Athletics Club

Welcome to Cardiff University Athletics Club 2018-19

We're a friendly and welcoming club inviting students of all abilities, from serious athletes to those simply wanting to run to keep fit. We offer four training sessions a week, compete in various competitions (including BUCS), and have fantastic socials!

So, whether you are in training for your next marathon, or looking for a fun and affordable sports club to join, just come along to any of our training sessions and try us out for free!

A track session that caters for sprinters and endurance athletes of all abilities. Cost of £2.00 per session.

Athletics: not traditionally known for wild nights out. Here at CUAC, we do our best to dispel this harmful misconception. With regular socials all around Cardiff, we challenge anybody who says we don't know how to have a good night out! All club members can attend our socials, and we're a friendly and welcoming bunch - we're open to newcomers at all times!

As well as socials throughout the year, we also offer our club members the chance to go away on tour with the club. The club tour takes place in the Easter break, and we run a half marathon in Europe. Rather than being an exposition of athletic excellence, it's more of a test of how well you can run on 3 hours sleep, with a few exceptions, of course!

Look forward to seeing you on the socials!


You can order official CUAC kit from Rhino Teamwear Team vests or crop tops are required to compete in BUCS events and recommended for all other races.


We compete in the BUCS Indoors, Outdoors and Cross Country Championships. As well as this we also take part in the Gwent cross country league, in which the men's team came 1st last year and the women's 3rd. Other competitions include the UWIC indoor open meetings and the Welsh open meetings, as well as our annual varsity match against Swansea! You can signup for upcoming events below, but please only do so if you are planning on going. Of course, if you are injured or ill we will let you off!



Membership is just £18 for the entire year, one of the cheapest of all Athletics Union clubs! For this bargain price, you'll receive four weekly training sessions as well as discounted (or free!) entry and transport to the races we attend. All new members are welcome to come and try us out for two sessions before committing to purchasing a membership.
