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.

Many congratulations to Terry Lovett who won the Lifetime Achievement in Sport Award at the Bassetlaw Sports Awards and to Charmian Heaton who won the Senior Volunteer of the Year Award.  Well done also to Dave Maiden, Samuel Roberts and to Emma Dakin who were also nominated for awards! Very well deserved and fantastic news for Retford AC!!  In addition club President Dorothy Shirley Emerson was named as Greater Manchester Unsung Hero of the Year for her work at grass roots level to encourage children to play sport.
