Welcome to Adderbury Running Club

Adderbury Running club (ARC) is a friendly village club, we welcome all abilities to join us on our runs across the beautiful local trails. We offer support, motivation and encouragement from run leaders and members and are UKA affiliated

Welcome to Adderbury Running Club! We are a friendly bunch of people of all ages and abilities who share a love of running. We like to run across the fields using local footpaths and trails, making the most of the beautiful area we live in. Our members have joined for many different reasons – it might be for general fitness, for the pleasure of regular social contact, for competing in races or challenging themselves to do something new. Whatever the motivation, everyone is warmly welcomed and supported in what they want to achieve.

Our Calendar

We meet on Sunday mornings and Tuesday evenings, come rain or shine. In the summer, we head over the fields; in the dark winter evenings, we make use of Banbury’s streets and parks to work on speed and hills. We are keen supporters of ParkRun, too, and can often be found at the Spiceball Park on a Saturday morning. For more information, go to our Membership page.


Many of our members enjoy participating in races, both local and further afield. We belong to Oxfordshire Athletics and we organise our own annual 10K and half-marathon event in Adderbury, the Three Spires. We also have a club championship. On the social side, we get together in a local pub every couple of months to share running tales and tips (and much else) and occasionally enjoy a well-earned post-run breakfast together!


Our Members’ Forum provides information about races and social events and is also the place to find advice on training, fitness, injury prevention and nutrition. All members are welcome to contribute to it: the more we share, the more we all benefit. Our privacy policy falls in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and you can read the privacy notice here. 

If you think this sounds like the club for you, do come along to a couple of sessions to try us out – just let us know you’re coming so we can be sure to give you a warm welcome (email Caroline at carolinerichards19@gmail.com). If you have never run before and would like to start, you can sign up to our Beginners course (see Membership page for details).

Our motto is ‘No one gets left behind’!
