Bexley Athletic Club
Open to all, providing athletics for the community since 1954
Welcome to Bexley Athletic Club, where we are dedicated to the encouragement and promotion of athletics for all members of the local community. Our members range from the age of 7 to 80+, participating in training sessions and competitions across ‘Track and Field’ disciplines as well as Road Running and Cross Country running.
Whatever your level, Bexley AC is able to provide all athletes with a standard of coaching and competition which is right for you. We have many athletes who train and compete for fun, while some have progressed to the International stage. We also provide opportunities for those who wish to qualify as UK Athletics Coaches or Officials.
Note: Recent demand means that for some of our track and field groups there is a waiting list in operation. Many groups are unaffected but please contact the club first in order to check the current status before coming to visit us to avoid disappointment.
