A very warm welcome to Walton Athletic Club. Our club handbook has lots of useful information for both athletes and their families. Please do take the time to look at it and don’t hesitate to email us if you have any questions. This season, we are looking forward to competition in track and field, sportshall, cross country and road events, so do have a chat with your or your child’s coach if you would like to compete, or if you would like to help out – we have lots of opportunities for volunteers.
