Brief Description of Club Activities

The club is split into two disciplines; Athletics and Cross Country. Athletics covers all track and field events and members can compete in local competitions, competitions with other universities and BUCS. 
The athletics team train at Gateshead Stadium and use both the indoor and outdoor track. Cross country members can run a range of longer distances and regularly participate in the Harrier League, Park Run and local races as well as BUCS. Their training runs are around Newcastle. Several members chose to mix training to get the most of their running and the club. 
The club also holds several of its own events throughout the year and weekly socials, involving members from both athletics and cross country.
