About Us

A fun and friendly club based at the Swansea University Sports Village

Welcome to Swansea University Athletics & Cross Country Club.

We cater to all abilities from beginners to international athletes, so everyone is welcome!

Whether you want to run to keep fit, improve your personal best or want to come along on our Wednesday socials and make some new friends, Swansea University Athletics & Cross Country is the club for you.

Social Media

We regularly use Social Media so come gives us a follow for regular updates and information regarding training, club & competition info!

As seen on our page, there are 3 different membership options - this is to tailor for all different needs! If you are not a student then you will need to purchase the 'Associate' membership in order to access the training etc included in the club! However, if you are a student, then you will need to purchase one of the two 'student' memberships depending on your wishes for the club:

Student Recreational Membership - This is a membership which entitles students to the training sessions and social events organised by the club, be that for long distance or sprints, throws or jumps! However, this membership does not allow you to compete for the University club in Athletics events. This membership is for those who would like to train and be a part of the club, but don't want to compete!

Student Competition Membership - This is a membership inclusive of all the perks of the 'Recreational' membership, with the added ability to compete for the University club. Due to (hopefully) this year being a post covid year with plenty of opportunities to compete, the extra £30 will enable the club to subsidise more for transport costs, allowing our members more opportunities to compete throughout the year at a reduced cost later!

So, in short they are:

  • Recreational - £30 

  • Associate (non students) -£60

  • Competitive -£60

*You must purchase the Sports Swansea membership (£30) as well as one of these options*


Thanks to our partnerships with the local athletics club, Swansea Harriers, we are able to offer you even more coaches covering all athletics and cross country disiplines.

*Main training nights are Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.


  • Wednesday: 4:30-6:00pm meeting in the indoor track. This session is run by our track captain for those who dont feel ready to join a coach, or who simply just want to get an extra session in.
  • Tuesdays & Thursdays: 6:30-7:30pm meeting at the finish line of the athletics track at 6:15pm.This session is run by Judith Gooding (coach) who specialises in 100m/200m sprints.


  • Mondays: 6:30-7:30pm meeting at the pavillion overlooking the athletics track at 6:15pm. This session is led by us. 
  • Wednesday: 4:30-6:00pm meeting in the indoor track. This session is also led by us.


  • please inquire about coaching times and contact details!  

Strength & Conditioning

  • Wednesday: 2:30-3:30pm we offer strength and conditioning coaching for our competitive athletes. A requirement for these sessions is the competition membership! See Facebook group for more information. 

Other Disciplines
We have a variety of coaches covering every discipline, take a look at our website for a full list of coaches and training available. 

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. 

Club Kit

Our kit supplier is the high quality athletics brand Joma Sport and we work with Total Teamwear to provide customisations that make your kit one of a kind. We do bulk orders in both October and January, so it is a prime opportunity to have the best-looking kit on campus.

Our vest is a classic and high quality Joma design with green into white fade. We traditionally do a kit order at the beginning of the year in October in preparation for BUCS XC and BUCS indoor and then another one in January in preparation for Varsity and BUCS Outdoors. 


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 to be a competitive and fun weekend. We also enter the South West Varsity (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 and 2019!

As well as these competitions, we also frequently 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 once a month, usually on a Saturday. 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 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!

We will also be hosting many sober socials!!

Cyfrangau Cymdeithasol

Rydyn ni'n defnyddio Cyfryngau Cymdeithasol yn aml felly dilyna ni am ddiweddariadau a gwybodaeth reolaidd. Mae gennym ni wefan NEWYDD SBON gyda rhagor o wybodaeth am y clwb, hyfforddi a chystadlaethau, hefyd.

Fel y gwelir ar ein tudalen, mae yna 3 opsiwn aelodaeth gwahanol - mae hyn i deilwra ar gyfer pob angen gwahanol! Os nad ydych chi'n fyfyriwr yna bydd angen i chi brynu'r aelodaeth 'Gysylltiol' er mwyn cyrchu'r hyfforddiant ac ati sydd wedi'i gynnwys yn y clwb! Fodd bynnag, os ydych chi'n fyfyriwr, yna bydd angen i chi brynu un o'r ddau aelodaeth 'myfyriwr' yn dibynnu ar eich dymuniadau ar gyfer y clwb:

Aelodaeth Hamdden Myfyrwyr - Aelodaeth yw hon sy'n rhoi hawl i fyfyrwyr gael y sesiynau hyfforddi a'r digwyddiadau cymdeithasol a drefnir gan y clwb, boed hynny am bellter hir neu sbrintiau, taflu neu neidio! Fodd bynnag, nid yw'r aelodaeth hon yn caniatáu ichi gystadlu am glwb y Brifysgol mewn digwyddiadau Athletau. Mae'r aelodaeth hon ar gyfer y rhai a hoffai hyfforddi a bod yn rhan o'r clwb, ond nad ydyn nhw eisiau cystadlu!

