About us

Arena 80 AC is a Brighton & Hove based athletics club that focuses on running, especially road races from 5k to marathon.

Our members range from senior athletes (18 to 34 year olds) to masters (35+). The club welcomes and includes runners of all abilities and backgrounds who have one thing in common: a desire to be the best you can be. Our friendly, supportive approach has seen the club grow to over 200 members. 

As well as road racing, the club also participates in local, regional and national cross-country and track events. Our athletes have represented Sussex, England and Great Britain at various Championships and levels. During the year, the club puts on our own members-only races, as well as the public-entry Hove Prom 10k.

Arena 80 AC is a UKA, England Athletics and Sussex Athletics Affiliated Club.
