The club was formed as the result of a merger between Team Southampton and Southampton Running Club on April 1st 2010.
Team Southampton itself was formed as the result of a merger between Southampton City Athletics Club and Team Solent on October 1st 2004, with these clubs in turn evolving in the past from Southampton and Eastleigh AC and before that from the joining of Eastleigh Athletic Club and Southampton Amateur Athletic club.
Prior to this the clubs had a long and successful history in competition at both regional and national level representing the Southampton area and providing excellent opportunities for athletics in the region.
The clubs under their previous names have been based at the Southampton Sports Centre track since the early 1930’s providing opportunities for athletics for all ages in the Southampton City and wider Southampton area. The facilities at the Sports centre currently include a track, a small stand for spectators and some old portable cabins that are currently used as temporary facilities for the club to use on club nights and matches but which are close to the end of their useful lives. These have been in place and used by the clubs for over 20 years with the clubs having been granted by Southampton City Council the right to use the land on which they are based for that period of time. The track itself was last improved and relaid in 2010
The Club has never ceased to work for improved facilities in the area and has been influential in the upgrading of the Track and Field facilities at the Sports Centre and has also provided trackside accommodation.
