Running & Athletics


We are a friendly and welcoming club. We offer weekly long and short distance coach led track sessions as well as casual 'social' runs. We welcome all abilities and there are no try-outs. Whether you are a seasoned runner or have never set foot on a running track we would love to have you as a part of our team. 

In addition to weekly training members will have the opportunity to represent Queen Mary at various running events throughout the year, from indoor and outdoor athlectis to x-country. We compete in the events held by LUCA and BUCS. 

If competing is not your thing we would love to have you come along to our training and social activities - it's a great opportunity to keep fit, have fun and meet new people! You can choose your membership according to what it is you'd like to get from the club.
