About Steyning AC

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, now covering many disciplines, including Running, Race Walking, Swimming, Cycling, Triathlon, Circuits, Yoga and a thriving Junior section. The club has its own premises in Charlton Street, Steyning, and caters for athletes of all ages.
