No other athletics club can provide this combination of added value services.

2020/21 Season Details Coming Soon!


In an era of thriving suburban clubs, Melbourne University Athletic Club was originally set up in the nineteenth century for students and staff of the University who may no longer have had access to their home clubs. Today, the suburban club is largely a thing of the past and MUAC has opened its membership to the entire community.

Please email if you have any questions about the application process.

Aside from your annual membership fee, your only other costs may include uniforms, winter season race entries and State and National Championship entries (if qualified).  These costs compare favourably with nearly all other participation sports, making athletics one of the most inexpensive – and rewarding – pastimes.


Transferring from another club is a simple matter. Transferring now occurs online as you become a member
