Radcliffe Athletic club exists to promote running in the town.
New members are always welcome whether they wish to run socially with friends,
competitively, or both.
To this end the club gives its members an annual challenge, that of getting to enough
road, fell and/or cross-country races in the club’s championship calendar to
qualify for a prize.
During the year there are various leagues and Grand Prix’s taking place
from club level to regional ability covering the three main areas within the club:
Fell Races, Road Races and Cross Country.
The club also ventures into relay races.Please see members on club nights for information.
Please let me know of any mistakes below and I will rectify them.
Vince Ashton – Webmaster
Please note: You must be a fully paid up member to qualify in League events.
When the club organise a race, the priority is to ensure there are enough marshals
on the day. If a Radcliffe AC member wishes to race in one of our own races,
then they must supply a marshal to take his/her place at the race.
The replacement person must be over 16 years of age
and have experience of marshalling. Failure to do so may result in Disqualification
League Road Races are now listed below and the race name will
link to an entry form. If there is no entry form, it is entry on the day only.
Official club vest must be worn in league races to qualify.
