"If you have a body, you are an athlete"

There really is something for everyone, in athletics. At GCU there is no better club to join the athletics team, the current TEAM OF THE YEAR! We have such a vast range of members, who take part in sprints, middle distance, long distance, jumps, throws, multi-events and even the odd marathon. We love everything athletics and won't turn anyone away, no matter if it is their first time putting on a pair of trainers or the next Usain Bolt. 

We train throughout the week, meeting in the Student Association building at 5.15pm. Our lovely training convenors will make you feel at ease and encourage you all of the way. After training, why not join them for a social pint and bite to eat at the new SA bar? 

If you're willing to take part in competitions, we compete all over the UK, throughout the entire year. Competing in events run by Scottish Athletics, Scottish University Athletics and British University Athletics, which range from London to the Isle of Man. 

We pride ourselves on our socials at GCU Athletics. With one of the largest memberships at Caley, we're starting to gain a reputation for having the best social events in the university. Our Social Convenor is always on hand planning the next event and has a social event biweekly, which ranges from our famous sub crawl to bring a dish. Most competitions we take part in also host a large social event after (which is why most of us go down!). 

Our membership this year costs £25, which we feel is great value for money and has many benefits...

With our membership you get...

  • Discounted competition vest/crop top at just £5!
  • Discounted massage/physiotherapy at Glasgow City Physiotherapy at just £25 for an hour!
  • Discounted podiatry with Stella Winters 10% off
  • Discounted food, drink and free entry to gigs at Record Factory
