Thetford AC

Thetford Athletic Club was originally formed in 1974. The Club has grown in recent years and now boasts over 100 members. We compete in a wide variety of events including track and field, Sportshall, cross country, and, in more recent times, adventure racing and Ultra Marathoning.

The club is affiliated to the governing bodies of England Athletics, British Athletics, Athletics Norfolk and South of England AAA.

The club has both a junior and senior section. The junior club welcomes prospective members of all standards from age 8 upwards. Juniors compete in track & field in the summer months and cross-country in the winter months. Coaching is provided by experienced UK Athletics qualified coaches in all disciplines - sprints, hurdles, jumps, middle & long distance and throws.
