Welcome to CUAC

Welcome to CUAC. The Cambridge University Athletics Club is the world's oldest athletics club. For over 100 years, training with CUAC has been a vital part of studying at such an academically rigorous university as Cambridge. This continues today, as the CUAC family welcomes and supports its members to become the very best athletes they can be, in a friendly and lively community. CUAC is one of the University's largest sporting societies, and we pride ourselves on the diversity of athletes who constitute the club.

Athletics is a sport that truly captures what it means to do your best. Our mission at CUAC is to create an inclusive environment in which each athlete, regardless of their standard, can flourish. Whether you have been doing Track and Field since before you can remember, or are a complete novice keen to try something new, there is a place for you in CUAC.

United by the burning desire to defeat O*ford, CUAC places great value on team spirit, and this is something that has differentiated us over the years. It is this team spirit which means the relationships you make through CUAC last many years.

CUAC is about getting involved, training hard, doing your best, and bringing that best together with others to be the strongest team we can be.

We hope you will join us.
