People come to running at all stages of life and at all levels and ability from totally your first time to a recovering ex-runner or "used" to run but hey - life gets in the way right?

First and foremost we advise you consult your doctor to ensure that starting any exercise won't do you any harm - only good!

Join a running club or group

We are in Exmouth and we are FREE to join so if you are around - we are your club! Of course people move about but as we are free you can join any club you like and still run with us and the friends you will make here.

Running kit you'll need

To start off grab yourself a pair of running trainers. You don't need to break the bank - with experience and fitness you'll find out what suits you and then go spoil yourself!
