Welcome to Gold Coast Victory Athletics Club

Gold Coast Victory was established on the Gold Coast in 1969, and since then we've had many of our athletes go on to represent Australia.

​Our Club caters for athletes of all abilities, and provides an opportunity to participate accordingly. Whether you are seeking to: make new friends through sport; learn new skills; become fitter and faster; or compete at the highest level possible; there is a place for you at Gold Coast Victory.

Age groups are based on the age the athlete turns in that calendar year, and we welcome athletes from 12 years of age and above.

The Gold Coast Athletics Club was founded in June 1969. During its initial decades, training venues underwent several changes, including an oval at Paradise Point, the TAFE College oval at Benowa, and the oval at Miami State High School.

In 1986, the Club relocated its training headquarters to Peter Hannan Athletics Track at Pizzey Park in Miami. The Club continued its operations there for twelve years. The Gold Coast Little Athletics Centre still utilizes this training venue today.

Established in 1998, the Gold Coast City Athletics Track occupies leased grounds from Griffith University Gold Coast, facilitated by the Gold Coast City Council. Positioned in Student Centre Lane at Griffith University, Southport, this facility serves as an all-weather training and competition venue.

In 1999, the Club shifted its training headquarters to the Gold Coast City Athletics Track. During the 1999/2000 season, the Club witnessed a nearly twofold increase in registrations, with membership numbers soaring to over 300 members at one point.

In 2006, the Club united with Victory Sports Athletics Club and formally adopted the name "Gold Coast Victory Athletics Club Inc" in July of the same year.

In 2013, a significant reconstruction and resurfacing of the track were carried out by the Gold Coast City Council (GCCC). The lease of the facility was subsequently transferred to Griffith University in 2015 by the GCCC.

After the conclusion of the 2018 Commonwealth Games, Griffith University opted to assume control of the Griffith University Track Facility. Challenges arising from the new management system implemented by the University led the Club to accept an offer from The Sports Super Centre at Runaway Bay to move its home base to their facility in January 2020.

That facility is now known as the Gold Coast Performance Centre.
