2016/17 Club Members
Athletics & XC
The Athletics & XC Club provides a number of sessions that are included as part of its membership. Training programs are tailored to individuals depending on their event and experience. We compete in BUCS Cross Country, Indoors and Outdoors Championships. We also compete in regional Cross Country Leagues and a host of National Relays events.
There are 3 or 4 sessions a week, backed up by group runs, strength & conditioning and circuits. We also encourage all our members to take advantage of all the AU sessions’ Inc. foot drills, yoga and spinning.
For the Cross Country folk, it is BUCS Cross Country undoubtedly. It is like going to war with your mates and competing on a stage like no other, you really have to be there to understand the buzz that surrounds it. For the track guys, BUCS Outdoors is the highlight of the calendar. How you fare against the best track teams in the country is a real test of strength and ability.
How to get involved
We are proud to have no entry requirements or trials and welcome all members. The membership price is £95 for students, £45 for Alumni and £50 for Athletics Associate.
