Covid 19 - Update 7th July 2020
Under current Government regulation and England Athletic guidance we are currently operating on a very limited basis. Training and recruitment for our U9 age group has been suspended indefinitely. Older age group juniors are training on an invite basis in coaching groups of 5 or less and although recruitment to these age groups is not suspended there are currently no vacancies.
Senior training groups are operating semi-independently in groups of 6 or less and there is no current recruitment to these groups.
Welcome to Retford Athletic Club and thank you for checking out our website. This site has been developed to provide a general introduction to our club for anybody who is interested in athletics and running and is considering joining our club. It also provides ‘first point’ information for existing club members.
We have two Facebook pages for keeping people up to date with the latest news. An open site which anybody can access and a ‘closed’ junior site just for junior members and their parents.
The Club is happy to welcome new members of all abilities across the junior and senior sections. We also always need volunteers to help run the club and to train as coaches.
WHAT WE DO
From its humble beginnings the club now boasts road, cross country and fell running sections in the senior cohort and track and field, cross country and sportshall opportunities for the juniors.
We provide qualified coaches for all training groups and we provide athletic facilities and equipment for all disciplines except Hammer and Pole Vault.
