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.

Highworth 5 mile

The latest edition of the Highworth 5 mile race will take place on Sun 19th March; starting at 11:00 from Warneford School, Shrivenham road in Highworth.

We hope to once again attract a strong field; some will test their fitness ahead of the 'Spring marathon season', whilst others are determined to run up 'that damn hill'.

Entries are available online; alternatively you can downlaod an entry form to guarantee your place in one of the most popular 5 mile races in the South West.
