The Sydney University Athletics Club, established in 1878, is one of the oldest athletics clubs in the country. The club is for athletes of all abilities from beginner level to elite, and from juniors to masters. The club has a proud history of strong performances at Australian University Games, including a long-held and healthy rivalry with the Universities of Queensland and Melbourne University. Currently we are the dominant Open Club in NSW winning Summer & Winter Premierships and Club Championships on a regular basis.
The Club competes in a wide range of competitions around Australia including national and state championships, Athletics NSW events, City2Surf and Gold Coast Marathon events across both the summer (track & field) and winter (cross country/road/walks) seasons.
SUAC holds many fantastic social events throughout the year. The Club organises annual tours to compete against Universities of Queensland and Melbourne as well as to international athletics events.
In March 2017 SUAC launched Target Tokyo, an ambitious 4 year program to provide our athletes with the best chance of making the Olympics and competing in Championship events against the world's best. A link to Target Tokyo can be found here
Absolutely anyone can compete for SUAC and joining is simple - visit the club website to find out how.
