There really is something for everyone when it comes to Athletics. Whether you're a beginner or a veteran, recreational runner or future Olympic track star, everyone is welcome to train, compete, or just have fun when you're part of our club. 

We are a mixed ability club with backgrounds in different disciplines, but we all come together and support one another, with a shared passion for Athletics. On your marks...get set...JOIN!

All club training has now ceased for 2023/24. Students enquiring about joining the club in 2024/25 season can contact the Club Committee via email. 2024/25 memberships will be available to purchase from September 2024.
