Adelaide University Athletics Club

The AU Athletics Club is a social running club catering for all levels. Alongside our casual park and beach runs, members take part in various charity and fun runs throughout the year, usually followed by social festivities.


What we do ...
The AU Athletics Club is a social running/walking club. We are currently non-competitive and meet three times a week for social runs/walks. The club takes part in various charity and fun runs throughout the year such as the City to Bay, Adelaide Marathon, and Relay for Life. We also arrange special running/walking sessions usually followed by a group meal, these include twilight runs along Glenelg (usually off the sand) and scenic runs through Morialta Park.

When and where ...
The Club meets three times a week at the Graduates Clubhouse in North Adelaide on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 5:15 pm for training, usually in the surrounding areas or along the Torrens. Any other special one-off training will be listed on our calendar and on our Facebook page. Click on our 'Calendar and Training' tab for more information
