Bury Athletic Club
Based at the track on Market Street, Bury (opposite Bury College), Bury Athletic Club is a competitive nationally ranked athletics club with teams and individuals competing at the highest level.
We can provide you the opportunity to train and compete at whatever level you choose. We offer a fun running section for seniors, but we do stipulate that juniors commit to competing for the club.
You can be part of a friendly athletics club with all members enjoying taking part in a sport that provides the chance for everyone to find the event that suits them best.
We are always looking for new volunteers to join our brilliant group of coaches, officials and helpers (all volunteers) who give so generously of their time to make athletics happen in Bury.
