The University of Sheffield Athletics and Cross Country is one of the biggest clubs at the University. Previous Sheffield University and Yorkshire Sports club of the year, we pride ourselves on accepting members of all abilities from complete beginners to those competing at an international level.
We are currently working on an improved membership system:
EIS and Woodbourn Membership - £125 (tbc) - Both sprinters and long distance athletes will be provided dedicated coaches to ensure athlete progression, including 2 track sessions per week at Woodbourn Athletics stadium and the EIS. This membership also includes England Athletics affiliation, meaning athletes can compete for the university.
EA Affiliated Member - £21 (tbc) - This includes the cost required to be an affiliated member of the club through England Athletics. If you are already affiliated to this body at a home club please message our Club Captain for more details. This membership does not include the annual subscriptions to either track. Any track sessions done by this kind of member will have to pay for each session. More information on facilities can be found here.
Social Member - £15 (tbc) - Social members can attend group runs, social runs and social sprints organised by the club. However, they cannot compete for the club and cannot attend coach led training sessions. This is ideal for any student looking for a warm and welcoming environment to socialise and keep fit at the same time. For those athletes willing to progress, the club will provide a dedicated pathway for them to follow and become full members.
