Not just another running club...


Situated in beautiful Knysna, the Knysna Marathon Club has been operational since 1984 and boasts some of SA’s top marathons, including The Knysna Forest Marathon & The Heads Marathon. Surrounded by breath taking scenery, and the beautiful estuary, we truly believe you won’t find a better place to run!


The official club kit comprises of a lime green running vest with the wording “Knysna Marathon Club” as well as the Loerie logo. Pants must be black. There is also an option for black pants with the Loerie print as shown here. Club colours must be worn during official events where Knysna Marathon Club is being represented as per the rules of ASA.

Clothing can be purchased at Time Trial on a Thursday evening. In additional to our standard kit, we also have track suits, hoodies, caps and jackets.
