History

Brackley & District Running Club started life in early 2008 with a simple idea from a handful of likeminded individuals who saw an opportunity to bring together a community of local runners for the purpose of sharing training tips, resource and contributory skills for the benefit of everyone interested in the sport. The idea was soon underpinned by the efforts of a number of dedicated individuals and the continued support of a group of motivated and enthusiastic runners with a broad spectrum of running skills ranging from fun runners through to competitive racers.

The Club has been growing its membership and popularity amongst runners based in Brackley and the immediate surrounding area ever since then and is fast becoming recognised and acknowledged locally and at numerous race events.

In addition to encouraging others to get into the sport on a local basis, Brackley & District Running Club actively participate in a number of annual race events in the support of other running clubs to ensure overall support of the sport within the framework of the main Governing bodies.

We are not an elitist Club but neither do we simply 'dabble' in the sport.

We have a wide cross section of abilities with a number of competitive athletes but also just as many who are looking for general fitness maintenance, running safely in numbers and also to widen their circle of friends and share 'tips and tricks'
