Thinking of joining a rowing or running club? Then please get in touch.
The Harriers running sections offers opportunities for both recreational and competitive running and our Tuesday and Thursday night club runs are of mixed ability and pace (it really is a miss-conception you need to be quick to join a running club). Runners thinking of joining are welcome to come and try a couple of runs first to see if it’s for them.

Entering events and races:
It is important you list your club as Bideford AAC (not Bideford Blues or BAAC)
You must wear club kit at all races including club only events
Club kit is available to purchase from committee members at the clubhouse or the North Devon Hospice Shop in Chingswell Street, Bideford (essential for races but not training nights). View more information on club kit and prices here.
England Athletic Membership
Harrier club members also have the option to become registered with England Athletics. This runs from 1 April to 31 March annually, the membership cost is £15. The main benefit is that you receive a Competitors Licence number which usually gives you a minimum £2 discount per race you enter. It is becoming more common that you require EA registration to run races as affiliated to Bideford AAC. Therefore this additional membership is recommended if you take part in races throughout the year.
More information on England Athletics membership benefits
Members benefit from the use of the clubhouse which is equipped with a bar, fitness equipment, changing rooms, toilets, showers and games room. The bar is open most evenings and the prices are very reasonable, any profits go towards the running of the club.
Bideford AAC owns the clubhouse and the various sections pay their annual subscriptions to the club which in turn insures the building and looks after the property maintenance as well as running the bar and the club’s minibus.
