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 and social runs & walks.

We are affiliated with Athletics West and work in partnership with Albany Little Athletics Club, Albany Athletic Group, City of Albany, local running clubs, local families and our generous sponsors. We are a not-for-profit sporting organisation of passionate volunteers promoting athletics and running in the community.

CROSS COUNTRY EVENT – Mt Adelaide – Sunday 14 August & Sunday 21 August

For the next two Sundays on 14 August and 21st August we’ll be running at Mt Adelaide.

Come join us this Sunday 14 August for a special joint club run with Denmark Running Club…it’s our turn to host!! We’ll have some treats and hot drinks available by donation with proceeds going towards a local Albany charity. A big thanks to our Race Director Andrew Collins, Craig Shiel & Basil Worner for marking the course, Jasmine Heslop for organising food, Tamara Boyle for many many jobs and the XC sub-committee for coordinating the next two events at Mt Adelaide.

LOCATION
We’ll meet at the carpark on the corner of Apex Drive and Forts Road. This course on “Irrerup” place of the sea offers an undulating bush trail which is popular for bush walking and mountain biking. Another thing we can tell you is that it’s got a few hills!! Follow the white flags on your right and red flags on your left with arrow markers at key junctions.

VOLUNTEERS
We will need some volunteers on the day to ensure we can run our cross country events – handing out number tokens, a photographer on the course and packing away. Please let Andrew, Tamara or Jasmine know if you can lend a hand with one of these jobs.
