About Us

Be part of a historic club that brings together students from across London through athletics, cross country and triathlon.

The University of London Athletics club serves as a combining force for colleges within the University of London, and encourages cross-college socials and discussion, as well as competing at national and local competitions. We offer a platform for those studying all across London to come together and compete. 


The largest university colleges have their own athletics clubs, who we have partnered with to offer our members a place to train convenient to where they live. Find your nearest training location under the training tab.

Community and Competition

Our main focus as a club is to provide training, as well as access to national, regional and social running events, and serve as a hub for the inter-collegiate athletic community. 


The most important part of our competition side is competing at BUCS, the pinnacle of a university athlete’s career where competitors from universities all across the UK come together to compete.

BUCS events include: indoor athletics (held in February), cross country (held in February), sprint triathlon (held in April), outdoor athletics (held in May), standard distance triathlon (held in May), and duathlon (held in November).

Competing at the Highest Level

We are a club that prides ourselves on competitive success. We encourage athletes from across the University of London, including those with independent athletics clubs, to join together as a competitive force and take on the rest of the country.

Be A Part of Our Future

For athletes who have their own training groups or for athletes at King's or UCL, we've introduced an affiliation membership. This means you can still race for UL at BUCS and other events, but without access to training sessions.


UL Athletics is a club with a fantastic history and relevance to university athletics in London. Join us and make our future – become a part of that history.
