Club Home

We are a small (approx. 50 runners) friendly UK Athletics affiliated running club who meet at the East Christchurch Sports and Social Club, BH23 4JD for almost all club runs. Everyone is welcome, regardless of standard as our handicapping system enables everyone to be competitive at our club events. Our contact email is:

Our free Couch to 5k course (now in our 11th year) starts on Tuesday 16th April 2024 and will be at 18:00 on Tues & Thurs for 9 weeks contact us for further details.

The 2023 Christmas 10k race was cancelled, due to safety concerns resulting from significant flooding around the course. There are no plans for a Christmas 10k race in 2024
