About us

Athletics and Cross Country is an inclusive and welcoming club, which provides opportunities for all. Across our multiple sessions, we offer group training catered to sprints, middle and long-distance for all ability levels.
Whether you want to gain fitness, compete in nationwide competitions against the very best, or just run for fun, we can guarantee that Athletics & Cross-Country will be the club for you.

Membership

Our membership for the 2022/23 Academic year is formatted in two levels.
All Athletics members will be required to purchase the Standard Membership (£18 for Term 1, £40 for the whole year). This membership provides;

  • Access to our on-campus grass training sessions twice a week, on Monday and Thursday afternoons
  • Join the club at all social and club events thrown throughout the year
  • The ability to stand and vote in elections & by-elections to decide the current and future Athletics committees running the club
  • Join Athletics as a member at Colours Ball, the annual Royal Holloway sports awards ceremony where dinner, drinks, and dance are provided

There is an additional competitive top-up ontop of the Standard Membership (£40 for Term 1, £90 for the whole year). This top-up is designed for Athletes who want to compete with the university at our regional and national races & competitions. Purchasing this competitive top-up provides;

  • Additional training once a week on Wednesdays at Thames Valley Athletics Track.
  • The ability to compete for the university at our London based university league LUCA, and our national university competitions with BUCS.
  • The Athletics club will cover all entries to LUCA & BUCS races for Athletes

Overall, we will provide you with the chance to stay fit and healthy, improve as a runner, allow you to gain competitive experience, and introduce you to a variety of different students from all around the world.
