Anyone can take up running, we have members of all capabilities and new members are joining on a regular basis. Age is certainly no barrier to joining us.

You will soon get to know all our members and what sessions are available. You will also get to know of all our varied social activities.

If you are unsure about taking the plunge then please come along and try us for free for a couple of weeks.  Please note, if you do come along to try us, you won’t be able enter The Rec’s car park until you’re a member.  However, you can park for free in Cricketfield Road car park after 6pm, which is a short walk away  

Running Sessions are Monday and Wednesday 7:00pm at Newton Abbot Recreational Trust.

We cater for all abilities including absolute beginners.

If you are a beginner or coming back from a long term injury, please join our Coach to 5K group which takes place on a Monday and Wednesday night.

Monday sessions tend to be social runs, catering for a wide range of different paced group runs. There is certainly something for everyone.

Wednesday sessions tend to be more structured and will include specific sessions for Speed, Endurance and Hills as well as groups suitable for those who feel not quite ready for the main training efforts.

How the membership works. Our current fees per year are just £24 for an individual plus a one off £5 joining fee. Family rates are available where more than one member lives at the same address

In addition if you wish to register with England Athletics this is an additional £19 per individual (2024/25) and is payable separately through EA.

Once you have joined us you will also get access to our facebook group where many social runs at the weekend are arranged, often with cake involved as a reward!

A few of the many comments we receive from new members.

Just a quick thank you to everyone at Teignbridge Trotters, I’ve just done Great west run today in a PB of 1.46.26 my previous PB was 1.53.46 in Bideford a couple of years ago and I did Torbay this year in 2.06.33 where Big Mac finally convinced me to come along!!
Since joining Trotters I’m loving my running more than ever and I’m improving so much and having pace I thought I’d never get back...and to top it off running with such a great group & club! Jason Trevenen

Huge thank you to trotters for support. I just completed my first half marathon (GWR). I entered in April with no running experience- completed the couch to 5 K training app but by August was losing confidence at my capacity to do more. So I joined trotters which was brilliant. I was so inspired by trotters stories of resilience and your immensely impressive achievements. I also received so much encouragement from trotters when I sheepishly confessed my half marathon ambition. Well now I have done it!! (in a very slow 2 hours 40 mins ) . Brilliant group of people many thanks. Louise Lee-Gammage 

Everyone has been so lovely and supportive, and the atmosphere is so encouraging. Thanks for the recommendation Oli - you were very right! I love it! Miranda Stone

Can I say a huge thank you to every Trotter who has given advice and encouragement to me over the last few months. It was the best decision I ever made to join the club ... I finished my first half marathon and I am feeling very proud and was even prouder to wear the shirt.
Oh ... and I missed the photo at the start : AJ De Montjoie

I would firstly like to say a big thanks to all that I have already met in the last 4 weeks and have now joined the Trotters.
Gary Watson for egging me on to Join.
I am running this Sunday for the great west run with my new vest and can’t wait to represent the Trotters.
Thanks again

So 4 months ago I would never have believed that today I would be wearing a Trotters vest and running my first ever 10K. Thankyou to everyone who believed in me and for all the amazing Trotters that helped get me round today   Lorraine Kirtland

As some of you already know, my family and I are relocating next week to Tenbury Wells in Worcestershire. I just wanted to say a massive thank you to each and every Trotter for all the support, advice and general kicks up the arse that has given me such a love for running - one I never knew I'd have! I have met some great people - who I'm lucky enough to call friends and whilst I won't be able to attend regular training sessions I will be staying a member of this amazing club as without it I would never be able to say I've ran a marathon! A very special mention to Neil Pallant - who after many chats at the school gates encouraged me to do the Exeter Half Marathon and then to pop along to TT to give it a go! You are an amazing bunch of people who are so supportive to all abilities - it's no wonder that you are part of the best club in the world! Hoping to get to REC on Wednesday evening even if it's just for the foooooood!!!! Drop me a message if you're ever up my neck of the woods and need a place to crash! See some of you at C2S! On On Trotters!  Oli Prouse

A week ago I did my first ever race, the British 10k in London...so I have a personal best of 1hour 22mins and 30secs! I was really pleased and friends/family who know me were amazed! I couldn't have done it without Improvers Group on Mon and Wed. Thanks to all for your patience, advice and encouragement. I learned something from all the leaders, but a special 'shout out' goes to Richard Stephenson and Karen O'brien with whom I have run the most! Thank you! Vanessa Hurst

Can I just say.....after picking up on super supportive weekend social runs (you know who you are), the last Sandygate Loop, Torbay Half, Erme Valley Relays, Haytor Heller Recce Run and Chudleigh Carnival Road 'Almost' 6 Miles I'm really loving the Trotters family.....(all over again)! Thank you one and all 😉xxx Maggie Butt
