Northumbria Sport’s athletics programme works in partnership with Gateshead Harriers Athletics Club to deliver a series of coached weekly sessions that cater for all abilities. These sessions run as part of North Clubs, one of the largest University participation programmes in the country.

Athletics is included within the British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) competition and Team Northumbria offers a performance programme, with athlete scholarships available. Individual athletes have the opportunity to work closely with a network of coaches and clubs throughout the region.