Aelodaeth Cystadleuaeth Myfyrwyr - Mae hon yn aelodaeth sy'n cynnwys holl fanteision yr aelodaeth 'Hamdden', gyda'r gallu ychwanegol i gystadlu am glwb y Brifysgol. Oherwydd (gobeithio) eleni fod yn flwyddyn ôl-gydnaws gyda digon o gyfleoedd i gystadlu, bydd y £ 10 ychwanegol yn galluogi'r clwb i sybsideiddio mwy ar gyfer costau cludiant, gan ganiatáu mwy o gyfleoedd i'n haelodau gystadlu trwy gydol y flwyddyn am gost is yn ddiweddarach!


Diolch i'n partneriaid gyda'r clwb athletau lleol, Swansea Harriers, mae modd i ni gynnig rhagor o hyfforddwyr o ran disgyblaethau athletau a thraws gwlad. Ein prif nosweithiau hyfforddi yw Dydd Llun, Dydd Mawrth a Dydd Iau. Mae rhestr lawn o'n hyfforddwyr a sesiynau hyfforddi ar ein gwefan.

Dydd Llun a Dydd Iau: 6:30-7:30pm cwrdd wrth linell gordden y trac athletau am 6:15pm. Mae'r sesiwn yn cael ei chynnal gan Judith Gooding sy'n arbenigo mewn sbrintiau 100m/200m.

Dydd Mercher a Dydd Iau: 6:30-7:30pm cwrdd wrth y pafiliwn yn edrych dros y trac athletau am 6:15pm. Ni sy'n cynnal y sesiwn hon. 

Disgyblaethau Eraill
Mae amryw o hyfforddwyr sy'n arbenigo mewn amryw o ddisgyblaethau. Mae rhestr lawn o hyfforddwyr a hyfforddi ar gael ar ein gwefan.

Ymuna â'n tudalen Facebook (Swansea Uni Athletics & Cross Country). Beth bynnag yw'r diwrnod, bydd rhywun yn hyfforddi felly cadwa lygaid am ddiweddariadau ar ein tudalen er mwyn dewis y sesiwn i ti.

Rydyn ni'n cynnig amryw o sesiynau sy'n anelu at: y Trac a'r Cau, Gwytnwch a'r rhai sydd am redeg yn gymdeithasol. 


Fel clwb, rydyn ni'n cystadlu mewn amryw o rasys drwy gydol y flwyddyn gan gynnwys digwyddiadau'r Trac a'r Cau, Traws Gwlad, yn ogystal â rasys yr heol ac aml-dir.

Ar y trac, rydyn ni'n cystadlu ym mhencampwriaethau BUCS (dan do a thu allan) bob blwyddyn, gan gymryd tîm mawr i ffwrdd am benwythnos cystadleuol a hwylus. Rydyn ni hefyd yn cystadlu yn Varsity'r De-orllewin (yn yr Haf a'r Gaeaf) sy'n cael eu cynnal yn Exeter bob mis Tachwedd a mis Mawrth, yn ogystal â chystadlu yn erbyn Caerdydd yn Varsity Cymru, a enillodd y Clwb Athletau a Thraws Gwlad yn 2018 a 2019!


Yn ogystal â'r cystadlaethau hyn, mae rhai o'n hathletwyr yn teithio i gystadlaethau agored lleol (a rhai sy'n bellach i ffwrdd) ac mae'r rhain yn gyfle gwych i guro amseroedd a chwrdd â phobl newydd.

Mae ein tîm Traws Gwlad yn cystadlu ym Mhencampwriaeth Draws Gwlad BUCS, yn ogystal â chynghreiriau Gorllewin Morgannwg a Gwent, gyda rasys pob 2-3 wythnos, fel arfer ar Ddydd Sul. Mae mynediad yn costio £4 neu lai, ac rydyn ni'n ceisio sicrhau bod trafnidiaeth i'r rasys mor rhad â phosib cyn mynd am bryd o fwyd i gymdeithasu gyda'r tîm. Mae'r tymor Traws Gwlad yn para o fis Medi i fis Mawrth a bydd y Capten Traws Gwlad yn darparu diweddariadau am rasys.

Fel clwb, rydyn ni'n ceisio annog integreiddiad Athletau a Thraws Gwlad. Mae sesiynau agored yn gyfle gwych i'r tîm Traws Gwlad roi gynnig ar ddigwyddiadau'r Trac a Chau, ac mae nifer o athletwyr y Trac yn ceisio pellterau hirach ac yn cystadlu yn y Parkrun 5k wythnosol lleol sy'n rhad ac am ddim ac yn ffordd dda i ddechreuwyr roi cynnig ar redeg mewn amgylchedd nad sy'n gystadleuol.

Fel clwb, rydyn ni'n annog pawb i ddod a rhoi cynnig ar rywbeth newydd a mwynhau!

Croeso i aelodau o bob gallu i redeg gyda ni!


Cyfarfodydd Cymdeithasol

Mae sosials yn cael eu cynnal bob wythnos am fis cyntaf bob tymor, wedyn pob pythefnos tan ddiwedd y tymor. Mae'r sosials yn ffordd wych o gwrdd â phobl newydd a gwneud ffrindiau. Fel arfer, mae thema i'r sosials sy'n cael ei dewis fan yr ysgrifenyddion cymdeithasol felly bydd cyfle i wisgo lan!

Byddwn ni hefyd yn cynnal nifer o sosials di-alcohol!
