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:

Monday social runs of approximately 5km start at 6pm from the club house in Grange Road. Non-members are welcome to contact the club for further details, or just turn up and see if this is for you.

Our free Couch to 5k course is normally arranged for just after Easter each year.  Again at 18:00 on Tues &Thurs for 9 weeks contact us for further details.

We have a calendar of Weds & Fri training events and club races (see below)

We also organise two local races, the Hoburne 5 (CANCELLED for 2023) and the Christmas 10k.  [RESULTS 2022]

Results of Christchurch area results are on Power of Ten. Upcoming local road races are on runbritain.
