Training

Tuesdays & Thursdays (Running/Track Sessions): 6:30-7:30pm meeting at the pavillion overlooking the athletics track at 6:15pm.

Make sure you join our Facebook page (Swansea Uni Athletics & Cross Country). No matter what day of the week it is someone will be training so keep an eye out for their posts on our page so you can choose the session for you.

We offer a range of sessions aimed at: Track and Field, Endurance and those looking to run more socially. 

Titan

This year we have teamed up with Titan Strength & Conditioning classes where we get a discounted session at £3.20

Classes are held: Wednesdays 06:30-7:30am. Fridays 18:00-19:15pm. Saturdays 08:15-09:15am.

These classes really are a great way to push yourself but also change up the routine of your training while helping your overall fitness.

Classes are held in the indoor running track which is located at the University Sports village, or The Shed on SIngleton Campus.

 

Races

As a club, we compete in various different races throughout the year including Track & Field events, Cross Country, as well as multi-terrain and various road races.

On the track we compete at BUCS championships (both indoors and outdoors) every year, taking a large team away for what always promises tobe a competitive and fun weekend. We also enter the South West Varsities (Summer and Winter) held at Exeter every November and March, as well as competing against Cardiff in the Welsh Varsity, which Athletics and XC won on 2018!

As well as these competitions, we also frequenlty have athletes travelling to local (and some not so local) open competitions and these are a great way to chase some PBs and meet new people.

Our Cross Country team compete at the annual BUCS Cross-Country Championship as well as in the local West Glamorgan & Gwent leagues, with races around every 2-3 weeks, usually on a Sunday. The entry fee is no more than £4, we try to make transport to these races as cheap as possible and then usually round off the day with a meal to enhance team bonding. The Cross Country season lasts from September to March and the Cross Country Captain will keep you updated about the fixtures. 

As a club we try to encourage the integration of both Athletics and Cross-Country. Opens are a great chance for the Cross-Country team to try their hand at different Track and Field events, many Track athletes try their hand at some longer distances and compete at the weekly local 5k parkrun which is free to enter and is a great way for beginners to get a feel for racing in a non-competetive environment.

As a club we say come along try your best, try something new and have fun!

We welcome and encourage members of all abilities to come and race for us!

Socials

Socials are held weekly for the first month of each semester and then fortnightly until the semester ends. The socials are a great way to meet new people and make new friends. There is usually a theme for socials chosen by the social secs so get rummaging in your fancy dress boxes! This Year our sponsor bar will Bambu!

We will also be hosting many sober socials!!
