Welcome to Southport Waterloo Athletic Club

 

Welcome to the Home Page of Southport Waterloo AC. We hope you find your visit worthwhile.

 

We are a small and friendly club committed to making athletics fun whilst helping athletes to reach their full potential.

 

We have training and competition for all ages, male and female, in track & field, cross country, road relays, sportshall athletics and road running.

 

Our Open track & field meeting in late summer is proving increasingly popular with local and visiting athletes of all ages.

 

For schools, we organise the Sefton Junior Schools XC Championships for years 5 and 6 in March and host a series of 1 Mile races for school years 5 to 11 in May.

 

If you live in or around the Sefton or Knowsley areas of Merseyside or West Lancs why not join us?

 

We train in various places. Go to About Us for further information
