Everyone is welcome, no matter what your standard, and all of the club events are designed to give all an equal chance to excel.

We organise two local races, the Hoburne 5 and the Christmas 10k. Other local road races can be found on Run Britain.

Hoburne 5 1st October 2017


A big thank you to all the runners, helpers and sponsors that made such a successful Hoburne 5 2017.


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.


See for more info.
