Over the last year, we have come up with the #OneTeamOneDream slogan. This slogan ensures we cohesively work together from the board level across to the athletes. We have to ensure those guiding organisational strategy represent the different stakeholders in our network. With over 17 000 club members across the greater Cape Town Metropolitan, there are so many valuable voices and perspectives to account for in our planning process.

With this in mind, we’re honoured and excited to introduce two new Board members to the WPA board, Adnaan Mohamed from Central Athletics as an Additional Board member and Candyce Hall from Carbineers WP as the Cross Country chairperson.

Adnaan Mohamed – Additional Board Member

Adnaan Mohamed is a specialist sports journalist who is passionate about the sport of athletics. As an additional board member he will take responsibility for the 112 clubs currently under the auspices of WPA and oversee WPA’s media and communications strategy.

Adnaan has successfully completed more to than 200 marathons in a running career spanning more than 20 years. As a media expert qualified in media and communications strategies, he sees his role as ensuring the implementation of a comprehensive communications strategy that includes all the stakeholders within WPA.  

Candyce Hall – Cross Country Chairperson

Candyce is a Biokineticist who is also a running coach. She is the chairperson and founder of Carbineers WP running club. She and her family have been involved in athletics at various levels of participation administration and event organisation for approximately 30+ years.
