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 28th, May 26th and June 30th

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 around the same time (anyone running under 30 minutes will start in the 7pm group).  There is ample parking and most people tend to stay for a well deserved pint and some food. Club kit does not need to be worn for this. Why not try and do all three!

Erme Valley Relays -Friday 7th July 7pm

Ivybridge Rugby Club

A fantastic team event that's always popular with the Trotters!

Come and have a go at this 2.5 mile undulating course.  Each team consists of four runners, each running one leg. There are numerous categories and loads of prizes up for grabs. The event is organised by the Erme Valley Harriers and they had record numbers last year with some great running. It won't cost you a penny, as the Trotters pay your entry, there are great chips and a pint after too!

If you would like to give it a go, please let your team captains know:

Men's - Lance Mason lancemason55@hotmail.co.uk

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.
