Beverley Athletics Club has a short history dating back to February 1993. The club came about when newcomer to the area and keen runner, Peter Brown, suggested to the Leisure centre manager at the time, John Taylor, that in view of the number of people running around Beverley on their own there may be enough interest to form a running group at the leisure centre.
Mr Taylor paid for an advertisement to appear in the Beverley Advertiser inviting interested parties to attend a meeting at the leisure centre. As a result of 15 people attending the meeting and expressing an interest it was decided to trial group runs on a Wednesday evening. Despite attendance figures of less than half a dozen in the early weeks, number slowly picked up and a decision was taken to become an affiliated athletics club.
Since then annual membership figures have risen each year, topping 100 for the first time on 12th January 2020. Currently membership stands at approximately 180 and has extended to a thriving and successful juniors club of approximately 30.
