A rapidly progressing club, at Running and Athletics we aim to cater for all and any ability. Whether you want to compete at high level athletics events, 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 is the team to join.
We have three aspects to our one club, so we have something suitable for everyone:
We have two coaches to help out with the training; 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 relays and local track competitions. We also compete at a national level in BUCS athletics indoor and outdoor championships as well as BUCS cross country championships. Additionally, we host 2 great events: a 3K relay and an open graded athletics meet.
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. We have a social every other week roughly which are always great fun for the whole club to enjoy!
