ABOUT US

ABOUT OUR CLUB 

The Albany Athletics Club is a community of diverse abilities who get together for physical exercise and friendly competition throughout the year. We believe in building a healthy and active community by combining physical exercise with the outdoors. The Club has a friendly and relaxed atmosphere and welcomes all abilities at our Club events. We aim for personal bests and some good-natured rivalry between those more serious athletes, runners and walkers. We offer participants competitive events as well as opportunities to develop fitness and improve technique through training sessions.

We are affiliated with Athletics West and Masters Athletics WA, and work in partnership with Albany Little Athletics Club, Albany Athletic Group, City of Albany, running clubs such as Denmark Running Club and Perth Frontrunners, local families, property and farmland owners, and our generous sponsors. We are a not-for-profit sporting organisation of passionate volunteers promoting athletics and running in the community.

Each year we host the Great Southern’s largest running event on the Sunday of the June WA Day long weekend – the Albany Retravision Elleker Running Festival. In 2024 we are proud to host our 28th Elleker Running Festival.
