Though naturally nomadic, since 2017 we have gained a club base of sorts at the COACH centre, Taunton! We continue to have events or activities nearly every week during the season and try to get together when and where we can.

We have various meals and drinks together throughout the year:

  • Pub after our Saturday evening events (QOADS) and our summer evening training sessions
  • Our summer "club champs" and Xmas novelty events are open to all as is the sit down meal or buffet in the pub afterwards
  • Tea, cakes and our famous home made soup in a hired hall after our gruelling "Long O" runs
  • A barbeque open to all at the end of our summer training series
  • Other things we do:

    • Relay team series during the summer, often in the landscaped grounds of country houses or schools- all welcome. Why not bring the family for a picnic
    • Training camps and regional training squads for juniors
    • Car sharing and sometimes mini bus hire for events further afield
    • Meeting up at Parkruns (Longrun Meadow, Taunton)
    • Training sessions at halls and members' houses
    • Sharing accommodation while attending the big annual events all over the UK
    • Club tents and banners taken to these big events to congregate in / around
    • Running or walking the courses with your friends and family
    Wise after the event!
