About us:

Calne Running Club formed in 1992 by Mike Tawn and Dave Balkwill. They saw the opportunity to create a new club serving Calne and the surrounding area. Currently, Calne Running Club has around 150 members of all abilities, male, female, young and not so young. Our aims are to promote running as an enjoyable leisure activity with the opportunity to improve fitness and compete in the club and county championships and most of all to beat yourself and achieve your own personal goals.
