Scottish Athletics Club of the year 2011!
The present EAC was formed in 2007 uniting Edinburgh's two most successful clubs The City of Edinburgh Athletics club and Edinburgh Southern Harriers (women). Both clubs have their roots in the 19th century when Queen Victoria was on the throne. Over the century the clubs earned lots of success and produced many Scottish and several British champions, a special pride to Wyndham Halswelle (Olympic 400m Champion London 1908) and Allan Wells (Olympic 100m Champion Moscow 1980).
The transition to the present club was exceedingly smooth with an immediate good relationship between officials and athletes.
