Come run with us

We are a small, friendly running club located in Highworth near Swindon, catering for runners of all ages and abilities. Whether you want to compete in races from 5K to Marathon or simply have a gentle jog and chat, you'll find someone to join in with.

We meet on various days through the week with a session dedicated to beginners at 18:00 every Wednesday evening. Wherever you run please ensure you follow the HRC code of conduct; this document also contains a few common sense guidelines and states the club policy on other areas.

Wickstead Wander XI

The eleventh edition of this race once again proved popular with local runners on Sun 8th Dec. Despite the wet + muddy conditions underfoot all finishers reported an enjoyable (if tough) experience.

Provisional results are now available online.

This race is a truly unique event and we would like to thank all participants and supporters of this race; as in previous years all proceeds from this event are being donated to the R.D.A.
