OWLS Athletics Club

“OWLS AC…The most progressive club to come out of the 1980s running boom”
The club was inspired to set up this league with a sharp focus on supporting the progress of improvers. We hope that all spectators and runners will get behind all of those running and make them feel their efforts are appreciated.
These youngsters can be tomorrow’s champions if we can maintain their interest through the years!

About the club
The OWLS AC was formed in 1982 and have been at the forefront of Leicestershire athletics for over two decades producing some of the countries best young and senior athletes. The club has award winning coaches and has made history on numerous occasions. OWLS AC have won the senior cross country title a remarkable 21 years in succession and have won many National Titles. They also beat Loughborough and Birmingham University in the UKS strongest Cross country league…the only Leicestershire club ever to do this.
However, our overriding philosophy is one that acknowledges effort as an equal of ability. Our experience is that so many youngsters who start with limited success early on come through to be great club runners and occasional internationals. We have seen this so many times it has almost become a physical law!
Quite a part from any competitive success, we believe that our sport can provide a fantastic lifestyle for all those who enter into it.
The club takes part in a full range of competitions at all ages and for all abilities. This includes Cross country, track and indoor sports hall athletics.
