Albury Athletics conducts weekly competitions from October through to April for athletes of all abilities.
Athletes from the age of 11 years right through to Masters are most welcome and encouraged to attend to compete.
Located at the Les O’Brien Athletics Precinct, the club was established in 2000 and has since grown from strength to strength.
Over the past two seasons, Albury Athletics has had great success, with over 30 athletes competing at the Australian Championships, resulting in SIX national Champions.
The club has had THREE athletes also be selected to represent Australia.
The club and committee are passionate about improving the status of Athletics in the area and growing as a club. Hence their grant to “Keep Competition Local”.
In 2022, Albury Athletics applied for a $5,000 grant to upgrade their equipment to World Athlete Standards, to ensure our local talented superstars can achieve their national qualifiers without the extra costs of time and funds required to travel vast distances for training.
The groups long term goal is to be able to continually upgrade to be in a position where they are able to conduct large scale events here in Albury, which will draw athletes from the southeastern coast of Australia.
Albury Athletics acknowledges this would not only be beneficial for our local talent but have an economic benefit to the wider community.
On Saturday the 18th of March, board member Anthony Nicholson was invited to the Albury Athletics first State Permit Throw Event, which was an opportunity for the athletes to lock in their final chance to compete in the Australian Track & Field Championships in Brisbane.
