About RAC - Ricoh Athletics Club
Four Ricoh staff members who regularly take part in races and marathons throughout South Africa initiated the Ricoh Athletics Club in March 2010. RAC received its affiliation through Central Gauteng Athletics and the club has 28 full-time members, and four committee members who ensure that all matters of the club are handled appropriately
RAC provides its members with a full running strip, tracksuit and running license as well as entries into races and in some cases transport and refreshments. In the case of large international marathons, the top achievers in the club receive full sponsorship to take part in the live televised events such as The Comrades Marathon in KZN and The Two Ocean’s Marathon in Cape Town.
The club encourages a healthy lifestyle and provides competitive opportunities that its largely underprivileged members might not otherwise have had.
Ricoh and RAC
Ricoh is the sole sponsor of the RAC and is also currently the office automation supplier of Central Gauteng Athletics. We assist with the sponsorship of water points at races such as the 702 Discovery Walk the Talk, The Comrades Marathon and The Two Ocean’s Marathon.
Currently all members of the RAC and the four committee members are Ricoh employees. This opens doors for those individuals who wish to improve their skillset and gain knowledge on how to run a club.
