Welcome


Club nights cancelled during the lockdown, see website news for latest guidance

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.

During the present COVID-19 pandemic, we are sadly not accepting any new members unless they are senior athletes. We do not have the capacity to take on more members until all coaches can work at their pre-pandemic capacity.

When training is able to begin again properly, come along and talk to some of our athletes and coaching staff and see how you can get involved in this great sport.

For advice and information please email Club Secretary Bob Willows: bob.willows@brightonandhoveac.com
