Introducing the British Athletics Supporters Club

The British Athletics Supporters Club (BASC) is the official body for fans of athletics in the UK. BASC liaises closely with the governing bodies of the sport, representing the views of supporters. The Club creates opportunities for members to meet athletes, coaches and officials, as well as making available priority and, where possible, discounted ticketing for major UK events. Members are kept informed via this website, emails and Backtrack, the club's magazine published four times a year.

More information is available on each of these aspects:

An important part of BASC's activities is to support grassroots athletics which it achieves in the following ways:-

  • BASC Awards - Annual awards to young athletes (both able bodied and IPC); special awards for outstanding performances by unfunded athletes; and much more
  • Bursaries - for coaches and support staff who demonstrate that funding will assist the development of youth athletics
  • Sponsoring prizes - for young athletes at single discipline events such as Vault Britain and The Javelin Carnival

The club occasionally produces limited merchandise for members. From time to time BASC also looks for commercial arrangements that benefit members such as discounted subscriptions to Athletics Weekly.

BASC is run by a committee of volunteers approved by our Annual General Meeting. Find out who's who below. Also various club documents including policies, legal and meeting records can be downloaded below (you will need Adobe Reader or a pdf viewer to access the documents on your device).
