Birkenhead Athletic Club is a small friendly club that was formed in 1995 by a number of friends running around Bebington and other areas of the Wirral. The club maintains that same friendly atmosphere and new runners often comment on how welcoming the group is.
We don’t think anyone could have said it better than our Treasurer did in her Runner’s World letter of the month!
Although we support as many local events as possible, we sometimes venture further afield and have travelled to New York, Lisbon and Amsterdam to name a few! Some of our favourite memories are on display in our Races we loved page.
The club’s summer runs are a great way to experience fabulous local routes. There are events for members only such as club handicaps, our very own 5k in memory of Tony Bobby . We also take part in Borders league, multi-terrain and cross country events in the region.
We cater for runners of all standards. Why not come and join us? We can help you to get more out of your running, and if you are new to the Wirral, it’s a great way to see more of our beautiful local area. To join us for a run email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and one of the Committee members will respond to your enquiry. Please let us know that it is a website enquiry so that only one of us responds to you.
The membership fee is £20 per annum. The membership year runs from May to April, however, you can join any time of the year and membership fees are adjusted depending on when you join.
Affiliation with UK Athletics entitles you to a discount of £2 per eligible race entered. To take advantage of this you need to have your UK Athletics registration number to hand when entering races.
In addition to your membership fee, you would have to purchase a club T-shirt or vest to wear when representing the club at events. These can be purchased from our Chairman, Andy Waring and cost around £10. From time to time other club merchandise such as hoodies is also offered for sale and purchasing these items is entirely optional.
