RunAClub is a cloud-based, easy to use, administration system for people who run community clubs and groups.

It has all the essential support you need to set up and manage your own community club or network of clubs. Dorset County Council will distribute RunAClub licences free to community groups who would benefit from access to the system, as part of our commitment to building community capacity. Our aim is to support volunteer groups, or small voluntary sector organisations that do not have core infrastructure funding.
