Athletes past, present and future

The British Athletics Supporters Club annual dinner weekend has become a highlight of the year for members. The opportunity to meet socially, to mix with athletes - past and current - and others involved in this great sport.

The process of arranging each weekend starts straight after reviewing the previous event.

The weekend can be as flexible as you want - members are welcome to attend just the Dinner, stay on Friday or Saturday only or to stay the whole weekend.

Booking forms are included in the Backtrack inserts sent out to members.
