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
(Many said that the old cinder track was the quickest in the North West of England)
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, Officials and Committee are all volunteers, non of them are paid
for all the hard work they do in their spare time. 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 or League
Medal/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
Membership numbers of Senior athletes were at an all time low in 2005,
so Burnley AC and Pendle AC joined forces to form a new team called Burnley and Pendle,
wearing an all black vest, this is only for the NoEAA Senior League, in all other
leagues we compete as separate clubs. At the end of the 2014 Track & Field season
it was decided to
go our separate ways and compete as individual clubs (We would like to take this
opportunity to wish Pendle AC all the best for the future).
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
We are located off Barden Lane, BB10 1JQ, and the entrance to the car park is on
NEW HALL STREET.
