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. email@example.com
Come and join the Trotters for a fun, sunny week-end in Dinham Farm, St Minver, Wadebridge.

This is a great week-end not to be missed!
A 2.5 mile race in teams of 4 around the lanes of Ivybridge, starting and finishing at the Rugby Club. This is a great event and you can support your team mates aswell, whilst having a pint of cider and chips.
Anyone can have a go at this, no matter what your speed is, it is great fun.

Let's get a bumper number of teams together this year!
Don't miss this great day out with the Trotters. There is a bus booked (free to all members) to take us to the race, a great little scenic 10k with a bottle of beer for every finisher, that's an incentive!
We have a discount on the entry fee and if you have two marshal points from 2017 you get it free.
There's a pub lunch after the race and Kevin has put the menu choice on facebook, please let him have your orders and race entry asap.
Info on times of bus etc shortly.
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 7pm with the view that most people will finish closer together. (anyone running under 32 minutes will start at 7pm).
There is ample parking near by and a lot of people stay for a well deserved pint and some food. (please do not park in the pub unless you are planning to eat afterwards).
Club kit does not have to be worn for this event. Why not try and do all three and see how you improve!

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.
I bet that picture on the left has got the attention of all the Trottettes. Sorry Rog, they're not looking at you!
