The origins of Our Club

Our club took the name City of Hull Athletic Club when Hull Harriers and Hull Achilles Club amalgamated in 1970. In 2001 the club was re-constituted after a substantial number of its members elected to join forces with others across the city in the newly formed Kingston Athletic Club.

A large number of road and country runners did not wish to join the new set up and the name of the club and many of its competitions which had been running since the nineteenth century were continued under a new constitution. Indeed, we have laid claim, through our Hull Harriers lineage to have one of the longest athletic lineages in the country.
