Welcome to the Colchester and Tendring Athletics Club
Situated at the heart of Britain's oldest recorded town is the home of Colchester and Tendring Athletics Club. We take pride in the level of coaching we provide our athletes and the dedication of the many volunteers behind the scenes. Our younger athletes are encouraged with training programmes that include elements of all disciplines through fun activities. As they progress through the club to U13's and upwards, the training is more focussed on specific events with tailored training programmes. Please visit this web site regularly for information on forthcoming matches, results and news.
