We have events or activities nearly every week during the season.

Occasionally we have social events and we try to share travel to the bigger events.

We have various meals and drinks together throughout the year:

  • Our summer "club champs", our AGM and Christmas novelty events are open to all as is the sit down meal or buffet in the pub afterwards
  • Pub after midweek MapRun events and sometimes after our summer evening training sessions
  • A barbeque open to all at the end of our summer training series
  • In the years when we've had it, we put on tea, cakes and our famous home made soup in a hired hall after our gruelling "Long O" runs
  • Where are we based?

    Everywhere and nowhere! Though naturally nomadic we temporarily gained a base of sorts at the COACH centre, Taunton in 2017 & 18.

    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 village 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!
