London City Athletics Club is based at the recently refurbished Southwark Athletics Centre in Southwark Park. We are affiliated to England Athletics and are a friendly, inclusive club offering opportunities for athletes and runners of all ages and abilities.


London City AC was formed in 2013 through a partnership between Southwark Council’s Sports and Leisure Team and volunteer members of the expanding local running community. Since this time the club has enjoyed substantial growth and success.

In October 2016 the track at Southwark Athletics Centre re-opened with London City AC as the host club – offering us a great facility from which to host track training sessions.

Our senior runners compete in the Surrey Road League during the summer and the Start Fitness Metropolitan Cross Country League during the winter. The club also regularly fields teams at other races and events including track & field fixtures and an annual club social trip to an overseas race.

Our junior club trains athletes aged 8 years and upwards. Supported by our highly experienced and enthusiastic qualified coaches, we aim to give young athletes the chance to try a range of disciplines, and offer opportunities for competing for those who wish to take part.
