History of Club

Newcastle AC, formed in 1981, is a Hill Running Club, Road Running Club and Track Club, but is also much more than that.

Newcastle is arguably one of the premier clubs in Northern Ireland and indeed now one of the largest.

A glance through the present member’s list reads like a Irish Hill Running and Cross Country Who’s Who, with a World Champion, Internationals and the like among the ranks, but that would give a false impression of Newcastle AC’s origins and what Newcastle AC is still about today.

In essence, Newcastle AC is an association of like-minded people, enjoying all types of running for all it has to offer whether it is some crucial competition or a social event.

As such, Newcastle AC is now ‘home’ to a wide-range of eclectic and some say eccentric individuals. With the oldest competing member in his sixties, we’ve quite a range of runners, raconteurs and rogues.

There are many outstanding athletes of all sorts in the Club, as well as people talented in all sorts of diverse ways.

One of the features of the Club is that, whether champion or not, we are all enthusiasts. You will find mountain bikers, rock-climbers, orienteers and even a boxer among our membership, all eager to share their own interests and skills.

Time and again people have said that they joined the Club because of the friendly people and their attitude to running.

Newcastle AC’s strength lies in the diversity of its members and their interests.

We now have over 100 junior club members who are showing great talent and potential for the future. See our Junior Section for more details.
