ABOUT THE CLUB

We are a long established club going back many years with an old

cinder track. This was upgraded in 1998 to the present synthetic

track through various joint funding's with Burnley Boys Club, Burnley United FC, Burnley Athletic Club and Burnley Borough Council.

An upgrade of the Hammer/Discus cage in 2011 now allows us to host National competitions, this again was awarded to us through various funding's.

The Clubs Coaches and Officials are all UKA qualified and hold current DBS certificates, as volunteers they each give up their spare time

free of charge to run the Club so that all Membership and Track Fees

go toward the upkeep of the Club and the Affiliations to the various Leagues the Club competes in.  Transport to and from meetings

can be arranged through volunteer drivers, the Club does not cover costs of entries and transport to Open competitions, League Medal meetings or Championship meetings. The Track and Field season

runs from March to September and the Cross Country season runs

from October to March so there is always something to do.

We are members of, and compete in various leagues:

MID LANCS TRACK & FIELD AND CROSS COUNTRY LEAGUE

NORTHERN SENIOR TRACK & FIELD LEAGUE -

NORTHERN MASTERS TRACK & FIELD LEAGUE   

RED ROSE CROSS COUNTRY LEAGUE

At the end of the Track & Field season we hold a presentation evening, this is when our Athletes are rewarded for their hard work over the

past Cross Country & Track & Field season, Certificates

and Trophies are awarded. This is a good time for all the Athletes, Parents, Families and friends to get together for an enjoyable social evening.

may be interested in looking at Steve's photographs. Can you

please let your members who ran at Hyndburn know that these photos are to be found by clicking this Runningpix link.  

Copies of the photo’s can be ordered from his website.



FUNDRAISING

Committee and all BAC’s members are very grateful and proud of Francesca and her efforts to help raise much needed

funds , a BIG well done goes to Francesca!!
