Adelaide University Athletics Club

What we do ...

The AU Athletics Club is a diverse social and competitive group filled with fun and friendly runners of all abilities. We have group training available 6 days a week catering for all your needs. Whether you are trying to run your first 5k to competing at the World Uni Champs, the AUAC has got you covered.

We compete at major events such as the City to Bay, Adelaide Marathon Festival, Relay for Life and Aus Uni Games. We also organise awesome specialty events such as Pub Runs, beach runs, club dinners and more!

Feel free to come and try before signing up, just let us know via emails or socials beforehand so we can be on the lookout.


When and where ...

Our HQ is the Graduates Club House in North Adelaide (meeting on the Western Side of the clubrooms by the door to our downstairs changeroooms), just a short walk from campus. We meet here Monday, Tuesday and Friday for trainings at 5:30 pm. Saturday's we have our Social Run Club meeting here at 9:00 am, we then head out for coffee post run. The Clubhouse has a change room where you can store your stuff and bike which we lock during our run, keeping everything nice and safe.
