• The Harriers running section of Bideford AAC was founded in 1980 by Geoff Fanson and Barrie White.

    Our running sections offers opportunities for both recreational and competitive running and meet on Tuesday and Thursday evening at 6pm – you just need to be able to run three to five miles at a steady pace. Please get in touch and come down and try a few sessions before you become a member.

    We are affiliated to England Athletics, Association of Running Clubs and South of England Athletic Association,
