Boxing Day Road Race 2021

Clevedon AC is delighted to announce that the Boxing Day Road Race will return in 2021!

Further details and entries are available on the Boxing Day Race page.

Sadly we were unable to hold the event in 2020, but we are very happy to announce that it will be back for 2021.

Entries are now 'live' for this year's event, comprising the 4 mile race starting at 11am and the Juniors' 3km race for under-15s starting at 10:15am.

In addition to the online entry platform and postal entry form found here and entries taken on race morning, we will also be taking "cash only" entries on Thursday 23rd December at the Little Harp Inn between 3-6pm to reduce entry congestion on race day.

In accordance with UK Government guidance regarding Covid-19, we remind all competitors and spectators of their responsibility not to attend this event if displaying any form of Covid-19 symptoms. 

More details are available on the Boxing Day Race page, including full results from past events.

Introduction to Running

Like the Olympics, the 5k to 10k Improvers Course planned for this year has now been suspended until 2022.

Clevedon Athletic Club will be running a 5k to 10k Improvers Course, aimed at anyone who can run 5km and wants to get better.  If you enjoy Parkrun, have completed a Couch to 5k course, or just likes running a few miles for fun, this course will help you improve your fitness, form and finish times. 

If you are interested, please visit our Improvers page and complete our online application form and we will let you know when we can start the course.

Welcome to Clevedon AC

Clevedon Athletic Club is a thriving and friendly running club, based on the North Somerset coast-line 12 miles from the City of Bristol.

Formed in May 1977, we have gone from strength to strength and are now a major force to be reckoned with in the South West, regularly producing notable success on the road as well as team achievements in Relays and Cross Country leagues.

The club caters for all abilities from the age of 15 years and upwards.  The training is geared to your individual goals; working within a team environment to enable you to reach your potential.

Club training nights are held on Tuesday (summertime we meet at Clevedon Community School where our session is geared around the running track) and Thursday evenings throughout the year, meeting at Clevedon’s Strode Leisure Centre just before 7:00pm by the club notice board, as well as irregular sessions on Saturday and Sunday mornings.

We have organised the prestigious Clevedon 4 Mile Boxing Day Race since 1977 which now attracts 1,000 competitors, as well as the Midsummer 10k and the North Somerset Road Relays.  In 2014 we jointly launched the new Court Wood 5k series in conjunction with the Clevedon School sports department.

Our aim is to promote an enjoyable and rewarding interest in athletics for runners of all abilities in a safe and friendly team environment.

New members are always welcome.  Just contact any of the Committee for further details.
