About the Bendigo University Athletics Club

We are Bendigo University Athletics Club (BUAC). Established in 1967, we are Bendigo’s biggest running club. The president is always ready to help new members settle in and enjoy their running.

The Summer Track Season gets under way around the time of Daylight Savings in October. Many Members compete in these events

In Winter, from March to September, we host timed, family-friendly running races in the bushland surrounding Bendigo. Races are on most Saturdays from 2pm over 4 distances. 500m for the littlies, 1km, 3km and our longer race averages 7km. Our winter handicap system enables every participant the chance to win the race. (Yes, that includes you.)

New members are always welcome.

In the Summer from October to March, the club is part of a larger more formal Athletics Bendigo track competition. If you contact the the president arrangements can be quickly made to get you running in a uni singlet.

In winter your first run is free. Our club races are a very informal affair, just come along to one of our runs, bring your running gear and any family or friends who might also be interested. The 2018 Season will commence in March so check back closer to the date for the firstevent details and turn up on the day.

Want to do some training during the week?

Great! There’s a host of informal and formal weekly running training groups. No matter what your running passion or level of ability is, there will be like-minded people for you to link up with in our club community. Most are free or at low cost, and run all year round.
