About

Based in one of Melbourne’s Bayside towns and founded in 1942, the Mentone Athletic Club has a proud history of producing highly successful and competitive athletes.

Mentone Athletic Club has a culture built on camaraderie, fitness and fun for senior athletes aged 13+ with a varying range of fitness and abilities. We have coaching for summer and winter events, including middle distance running, sprinting, pole vault, hammer, discus and other throwing and jumping events. We can also boast some internationally competitive athletes who are only too willing to offer advice and guidance to other Mentone athletes.

Our teams and athletes compete throughout the year in the Blue Region Interclub (Shield Competition) and Victorian and Australian Track and Field Championships as well as in XCR Athletics Victoria’s premier Cross Country and Road series during the winter season.

Our club provides a supportive environment for serious athletes to train with highly qualified and experienced coaches.  We have some of the best specialist throwing and pole vault coaches!  The club also caters for athletes of all abilities and is proud to support our paralympians.

If you are a regular fun runner or interested in training with other runners, our middle distance group is a great place to start if you are new to club running.  Many of these athletes also compete in our cross country team during the Winter season.  This group trains on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 7pm.

Mentone Athletic Club is always looking for new members to join our friendly Club and enjoy the community spirit. We encourage members of the community interested in joining the Club to email us or visit on one of our training days and introduce yourself to a committee member or a coach.
