Welcome to Diss Athletics Club Website
Diss Athletics Club provides all disciplines of athletic training and competition to the people of Diss and the surrounding district. We welcome anyone aged nine years and over regardless of ability. Unfortunately we are not able to accept anyone under the age of 9. Our younger members practice in all track and field events and cross country while some of our older athletes prefer to specialise in their chosen events. We compete regularly throughout the year with track and field events through the summer and cross country during the winter months. We encourage all of our members to compete although it is not compulsory.
Diss Athletics Club was established in 1952 by local teacher Reg Wright so that the local people could still participate in athletics after they left school. Reg remained coaching at the club until his retirement in 2008. The Track & Field section is now run under the leadership of coaching co-ordinator and head coach Barry Palmer, with coaches Gordon Coe and Craig Palmer.
Our road running section is run under the leadership of coaching co-ordinator Marie Kemp with Daren Rosamond. Road runners train Tuesday 7pm - 8pm. New members are very welcome.
Our junior section trains fifty weeks a year - on Tuesday 6.30 - 8.00 pm at the Sports Ground, Shelfanger Road, Diss. Due to our popularity we currently have a waiting list for junior members so if you think you might like to try athletics then please contact us

Due to coaches leaving the club we are down to 2 coaches and 1 assistant coach in the junior section of the club. With not much help coming forward from parents as well this has left us with no choice but to limit the number of members this year. As from1st Aprilwhich is renewal time priority must be given to those members who have competed at track and field competitions or cross country and have trained regularly at club on Tuesday and Thursday but not sportshall because we did not affilliate this year.
Sorry this is going to happen but we have to keep to England athletics rules on numbers.
What We Do
Training and competition for Track and Field Athletics and Cross Country for anyone aged 9 and over and Road Running for anyone aged 18 years and over.
We train on Tuesday evenings from 6.30 - 8.00pm at The Sports Ground, Shelfanger Rd, Diss.
