Durham University Athletics and Cross Country Club (DUAXC) is one of Team Durham’s medium-sized sports teams and caters for athletes of all abilities. Its current membership stands at approximately 150. DUAXC helps athletes to improve through regular training, with experienced coaches running sessions for sprinters, distance runners, and hurdlers. We have a number of competitive athletes who regularly compete on the national stage, but many of our members come to training simply to keep fit, have fun, and make new friends.
DUAXC has a close partnership with Durham City Harriers & AC. We train alongside DCH at Maiden Castle Sports Centre. Athletes who wish to focus exclusively on field events may wish to consider using the Gateshead indoor facility, located half an hour north of Durham by car.
