Steyning Athletic Club was formed in 1951 to accommodate the walkers and other Athletes who at the time actively participated in race-walking and running in the Steyning area. The club has expanded and changed since those early days and now has its own premises in Charlton Street, Steyning, and caters for runners of all ages, triathletes and race walkers.

The Club has over 150 members ranging in age from 7 years to over 70. Our regular training nights are Tuesday and Thursday at 7:00pm at the club and a number of our athletes also meet on Sunday mornings at 9:30am for an early morning run. The triathletes have swimming training in the Steyning pool on Wednesday evenings at 7:30pm, and Saturday mornings at 9:00am and 10:00, which is often followed by a bike ride. We have a good selection of fitness equipment in our Charlton Street clubhouse, including weights, fitballs, medicine balls and training mats and hold a circuit training session every Wednesday evening at 6:00pm in the clubhouse. We have a number of qualified coaches covering all the disciplines supported by the club including race-walking, running , swimming, cycling and circuit training.
