Addicted to Athletics? You are not alone!
The British Athletics Supporters Club is a nationwide collection of devoted athletics fans. We consist of everyone; from ex-pro athletes and athlete’s families to sport loving families and absolute newcomers to track and field.
The club seeks to get as many people enjoying athletics as possible and to build a community in which to share our passions, news and opinions. BASC travels all over the world to follow our team - and we get the best seats, deals and travel tips at home and abroad with the help of Track and Field Tours and Claridon Sports Tours.
So whether you want to see athletics around the globe, get within touching distance of your heroes or meet our patron athlete Katharine Merry - join us today and get involved!

Awards, Events and Publications
The Club make several annual awards for both athletes and coaches. These are awarded to show the athletes our appreciation for their efforts over the past year. Junior athletes are also supported and encouraged as recipients of our awards.
We also run a Bursary Scheme whereby small bursaries are awarded to coaches and officials in order to facilitate their support for athletics.
The Club publishes a magazine – “Backtrack” - three times a year, which feature articles on recent events and competitions as well as articles on past and present athletes and members’ news and correspondence.
Through its partners the Club is able to offer early booking facilities to members for all main athletic events, both at home and abroad. As well as a range of venue tickets, our partners are able to provide travel and hotel packages for these events.
