Barnet and District Athletics Club is a longstanding one, having its roots way back to the end of the 19th century. The present club was officially formed in January 1967, with the amalgamation of Hampstead Harriers and New Barnet AC. Currently the membership totals just over 400, comprising people of both sexes, and with an active age range from 7 to 70 years old.
 
This later fact is significant, in that there is a very active Veterans Section. The club were the 1992 World Vets over 50 10km team champions, and the 1993 National Vets over 60 10 mile team champions. The club's young athletes compete in track and field in the summer through the Eastern Young Athletes League, and opportunities are available for competition in Open and Championship events. The Senior Men & Women now compete in the Southern League (track & field) and all members are encouraged to enter events at the regular London Inter Club Challenge and Quad Kids events. Senior members may also compete in the summer Mid-week Road Race League. During the winter months cross country and road racing opportunities abound as the Club competes in the Metropolitan (Senior), Chingford (Senior) and North West London (Young Athletes) Leagues, in addition to the numerous Championship and Open races and relays.
 
The club is very involved in Sportshall Athletics (indoor athletics for the younger age groups). The club encourages non-participants to become Supporter Members at much reduced rates. This enables them to attend social functions that are organised each year - discos, parties, quiz evenings, barbeques, etc.
