About Us

We are based at Monkton Stadium, Dene Terrace, Jarrow, a stadium run and managed by South Tyneside Council providing excellent facilities for the club as well as the local community.

We are a friendly club with a mix of experienced athletes, coaches and people at all levels of sport who enjoy all aspects of athletics.

We have a great tradition of sport at Jarrow and we are one of the top clubs in the North East, producing Olympic medalists, Great British international athletes and world class coaching at all age groups.

All disciplines of athletics are covered. The stadium has a full 8-lane running track, long-jump and triple jump pits, high jump, pole vault, javelin, discus, hammer and shot facilities.

Coaching is available for all club members and club nights are Tuesday and Thursday from 6pm until 8pm when the club also has use of the indoor sports hall which has a four lane track, long jump, triple jump, high jump and pole vault.

Club athletes are allowed to use the outside track for free any time it is available, on production of a valid club membership card.

We’re actively looking for new members at every level so if you have a love of athletics and want to join a friendly club or just want to find out more, come along to Monkton Stadium where you can chat to club members and pick up a club membership form from the stadium reception.
