About Us


The club was established when Rod Dudley placed an advertisement in the Border Mail in August 2000, asking for interested parties in forming a Senior athletic club in Albury, based at Alexandra Park, to attend the meeting at the SS&A Club.

From that meeting, Border Track & Field Club was formed, the inaugural Exuective Committee, was Rod Dudley (President), Richard Welsh (Vice-President), Kerry Lloyd (Secretary) and Al Taylor (Treasurer). Mark Fornosiero, designed the club logo, and won tickets to the 2001 Grand Prix in Melbourne.

The club had varying degrees of sucess over the formative years, with members competing at Victorian Country Championships, Athletics Victoria State Championships and National Championships.

Originally the club competed on an ad-hoc basis with Wodonga Athletic Club on a Sunday morning. As the club grew, the committee at the time, with input of members, decided to go it alone with regular competitions, as the Sunday morning programs had diminishing numbers for a variety of reasons, after a number of years trying different days and times, a Saturday afternoon competition was settled on.

In 2015, it was agreed by the committee to change the name of the club to Albury Athletics, to give the club a better geograhical identity.

The club has built to a point now, where it has in excess of one hundred members, we have regular Saturday afternoon competitions, and good representation at Victorian Country Championships, Athletics Victoria State Championships and National Championships.

Over the last few years we have intrduced two awards, the first, in 2019/20, the Les O’Brien Memorial Award, named after Les for his contribution as an administrator, coach and official of the club prior to his untimely passing in 2017,  presented to the athlete that achieves the most number of Season Best performances at Albury Athletics local weekly competitions, and in 2023, the Richard Welsh Club Person of the Year Award, Richard was the club Clubs first Vice -president, and President in the clubs second year, and to this day still involved in athletics, which is recognition to a member for their contribution to Albury Athletics and it’s members.
