Teignbridge Trotters Running Club
Newton Abbot, Devon
Established 1982
Born to Run

Last to leave the bar!

The social scene within the club is as important as the running side, some would say more so. The Trotters have always had a reputation for being the last to leave the bar! 

We organise many different events throughout the year. There are the traditional old favourites as well as some exciting new ones. Please see below for the latest confirmed dates.

If you have an idea for a social event, please contact our Social Secretary, Ruth Johnson. radnorterrace1@hotmail.com

Sandygate Loop: Friday April 26th, May 31st, June 28th

Come and test yourself on this challenging 4 mile course that starts and finishes at the Sandygate Inn, Kingsteignton.  We stagger the start times at 6.50pm and 7.00pm for anyone running under 32 minutes (the idea being that most people will finish around the same time). 

There is ample parking on the road (Sandygate Mill), please don't park in the pub carpark. 

Club kit does not need to be worn for this event.  Why not try and do all three!

Club Camp - Friday 14th and Saturday 15th June

This is open to all Trotters and their families and this year is being held at Monkey Trees Campsite in Cornwall, between Newquay and Perranporth.

A great time is had by all, relaxing, playing games and usually a bit of running thrown in!

This is a family campsite with fantastic facilities and great beaches nearby.

Liz and Nigel have arranged a great discount for us at £24 a night per pitch, so get the date in your diary and get your money to Nigel!

Erme Valley Relays - Friday 5th July 7pm

 A 2.5 mile race in teams of 4 around the lanes of Ivybridge, starting and finishing at the Ivybridge Rugby Club.  This is a great event and you can support your team mates aswel, whilst having a pint of cider and chips!

Anyone can have a go at this, no matter what your speed, it is great fun.

This will be updated shortly

John Scott Trophy Race - Saturday 23rd November 3pm

This is a 4-mile handicap race which starts and finishes at the same place as the Sandygate Loop (on the bridge by the Sandygate Pub). The idea is that with the handicap system all runners should more or less finish around the same time.

Everyone that enters will be asked to bring a secret Santa gift for the value of £5, festively wrapped!

There will be a roast on offer at the Rec after the race. (more info to follow nearer the time)!

2019 Presentation and Awards Night - Saturday 14th December, Teignmouth Golf Club

Come along and dance the night away, you may even be lucky enough to bag a trophy!

Shaldon 3-Legged Race ~ Boxing Day

A real favourite with the Trotters.

What better way to get rid of all that Christmas pudding you ate the day before, than to tie yourself up to a fellow Trotter and run round Shaldon, calling in at the various watering holes and downing a swift half. Believe it or not, it's actually harder than it sounds. 

It starts at midday at the Ness House, you can register from 10:30am onwards. All money raised goes to charity.

It really is a fun afternoon for all the family.
