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 - date is set

Our increasingly popular Wickstead Wander returns for its 10th anniversary on Sun 25th Nov, 2018 and is Race #3 in the Wiltshire Off Road Race League. 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

As per previous years fancy dress is highly encouraged and we look forward to seeing how artistic / flamboyant the costumes are this year.
