Welcome to the Avon Valley Runners Website
Avon Valley Runners are a Running club based in West Wiltshire. The club was founded in 1986 and currently has over 200 members of all abilities.
We meet at least three times a week at our training venues in Trowbridge, Melksham and Bradford-on-Avon with typically between 10-40 members running anywhere between 1 and 10 miles in different pace groups. We also have a Power Walking Group. Additionally members benefit from discount on Kinetica gym membership (currrently 10%).
Avon Valley Runners host a number of events throughout the year including the "Over the Hills" 12K Multi-Terrain Race, the "AVR Wiltshire Half Marathon" and the Avon Valley Relay, as well as assisting with the organisation of the Trowbridge Lions 10K and the Shaw Stampede.
