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. 


Everyone is welcome, regardless of standard as our handicapping system enables everyone to be competitive at our club events. Our next Couch to 5k course starts on 19 April 2022.

 

We organise two local races, the Hoburne 5 (late Sept/early Oct) and the Christmas 10k.  Results of Christchurch area results are on Power of Ten. Upcoming local road races are on runbritain.

Peter Collins

Very sadly we have heard of the sudden death of Peter Collins of Lytchett Manor Striders after a short illness. He was given the nickname Graffiti Pete by a local Hash House Harrier pack, because he cleaned graffiti and dirt from buildings, which included the restoration of Highcliffe Castle after many years of neglect.

Pete was known to those of us who had attended the half-marathon weekends in Bolbec, France. Pete was married to Nathalie, herself from Bolbec, who Pete met on one of these weekends. Pete was larger than life, great fun to be around and always had a 'bon mot' often delivered as a heckle. Behind this 'facade' Pete was a kind and generous man and a loving husband and father. We offer our condolences to Pete and Nathalie's families and all who knew him.
