Welcome to
Alchester Running Club

We are a very friendly running club based in Bicester, formed in 1999 to develop road, cross country and trail running in the Bicester area for all ages (over 18) and abilities. We actively encourage the social as well as the competitive aspect of the sport and whilst we like competition we try not to take things too seriously.
