We are the home of Athletics at King’s College London
We are one club for all students who want to run, jump or throw – competitively, socially or just to stay fit. To cater to every single type of athlete we have many training session weekly. These sessions range from coached track and field sessions to massive Wednesday Bootcamp Runs round the River Thames, Sunday Long Runs, Saturday Parkruns, Friday Circuits and more!
We compete regionally against the other London university clubs throughout the year in the London Universities & Colleges Athletics (LUCA) competition programme which is open to all members no matter their ability should you desire, as well as nationally, where we compete at BUCS XC, Indoor and Outdoor Championship.

We offer 4 different types of memberships.
The competitive membership: This is our full membership at £65 it allows a member to train on Tuesdays and Thursdays from on 19:00 to 20:30 under a SACL coach from the 28th September to the 31st May (Including during term holidays) also Saturdays are free but numbers may be limited the sessions are un-coached but you still have access to the track for free on Saturday mornings, 10:00 until 11:30 . Also this membership is needed to compete at any competition such as BUCS and LUCA where you are representing the club as it includes a EA number for a member.
The social membership: A social membership gives access to any boot camp runs which are held every Wednesday at 2pm starting from Bush house or any social runs done in conjunction with other clubs/events . You can use the track at Southwark but will be charged each time per use (likely £6).
You will also be able enter competitions such LUCA should you choose so but will have to pay entry costs yourself.
The associate membership: ideally for any keen athlete that wishes to train with our friendly and inclusive club but is not a kings student, it holds the same benefits as a competitive membership but you can’t represent KCLAX at any competitions such as bucs and you will have to pay your own entry costs for competitions such as LUCA.
The Top-Up for triathlon membership: exclusively for full paying membership triathlon holders they have the same benefits as a full membership.
We are a friendly mixed-gender club that caters for everyone, whether you want to train up for your first 5/10k run, compete nationally, want to make new friends or just want to get away from the busy city and work, we are the club for you!
