Welcome to Athletics Essendon Inc.

Athletics Essendon has grown from the merger of athletic clubs from the early days of athletics. These clubs were East Melbourne Harriers (EMH) established in 1895, Essendon Harriers est. 1897 and Essendon/Aberfeldie est. 1959.



Essendon has won the H. H. Hunter Shield for best overall performance at Victorian Championships in 5 of the past 7 seasons. In 2012-13 Essendon athletes won 5 Victorian Open championships and 3 Australian Open championships. Athletics Essendon is probably the only club in Australia who has had representatives at the last 13 Olympics and the last 13 Commonwealth Games. Plaques for 17 Olympians are erected on a wall at Moonee Valley Athletic Centre. The photos represent a few of the club’s champions..

The club provides its member with a track, gymnasium, coaches, competition and social events. To compete, athletes have to be registered and wear the uniform available for purchase at the club. Please visit the MEMBERSHIP page to join our club, and to read about Bill Burke Scholarships.
