Welcome to the
University of Nottingham Athletics Club
Welcome to Nottingham University Athletics Club!
We are a competitive and friendly club open to athletes of all abilities, from the casual jogger trying to get fit, to international athletes. We compete in a wide range of events, including track & field (both indoor and outdoor), cross country and road running. We participate in the major BUCS championships each year, as well as many other events such as the University relay series (which we won in 2005), local cross country leagues. Our men’s team have previously finished a very respectable 5th in the BUCS cross-country championships, and we had two gold medallists at the track & field championships in 2011. Also, in 2009, we had 1st and 2nd in the BUCS Marathon (incorporated in the London Marathon).
We encourage participation and are enthusiastic for anyone to get involved! We have a strong social scene, because we don’t just race hard, we party hard! Fortnightly socials during term time keep team spirits high, with highlights including our Christmas Meal and our infamous travelling dinner party. We have also been known to train and relax abroad during the Easter holidays…
We hold a relay race every year on campus in memory of former student and athlete Ed Prickett who was tragically killed in 2005. It’s become a very popular event, with the 4 x 2 miles relay on a challenging and picturesque road course attracting many clubs and universities from surrounding counties.
