About Us

Rugby & Northampton AC is one of the leading and most progressive athletic clubs in the Midlands, competing in Track & Field, Cross Country and Road Running at a local, regional & national level. Whatever your ability you are welcome to join the Club as an athlete, coach, official or volunteer helper.Ladies XC

The Club has a membership of over 1000 athletes, ranging in age from 8 years to over 80 years old. We also have over 80 coaches and 30 officials providing support to the athletes and helping them to achieve their personal goals, whether that is a local fun run or to compete in Rio 2016.

Rugby & Northampton AC utilise two main training venues. New training facilities are under construction for Northampton and the athletic track adjacent to the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Sports Centre, Bruce Williams Way, Rugby.

The Club hosts training sessions at both of these venues, with athletes being able to use both centres.


Due to the closure of the Sixfields track whilst construction work takes place and until the brand new Athletic track and facilities at Moulton Collage are complete, training locations for all squads are under the direction of individual Lead Coaches.

Details are available from any Northampton coach or can be requested via the general enquiries link here on the website or Dave Goddard, Coaching Co-Ordinator via dave.goddard7@btinternet.com
