Competitions

Athletes can enter any Open competition as an London City AC member, and are responsible for registration, payment, conditions and travel. If we know athletes are attending we will look at having a coach available, but this may not always be possible. Most Open competitions require you to have an England Athletics license number and a Club vest.

Club vests are available to order at londoncityac.org/kit or by asking a coach. If you’re unsure if you have an England Athletics licence number please email [email protected] and we can check for you.

Please note

Sessions are outdoors and so are dependant on the weather conditions. Please arrived changed as we currently do not have changing facilities. If a session has to be cancelled a text/email will be sent as soon as possible. Payment must be made in advance of sessions and can be made in half-term blocks. Sessions cannot be carried over to the next half-term period if not attended. We cannot guarantee a place for your child if payment has not been made.

If you have any questions please contact Vikki McLachlan at [email protected]

All our Committee Members and Member Coaches are volunteers and give their time for the benefit of the athletes. Your membership and track fees are used for League Affiliations, Track Hire, Equipment, EA Coaches etc. In the event of track closure due to inclement weather, we are not able to offer refunds for pre-paid calendar term track fees.
