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
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.
