Welcome to Ashford Athletic Club
"Please note that training times may vary currently due to Covid-19 restrictions. Any new athletes should initially use the contact link below.
Other changes and information will be added to the website, as we now hopefully start to move forward and can look to start training and competing again safely."
Ashford Athletic Club is one of Kent's best known and most active athletics clubs. We offer coaching and competition for a range of athletics events for all abilities and ages from Year 6.
We are now offering coaching sessions and enrolling would-be athletes from school years 5-6. This will introduce them to training sessions to be the best that they can be, whilst at the same time really enjoying athletics. These sessions will be held on a Thursday evening from 17:30-18:45. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We are based at the Julie Rose Stadium in Ashford, Kent. If you are interested in getting involved with athletics, whatever your level, please contact us to arrange an induction.
