The Matlock Athletic Club In Derbyshire

About Us

Formed in 1976 Matlock Athletic Club (MAC) provides 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. The monthly Whitworth Thread 5k park run as well has hosted a round of the Booth’s Decorators League XC series, 2 fell races and a triathlon.  We also give practical support to a number of other local races.

It’s giving Brian Howitt a mention. When you visit the website you find he has written a very comprehensive report on the history of the Matlock Athletic Club.

Needless to say, Matlock Athletic Club welcomes new members of any ability. The proof is in the pudding – and here’s the Welcome Pack
