The core of the Athletics Team trains at Sussex Downs College, Eastbourne twice a week. We also have athletes in Brighton that train at their local track.

We all come together to compete at four championships during the year. These are:

  • BUCS Cross Country Championships
  • BUCS Indoor Championships
  • BUCS Outdoor Championships
  • BUCS Multi-Events Championships 

All standards and abilties of athletes are welcome to come along and train with the team.

We have weekly socials in Eastbourne where everyone gets to know each other better and has lots of fun. 






Locations: Sports Park, Eastbourne (Sessions are run alongside Eastbourne Athletics Club)

Brighton students see below.

Type: Competitions and training

Details: We meet weekly to train for our disciplines. We also compete as the University of Brighton at BUCS indoor, outdoor and cross country events. If you are based in Brighton then get in touch as we can put you in touch with local training and can enter you as part of our team for competitions if you meet the minimum standards.

For contact information for all our clubs see the table on our main Student Club page.

Costs: £5 a year. Addiitional student contribution required for BUCS individual events.

Bronze off-site members access personal injury insurance.

Buy your Sports Federation Membership here once you know you are taking part in club activities.

You can take part in as many clubs as you like and can fit in. You only need to buy one membership which should be for the club that  requires the highest category membership. So if you do both a Silver and Bronze Off-Site club then you just need a Silver card. You need to buy a membership after your first session. Contact Sport Brighton if you have any questions.
