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.

The 10th Wickstead Wander - provisional results

A big thank you to everyone who supported the tenth edition of our popular Wickstead Wander. It was great to see so many runners come out and embrace the challenges this event throws up - provisional results are now available online.

The event is organised by HRC on behalf of The R.D.A. (Riding for the Disabled) and all profits will go to supporting the riding at Wickstead Farm Equestrian Centre.
