MUAC Benefits


Membership of Melbourne University Athletic Club provides you with a unique range of competitive, training and social opportunities.

  • Automatic membership of Athletics Victoria, the governing body of track and field in Victoria.
  • Automatic membership of MU Sport, which provides a wide range of sporting facilities and services to the University of Melbourne community and its sporting clubs (athletes pay a reduced rate for gym access)

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

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.
