- Bideford 10 Miler entries paused
Bideford Amateur Athletic Club are hugely disappointed to announce we have paused entries to our Bideford 10 Miler in November 2017. Due to major engineering and road works on the Torridge Bridge with a one-way diversion system in place over the Old Bideford Bridge, Devon County Council will no longer allow us to hold the race using our normal route. We are working hard to find an alternative route and if successful entries will be re-opened; however, if we need to cancel the race full refunds will be given. We thank you for your patience and will keep you updated.
- Start running with us!
Starting or re-starting to run in 2017? Why not come and join us on Tuesday or Thursday evening at 6pm from our clubhouse on The Pill. We really are a friendly bunch – you just need to be able to run three miles constant at a steady pace. For more information just get in touch.
- Club Kit
Club kit is available to purchase from committee members at the clubhouse or the North Devon Hospice shop in Chingswell Street in Bideford. More info on club kit

- Wimbleball Regatta 22 July 2017
It was a fantastic day of rowing for the Bideford Blues this weekend as they travelled the short distance to Wimbleball Lake for their annual regatta. Coming home with seven wins proves the club is going from strength to strength with rowers young and old putting in strong performances.
It was a well-deserved win for the men’s junior 16 crew who gained their first win of the season, the young crewof Tom Picillo, Jack Berry Berry, Toby Evans and Charlie Colwill have certainly put in the training and are nowstarting to reap the rewards.
Seven second positions and three thirds finished off ...
