Winners of 60 of the last 65 Mens and Womens outdoor BUCS Track and Field Championships, LSAC is by far the most successful student athletics club of the last four decades.

Ambitions of many athletes however are much higher and international stars such as Seb Coe, David Moorcroft, Paula Radcliffe, Steve Backley, Haley Tullet, Lisa Dobriskey and Chris Rawlinson are counted as alumni. Current student Harry Aikines-Aryeetey,  Bronze 4 x 100m Relay with Alumni Lisa Dobriskey, Silver 1500m and Martyn Rooney Silver 4 x 400m Relay competed at the World Championships along with 10 other former students.

LSAC has also provided 7 team members to the European U23 championships winning 3 Gold and 2 bronze medals. Most recently, former Loughborough student Robbie Grabarz (HJ) won Gold in Helsinki at the 2012 European Championships whilst Goldie Sayers (Javelin) finished 4th. A large number of former students and those who claim Loughborough as their base, have also been selected to represent Team GB at the London Olympic Games.

It is not all about Elite level performance however, with a membership of over 300 athletes, the club caters for a wide range of abilities from club and regional level athletes up to Olympic medal winners.

With a large coaching team and excellent Indoor, Outdoor and strength training facilities, the club has a busy cross-country, indoor and outdoor competitive programme open to all club members , with the additional highlight of the Annual International fixture against GB Juniors and International select teams.

The club trains in event groups throughout the week with generic club days on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Loughborough also host a UKA High Performance Centre which provides medical and coaching support for athletes on the World Class Podium/Development/Talent programmes, whilst there are also Loughborough University Scholarships along with 1st team squad support programmes that provide additional support services such as physiotherapy and sports massage.
