The first Burnham Beeches Half Marathon was an off-road affair on the Portman Estate, over a course that included various obstacles including stiles! It was held on the 9th September 1980 and the winner was Graham Patton of Massey Ferguson in a time of 1:12:53. 1st female runner was Jill Standerwick of Porton Camp AC in 1:32:22. 346 runners competed. It is believed that the course may have been a bit short!
The following year the race HQ moved to Caldicot School, with a course through and around Burnham Beeches. Although there have been at least two course changes over the years, the modern event follows the same, successful, formula but now has a measurement certificate!
Burnham Joggers AC was one of the early wave of running clubs that became popular in the 1970s. The club meets every Tuesday and Thursday evening at Burnham Cricket Club, heading out for runs in and around the village of Burnham. In the summer we are priviledged to have access to the National Trust owned grounds of the Cliveden Estate and, of course, the beautiful, traffic-free, lanes of Burnham Beeches.
In addition the Half Marathon, the club hosts the Cliveden Cross Country just after Christmas and a private 5k event for local clubs in the spring, also at Caldicott School. Profits generated from these events are donated to local charites chosen by members. Each year some £5-10,000 are given to good causes by the club.
Twice a year the club hosts a beginners course. From zero to 5k in 8 weeks is the promise. Lead by members who are qualified running coaches, many graduates from this course go on to become members and make running a regular part of their lives.
A popular race in the region's running calander. The testing 6 mile event takes place in January each year - with the 2016 event selling out well in advance.
