track and field



The Leeds Beckett Athletics club has seen some of the UK’s top athletes pass through its ranks from gold medal winning Team GB paralympian Kadeena Cox to double gold medal winning Team GB Triathlete Alistair Brownlee. Led by Head Coach Andrew Henderson the athletics team pride themselves on being a close-knit group ensuring everyone feels welcome whilst performing at the top of their game. The main focus of the track & field season is three major annual BUCS events including:

  • Cross Country
  • Indoor Track & Field Championships
  • Outdoor Track & Field Championships
