Developing Outstanding Athletes


At Athletics Essendon we welcome new members to our friendly, competitive and supportive club atmosphere. Since the turn of the century the club has had a ratio of 2 females for every 3 male members with the ratio gradually approaching parity.

Since 2000, 12 female members and 14 males have represented the club at International meets.

The club membership includes a diverse range of ethnic groups.

Athletics Essendon has the rare distinction of having representatives at the last 14 Olympic and Commonwealth Games. Plaques for our 17 Olympians are erected on a wall at Moonee Valley Athletic Centre.

Athletics Essendon has won the H. H. Hunter Shield for best overall performance at Victorian Championships in 9 of the past 13 seasons including the most recent – 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018.
