Welcome to the Bideford Amateur Athletic Club locally known as Bideford Blues. Predominantly a running and rowing club we offer senior and junior recreational and competitive opportunities. We're friendly, sociable and warmly welcome members of all ages and abilities; our clubhouse offers our members excellent training and social facilities.

Bideford AAC is run on a voluntary basis with all coaches, officials, committee members and helpers giving their time for free.

The club was formed in 1870 as a gymnastic club and in 1897 the rowing section was born. It wasn’t until 1980 that Geoff Fanson and Barry White founded the present day Harriers running section.
