Athletics and Cross Country is an inclusive and welcoming club with opportunities for all. Across our three weekly training sessions we have sprints, middle and long-distance training groups with opportunities pitched at different skill levels. If you run to maintain, or gain fitness or if you want to compete at London-wide or national competitions we have opportunities for you.
We are very committed to providing new and returning members with the fun atmosphere that is integral to the Athletics experience, even in these uncertain times. We will be maintaining safety guidlines in adherence with government and England Athletics guidelines.

All other sessions have sprints and long distance running groups. Additionally, we will be providing a range of online tutorials and training for the whole of term 1. In person training sessions will all be completed in accordance with government safety guidlines. For Track, we offer middle-distance training as well. Weekend morning run sessions are long distance sessions; we are planning to resume offering a Saturday long distance running session.
As a club, we compete in LUCA and BUCS events across the country. However, due to the uncertain times no dates have been confirmed yet. Please watch this space for new announcements regarding competitions. Additionally, we will announce new information on our social media and at training sessions.
All athletes need time to decompress and we are no exception. We hold regular socials ranging from grabbing a drink together after training, to bigger get-togethers. All get togethers will be following government safety guidelines, making sure we can all have fun and get to know each other while staying safe at the same time.
