Welcome to Hastings Athletic Club

Hastings Athletic Club, founded in 1964, is based at the Ark Alexandra School athletics track.  We are affiliated to the South of England Athletic Association (SEAA), Sussex Athletic Association (Sussex AA) and England Athletics (EA) for Track and Field, Road Running and Cross Country.  We have a wealth of experience pooled together within the club and are committed to offering an inclusive, fair and safe place in which our athletes can participate and develop.  We welcome all abilities - our athletes range from those with international aspirations right through to social runners. 

Hastings Athletic Club is instrumental in promoting athletics in local schools and the community.  We welcome all abilities from 8 years of age and provide tailored sessions accordingly.  We are based at Ark Alexandra Academy Athletics Track (William Parker site) which has been the home of Hastings AC since 1976.

All our coaches are qualified and DBS checked and our training requirements are regularly reviewed.  As no athletics meeting can take place without a number of officials we are extremely proud that we have a group of qualified officials and willing helpers.  This enables us to successfully uphold the standard of meetings held at our track, and to assist other clubs throughout Sussex.  A number of social gatherings, including the annual awards evening, are arranged throughout the year, together with fund raising events to which all members, their families and friends are invited.
