Grange Road, Christchurch,

BH23 4JD Dorset, UK

We are a small (approx. 50 runners) friendly running club who meet at the East Christchurch Sports and Social Club, BH23 4JD (mostly on Wednesdays - both lunchtime and evening) and also at local parkruns (Bournemouth, Moors Valley, Brockenhurst and Lymington).


Everyone is welcome, no matter what your standard and our handicapping system enables everyone to be competitive at our club events.


We organise two local races, the Hoburne 5 and the Christmas 10k. Upcoming local road races on Run Britain.


Please contact us ( with any enquiries.

Hoburne 5 30th September 2018


Entries are now open for the Hoburne 5 2018.


Last year the race raised £2900 for good causes:

£2700 to Bournemouth Leukaemia Fund*

£200 to Cancer Research UK


* boosted by contributions from: BAE Systems £750, the Roman Group £500 and Brewers Decorating £200


We also had some amazing sponsorship contributions which were used for positional prizes, spot prizes and goody bags.


Our beachball medaI has had mixed reviews, but please don't compare it with medals from races with much higher entry fees.


The new course was probably much the same for runners, but achieved our aims, as it was easier for us to manage, less awkward for road users on the course and easier for everyone to leave Hoburne Park. Alas, there was no opportunity to make it flatter.


The start time of 10:30 should lead to less traffic where the race passes the church. Thanks to some feedback from our marshals.


See Hoburne 5 for more info.
