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:
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.
