Matlock Athletic Club


Formed in 1976, Matlock Athletic Club provides competition for runners of all ages and abilities from the recreational runner to the competitive athlete. Based at the Arc Leisure Centre in Matlock with the beautiful Derbyshire scenery on our doorstep, training nights are Mondays at 6.00pm and Thursdays at 6.30pm. The club has a very active social and racing programme and hosts the popular White Peak Marathon and Half Marathon, two annual fell races, a round of the Derby Runner BDL series, the hugely popular Peak Rail 7 'Runner versus Steam' event, the monthly Whitworth Thread 5k and an annual triathlon, and also gives practical support to a number of other local races.
