At the running and athletics club we cater for all and any abilities. Whether you want to compete at high level athletics events, less serious events such as a local cross country or road running league, or if you just want to keep fit and have fun doing it then the running and athletics club is the team to join!
We have two coaches to help out with the training at the club; one for middle/long distance and one for sprints. They are both attached to a local athletics club and are highly experienced in the sport.
We compete in a wide range of competitions including local cross country and road racing leagues, inter-university road relay competitions. We also compete at a national level in BUCS athletics indoor and outdoor championships as well as BUCS cross country championships. There are also plenty of opportunities to compete in track athletics at a more local level.
At the club we really want to build a sense of team spirit through social events. Bar crawls, curry nights and other events, all offer great opportunities to get to know your fellow runners and really feel welcomed into the team.
