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 these common sense guidelines.

As in previous years fancy-dress is highly encouraged with HRC donating all proceeds from the race to the R.D.A.
