Club Records


Performances that have been achieved while competing for the University in a team event are eligible for club record purposes. Open meetings do not count as students often enter these as representing their home athletics club and keeping track of this over past years is an impossible task.

Currently all BUCS events count, as do Steel Cup, Varsity and any other non-open events that we may compete in. For example, in the past there was a separate Northern Universities championships and there was an outdoor equivalent to the Steel Cup in Leeds about 8 years ago. Searching through archives is still ongoing, so if anyone knows of a performance that is not listed here then please get in touch with us  at

The records are for Indoor Track, Outdoor Track and also Road and Cross Country, both for Male and Female. Abbreviations used are:

UAU - Universities Athletics Union
BUSF - British Universities Sports Federation
BUSA - British Universities Sports Association
BUCS - British Universities & Colleges Sport

Cross Country


Individually, J.Hacking won in 1927 and Michael Hamilton won in 1936. Richard Newble won the UAU title and came 5th in the BUSF championships which were both part of the same race in 1967. In 1972, Sheffield won the UAU team prize but were second in the BUSF championships. 


Individually, Hatti Dean is our only female winner in 2005 and Sheffield won the overall team prize in 1997.



University Marathon championships started in the 1980s and our best performances in these championships are:

Male: Graham Gagg in 2011 with a time of 2.45.46
​Female: Jenn Dick in 2007 with a time of 3.09.45 


There was briefly a National University 10k road championships in the 80s but this failed to take off and we’ve seen no results with Sheffield athletes competing. However, in 2012, the University started a Varsity 10k race which counted as points towards Varsity. In 2016 this was cancelled and the 10k that counted towards Varsity was incorporated in the Neurocare Head Start 10k at Rother Valley Country Park. The fastest times since 2012 are: 

Male: Jonathan Collier in 2016 with a time of 32.35
Female: Becky Rigby in 2016 with a time of 35.47
