About Bere Alston Trekkers
A Community Running Club
Bere AlstonTrekkers (BATs) is a friendly community running club based in Bere Alston. We cater for all abilities from beginners to the ultra runner.
We have over 50 members of mixed ages, sizes and abilities and welcome beginners all year round.
We believe that anyone should be given an opportunity to run and our coaches are always on hand to help and advise other club members support each other.
We aim to offer members:
a range of routes covering the local area, both road and trail
weekly coached sessions to suit all abilities
all within a friendly, supportive, inclusive environment.
So if you are a seasoned runner looking for new routes and new running buddies, or thinking about giving running a go, returned after a long break or just want to see if you like running, get in touch and come along to one of our no obligation sessions.
When do we run?
Whether you're brand new to running, intermediate, or skilled—we have a place for you. Join us at one of our meetups and become a part of our friendly club!
Wednesday night is our club run night, offering a range of runs to suit all abilities. Most weeks we offer one coached session and one social run. During the summer months we also include an away run in addition to the village based runs.
We meet in the village every Wed at 19:30 at the Bere Alston Primary School car park.
The last Wednesday of every month we meet in Trinity Hall and after the run there will be ta chance for club members to catch up with each other and the coaches, run leaders and committee and share tea & cake.
Our lovely coaches and run leaders deliver coached training sessions for us on Wednesday nights. Suitable for all ability they often feature hill training, speed sessions and interval training.
Also as a BATS member we can join in with the Armada coached sessions in Plymouth. Link to Armada?
