Our club is based in Barnstaple, North Devon. We meet at the Tarka Tennis Centre and have use their facilities, including a meeting area, changing rooms, showers and a cafe with bar.

Our aim

To enjoy the sport of running with an emphasis on enjoyment, that is not to say that we don't take the sport seriously. We recognise not everyone wants to be involved in competitive racing and may just be looking at running to provide a better level of fitness and a social scene to go with it. For those who are competitive; coaching, training and encouragement is given to ensure club members performances are enhanced.
