouraging; “GO CARBS!” may often be heard from fellow members and supporters alike.
