About us

Athletics & 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 cost is just £35 per year. For this one-off price, we provide members with our training sessions and entry to compete and travel to competitive fixtures, on top of additional training once a week at Thames Valley Athletics Track.

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.

Events and Activities

Over the course of the next year members can expect:

  • On-campus training on Mondays and Thursdays, track training on Wednesdays
  • Opportunities for any member to compete in the London-wide LUCA competitions and the national BUCS championship
  • Regular club socials including karaoke, themed parties, our annual Christmas meal, Secret Santa, and regular awards nights to recognise our members’ achievements.
  • Amazing new experiences (Ex. 2019 trip to Edinburgh to compete at BUCS)
  • Finally, we want to assure you that we will provide a safe and risk-free environment for all members to train. We have registered first aiders on our committee.
