About our club
Thanet Athletics Club caters for athletes from school year 3 to adults. We provide coaching in a wide range of athletics events and encourage multi-event training for athletes in year 9 and younger as recommended by British Athletics.
The club competes in a range of league competitions for athletes in years 6 to adults which promotes competition in a supportive team environment; and supports athletes to compete in open meetings, county and regional championship competitions.
In the 7 years since it was established numerous athletes have competed for the district and county teams and in 2016 we had our first national champion.
The club runs a number of events throughout the year e.g. primary schools sportshall, cross country, U11 competitions to encourage participation in the sport which are facilitated by our coaches, athletes and volunteers. Several athletes have subsequently trained as officials including one who will be officiating at the 2017 Athletics World Championships
