Thesis Run Cru (TRC)

Thesis Run Cru was officially launched in 2014 during the Soweto Marathon Bridge The Gap event by Wandile. The crew was founded with the aim of fostering an urban running culture in the hope of getting the youth and people of Soweto doing something for their health in a fun and supportive way.

A healthy body is a healthy mind.


As Thesis Run Cru we say: “Running is not our life, but it is a perfect balance to a good life.” Located at the Eyethu Lifestyle Centre in Soweto, South Africa, TRC has grown significantly: on average TRC hosts between 50 and 100 runners on a weekly basis.

Besides our local social and training runs we are passionate about growing an urban running culture that’s accessible for everyone through our annual events such as June 16 run, the Heri-Night Run and Bridge The Gap events.
