Hello and welcome to Brighton and Hove AC, the largest and oldest Athletic Club in the area.

We are a vibrant and thriving club which strives to promote health and well-being in the community through athletic excellence.

Our skilled and experienced coaching staff support athletes of all abilities in the disciplines of track and field, cross-country and road running.

Our athletes, ranging in age from nine to 90, take part in competitions and leagues year-round.

We train at Withdean Stadium on Tuesday (17:00-20:15) and Thursday (17:00-20:00) evenings and on other days and times by arrangement with individual coaches.  Come along and talk to some of our athletes and coaching staff and see how you can get involved in this great sport.
