Spring 2022 Meeting Times

We run regularly on a Monday and Wednesday night each week.


Monday night is usually an away run.  Wednesday night is usually a choice of a social or coached session, in Bere Alston.  The options are posted on Facebook on Sunday night or can be sent by email each week.  With Covid numbers still being high we continue to ask members to book a place on the run they wish to attend.

Supporting Ukraine

The Bere Peninsula has been busy raising money for those affected by the war in Ukraine.  On Wed 23rd March the club hosted a social run in support of Ukraine, with all participants encouraged to wear blue & yellow.  We raised £100 which we donated at the village Ukraine coffee morning. Our thanks go to all those that came out to run with us, and who donated generously.
