The Bill Whistlecroft Memorial Hurdles Festival took place on Monday 21st April at Yeovil Athletics Arena under blue skies and with a good entry from many clubs. The results can be found on the Results page. It was a fun day of hurdling and steeplechasing with some great performances. We look forward to welcoming all competitors back in 2015, hopefully along with many new ones, as we look to make it an anual fixture.

Yeovil Olympiads Athletic Club - for fun and performance


With excellent facilities and a team of committed and qualified coaches, we are helping to produce many outstanding individual athletes who have gained national and international honours at senior and junior levels of competition. Our club was established in 1969 and has always enjoyed being amongst the leading clubs in the South West of England. In 2001, YOAC joined forces with Wells City Harriers and now enter combined teams for Track and Field as well as Cross Country and Road Running.


Our Facilities

We have always made good use of the council owned and managed track that was up-graded to an 8-lane "all weather" track in 1984. With Lottery and Sport England funding the track was refurbished in 2002 including the installation of floodlighting and the track was again refurbished in 2011. We run a small friendly clubhouse that provides changing facilities and a refreshment bar for members, guests and visiting athletes. The clubhouse was opened in June 1988 in memory of former member Joanna France from funds raised by the Joanna France Memorial Trust.


Our Partnerships

YOAC and South Somerset District Council work together to develop and promote athletics in the local community. This partnership is providing real optimism for the future of athletics in the area by supporting various initiatives such as Star:track athletic camps in the school holidays. Our members also provide support to the Sports:hall athletics programme promoted by Somerset Active Sport Partnership. These take place at Yeovil College and Stanchester School.


Senior Men's British Athletics League

This competition is for Senior and U20 Men. It is possible, however, for U17 Men to compete, with the League's approval, if the athlete has attained the Senior Grade 3 AAA standard or is capable of finishing in the top 3 of the A string.
