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, Nigel 'It's my round' Barnett. nigel.barnett@hotmail.co.uk

Sandygate Loop: Not currently staged

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, depending on numbers of runners, 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 car park or on either side of the bridge (near the start line)

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

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.
