• The Harriers running section of Bideford AAC was founded in 1980 by Geoff Fanson and Barrie White. We are affiliated to the South of England Athletic Association, England Athletics and the Association of Running Clubs.

    Our main club runs are on a Tuesday or Thursday night, 6pm from the clubhouse, and include runners of varying abilities and paces. If you are thinking of joining a running club then please get in touch and come and try a couple of runs. Whatever your standard of fitness you will be made more than welcome (it really is a miss-conception you need to be quick to join a running club).
