WELCOME TO THE RETFORD AC WEBSITE
|The club was founded in 1983 by a small group of athletes mainly interested in road running and developing opportunities for Senior Athletes at club level. The juniors section was formed later to deliver basic skills in Athletics with some competition opportunities club level. |
The Club is always on the look out for new members of all abilities across the junior and senior sections, for new volunteers, and for people to train as coaches.
For more information please feel free to come down to one of our training sessions.

Following the AGM on Tuesday 30th April we have two vacancies on the Committee as follows:
These two roles are currently carried out by Gary Longden and Charmian Heaton in addition to their substantive roles as Chairman and Treasurer.
Following London 2012 the Junior section has grown enormously and it would be great to see more representation on the Committee who meet on the first Wednesday of each month.
