Mendip AC was founded in July 2003. The needs of senior athletes in and around the Mendip region were adequately met by long-established clubs – from Weston in the West to Frome in the East. High-profile successes for British athletes had fuelled a resurgence in interest in athletics amongst juniors and while most athletics clubs had junior sections few could meet the demand. And so it was against this backdrop that the idea for a new ‘junior athletics focused’ club came about.

The inaugural training session for the club was held on 8th July 2003 at Elmhurst School – Street. 52 athletes attended that evening and the club had it’s first 27 members – Mendip AC was born!

We are a friendly, welcoming club and cater for all abilities – from recreational athletics to national level. We have a number of training sessions throughout the week covering all aspects of athletics from body conditioning to endurance and field events. As a club we are highly competitive but also want our youngsters to enjoy athletics at their own level and pace. We encourage all members to “have a go” and enjoy the sport.

Please view the training sessions page for a list of all training times and days. New members are always warmly welcomed.
