Boksburg Athletics Club aims to promote, assist and encourage amateur athletics for members who wish to pursue their personal goals through participation in road running, cross country or track and field.
Boksburg Athletic Club (BAC) is not just a running club. It is an institution steeped in rich history. Since its inception, the club has faced many challenges but has always come out on top, because its members are filled with passion, enthusiasm and commitment to a single goal: fostering the spirit of athletics in all spheres of life.
Boksburg Athletic Club is comprised of many different facets and a wide variety of people from all parts of the population. (See our website link below for more details) RACES Boksburg Athletic Club hosts two road races during the year – the Colgate 15/32km held in May and the newly introduced, Burger and Company 15km in October. Members of Boksburg Athletic Club are not permitted to run these races on race day as the assistance of members is required at these races. Instead, a helpers’ run is organised for all Boksburg Athletic Club members the day before these road races.
Upon joining or re-joining the club you will be requested to advise what duties you are willing to take on at both races.
