Club Info


A handful of runners met in 1984 to form a running club starting off as mainly a senior middle distance group but which has grown over the years to over 400 members in 2015 with activities ranging from cross country, road running and multi-terrain right through to indoor sportshall athletics and track and field including: sprints, jumps, throws, hurdles and even the pole vault and hammer. Our age range is now from the under 11’s right through to an ever increasing band of veterans with several in their 70’s and even one octogenarian.

Chichester Runners and AC are affiliated to: UK Athletics, AAA, South of England AA, Sussex County AA, Southern Men's and Women's Athletic League, McDonald's Young Athletic League for Boys and Girls and Sussex and Hampshire Cross Country Leagues.

We welcome all abilities from beginners to seasoned runners.
