Welcome to our running group

About our group

Established in the summer term of 2015 as Exeter College Running Club , for College staff to follow a 'Couch to 5km' programme over the course of ten weeks.  The club continues to put on runs and events for staff and students at the college.  We have  evolved our offer included a community based club in the Town of Cranbrook, where we offer most of our regular runs.   Since establishing the club there in January 2018  we have trained over 300 people to run using the Couch to 5km programme.  In 2021 we changed our club name to Cranbrook Running Club to better represent who our members are and where the main base of operation is.   

The group is led by a number of run leaders all trained in Leadership in Running Fitness.  We provide friendly and supportive training  and we  love encouraging others to get in to running.

We meet twice weekly on Mondays and Wednesday at 18:30 and we also host the Cranbrook Country Park parkrun on Saturdays at 09:00 and the junior parkrun on Sundays, also at 09:00. 

Our runs are open to complete beginners and seasoned runners alike.  We offer the couch to 5km twice a year, and half marathon training once a year, leading up to the Great West Run.  Weekly runs are a mixture of 5km & 10km runs with event nights once a month.
