If you are a student or a member of staff at the University of Manchester and want to take part in Athletics or Cross Country, in a competitive or non-competitive environment, then this is the club for you.
At the start of each year during Fresher’s Week, there is a sports fair in the Students’ Union. We will be there so make sure to keep an eye out for us! We are very approachable so feel free to come, pick up a flyer and ask us anything.
The club has one of the cheapest memberships in all of the sports union at Manchester costing £40 a year. This covers all of your insurance, entry to races, training sessions and allows you to join us on trips away that are HUGELY subsidised. For certain races, members are required to be affiliated with England Athletics. Those wishing compete in such races will have to pay an extra £10 affiliation fee (unless already affiliated through their home athletics club). Club captains will inform you when and where this is required.
Membership forms will be handed out at training sessions and will be posted on this website towards the start of the new academic year.
If you require any other information before September, please feel free to email one of the club captains any time.
Alternatively you can message us through our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/UMACCC/
If you are unsure of joining, you are most welcome to come along to a few training sessions to start with before you make a decision to see what it’s like. Please do come along and ask not only committee members, but any member what they think of the club. We’re certain that you won’t be disappointed!
