Scunthorpe and District Athletic Club was formed to provide a better facility for all athletes in the town, allowing them to train and compete together, to increase the opportunity to compete in higher leagues and for individuals to meet their potential.
Today the aim is still to provide an environment where through personal effort, training and competition, every member of the club will have the opportunity to maximise their potential.
The club caters for and openly welcomes anyone from age 8 upwards of any ability, who has an interest in athletics.
The club is divided into a track and field section and a road running section.
Athletes have the opportunity if they choose to participate in numerous competitions throughout the season, whereby their skills are put to the test against athletes from all over the region.
The end of season is generally marked by the club championships, which although competitive, are also a bit of fun to encourage further participation.
