Hartlepool Athletics Club was originally founded in 2014 and after a brief and successful merge with Hartlepool Burn Road Harriers AC the club is now back in its traditional form.
We are Hartlepool's only athletics club to offer sessions for the local children of the town and now also adults running sessions.
We are officially affiliated with England Athletics.
Hartlepool's Outstanding Sports Club of the Year 2017!
'Our club aim is to increase the provision of physical activity for the local children of Hartlepool through athletics. Whether you prefer to run, throw, jump, sprint or all of those we can help you experience all the amazing events athletics has to offer'
The club sessions are offered by experienced local coaches who are committed to the UK Athletics coaching pathway to ensure the club offers the highest level of coaching possible.
The club is also committed to the development of our members as young people of the community. We offer Sports Leaders Programme which many experienced and successful sports coaches used as their first coaching qualification. We are also committed to giving back to our community and regularly work with local charities to help fund their brilliant community projects.
The training groups we offer are categorised in school year groups. Each year group has 2 training sessions scheduled per week and it is optional to enrol on both sessions although this also subject to places being available. Training will vary from each session with the event focus changing each week.
We also offer event specific training for those who have passion for a particularly aspect of athletics. We also offer a fantastic adults running group that meet 2x per week.
"I enjoy athletics because it keeps me fit and active and there is lots of events to choose. My favourite events are cross country running and long jump."
"The club is really friendly and welcoming, everyone helps and supports each other"
