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. Please volunteer to assist!

Blitz (Time Trial)
The Boksburg Athletic Club time trial is fondly referred to as “The Blitz”. It is held every Wednesday of
the year from Jimmy Cawood Park off Jubilee Road, opposite the Boksburg City Stadium – whatever
the weather. The start time from September to April is 6pm and from May to August it’s 5.45pm.
Three distances are available to run: 2km, 4km and 8km. Results are published in ‘The Snippets’
every week and in the ‘Boksburg Advertiser’.
We look forward to seeing you at our training runs where, for a nominal fee, you will be provided with
water and cold drink approximately every 3km, a route map and a catch car should you feel the need
to cut your run short. Training runs are an excellent way to get to know fellow members better and to
gain invaluable training advice from our more experienced athletes.
Please consult the club’s training calendar and the weekly newsletter – ‘The Snippets’ – for more
details regarding these runs.
