Fat Cats Athletic Club (Fat Cats AC) was established in June 2014 as an extension of the Fat Cats organisation’s sports offering, which was originally launched with the Fat Cats Football Club in 2003.
The Club is registered with the Central Gauteng Athletics Association (GCA).
We are a virtual club with runners from all over the country, creating a home for running enthusiasts irrespective of their location.
The club is anchored by a strong thread of friendship and family. For more than 10 years, the Fats Cats family has brought together people from different backgrounds and professional disciplines over a game of sport.
Fat Cats AC has achieved a lot in a short space of time. Some of our achievements include having 18 members participating in and completing the 2016 Comrades Marathon to 162 athletes participating in the 2019 edition. This is a great achievement and quiet a leap from the 6 members who initially took a stinct at The Ultimate Human Race in the 2015 edition, which was the first Comrades Marathon that Fat Cats AC registered itself in, as a club.
Other achievements include our growing presence in the big races such as Washie 100 Miler, Addo and Sanistangger to name a few.
To date Fat Cats AC is home to approximately 500 runners, with more than 200 of our members being female.
