Ayr Seaforth Athletic Club is a registered charity, operating as a non-profit, promoting the public participation in the sport of Athletics in Ayrshire and its communities.
The Club was founded in Ayr over 60 years ago, calling the Dam Park Stadium its home until November 2022 when it moved to the purpose-built Riverside Sports Arena. We have a long history of providing pathways for local athletes to compete up to national level, producing national champions and record holders in Track and Field, Cross Country, Road Running and Disability Sport.
To represent the inclusive nature of the Club and its role in the community we have a number of focussed initiatives in the Ayr North area, in which Riverside Sports Arena is situated. Our Club Development Officer has supported the work of South Ayrshire Council’s Active Schools team, including work with children and young people in Ayr Academy and its feeder primary schools. They are also leading free “Couch to 5K” sessions for local residents to support general health and wellbeing.
