Chippenham Harriers is a friendly running club based in Wiltshire. We have over 300 members and provide opportunities for runners of all levels to train, race and compete. Keeping the best interests of members at the forefront of our training sessions and events, we encourage club spirit, personal development and a shared love for running.
We meet on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday evenings at Chippenham Sports Club on Bristol Road. We also hold weekly Physical Preparation sessions on Mondays. These training nights are for runners aged 17 and over.
For those aged under 17, our Youth section meets on Wednesday evenings during school term time.
Friday’s training is aimed at people who can already cover distances of 4, 5 or 6 miles and would like some support to progress further. If you are new to running or would like to make a running ‘come back’ we recommend our Beginners Programme, held twice a year in the spring and autumn. If you can already run 4 to 6 miles comfortably but are new to the Harriers, Friday is a great evening to come along and join us for a social run.
There is free parking, changing rooms and showers at the Sports Club.
The club organises a number of races each year – Chippenham Half Marathon, Slaughterford 9, Lacock Relays, 5 Mile Road Race and Family Fun Runs and the 5K River Run and Family Fun Runs. Members can compete in the annual Club Championship.
As well as training, we also get together for social events throughout the year.
