Welcome to Burnley AC
Burnley AC is a long established club going back many years originating with an old cinder track. The track was upgraded in 1998 to the present synthetic track through various joint fundings 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 the club to host Local, National Regional competitions. This again was awarded to us through various fundings.
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.

Annually we hold a presentation evening, this is when our Athletes are rewarded for their hard work over the previous 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.
