Welcome to Durham University Athletics and Cross Country
DUAXC is run by students, for students; with the aim to create a friendly but competitive environment.
We work in partnership with the local athletics club Durham City Harriers, who provide us with coaching and large groups to participate in. As one of the largest University sports clubs we are able to cater for a wide range of needs- from those looking to keep fit to those earning international honors! We welcome everyone and gear our sessions to people of all abilities.
Training takes place at Maiden Castle, where sessions range from sprints to cross-country and beyond. Throughout the year we participate in a wide range of events, click the ‘Fixtures’ button to see our key races!
Socials are a key part of the team atmosphere and a great way to meet new people- there are many traditions such as the ‘Full Kit Bar Crawl’ and Warm Weather Training trip to Lanzarote, whilst the Social Secs add their own spin to the calendar every year.
If you would like more information, or are interested in joining us, please contact us via the Website or out social media pages! For Fresher’s, look out for our table in the Fresher’s week fair and be sure to attend our pre-season day!
