Welcome to the Bere Alston Trekkers (BATs) website.

The BATs is a friendly community running club based in Bere Alston, we cater for all running abilities from beginner to the ultra runner.

We have over 100 members of mixed ages, sizes and abilities and welcome beginners all year round.  As well as being a running club we also raise money for charities through our running, our road race (The Bere Pen 10k) and our annual Bats Big Breakfast and so far, between us, we have raised over £25,000.

We believe that anyone should be given the opportunity to run and our coaches are always on hand to help and advise and other club members support each other.  We try to offer a session most days of the week with a longer run at the weekend and we are nearly always training for the next event (see our training page for schedules).

So if you are a seasoned runner looking for new routes and new running buddies, or thinking about giving running go, returned after a long break or just want to see if you like running, come along to one of our no obligation sessions.
