About The Club

Brighton and Hove Athletic Club is the oldest and largest athletic club in the area, it has developed from a harriers club, which was founded over 100 years ago.

We provide coaching and competition for Track and Field, Cross Country, Road Running and Marathon.

The club trains at Withdean Sports Complex in Brighton (see map), details of training groups and times can be found on our training page.

We are affiliated to both the Sussex County AAA and South of England AA and compete in county, regional and national leagues and competitions.

Here at Brighton and Hove Athletic Club, we pride ourselves on providing a high standard of coaching and competition for all our athletes - regardless of their ability and tailored to their individual requirements.

The club organises several races each year, including the prestigious annual Brighton 10k Road Race, in the past this has been the AAA of England Championship and the South of England Championship. It is usually the Sussex 10k Championships race.

In the summer, we hold the Brighton Evening Open, which includes a Minithon (3 events) for the younger athletes and is usually host to the South of England 3000m or 10000m Championship event.

The club house provides the central meeting area for members before and after training. Here they can warm up before their session, and afterwards enjoy snacks and hot beverages from the tuck shop. It is also a good place for parents to meet on cold or wet training evenings!

Information about coaching, forthcoming events and race results can all be found on the club notice boards.

Club Awards are presented in the clubhouse twice each year, here athletes are recognised for their individual successes and team input during the summer and winter seasons. The summer presentation evening is usually followed by a Barbeque.
