Welcome to our site. Here you’ll find all of the runs and events we are offering.


Established in the summer term of 2015 as Exeter College Running Club, delivering Couch to 5km programmes to college staff.  While that continues, the club quickly evolved, finding its home in Cranbrook, Devon, where we offer most of our regular runs.   

Since establishing the club in Cranbrook in 2018 we have trained over 400 people to run using the Couch to 5km programme, and delivered countless more runs to our members.

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 club 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 a week on Mondays & Wednesdays at 18:30 and are open to complete beginners and seasoned runners alike. Booking on to a run can be done on our Run Together page.  Weekly runs are a mixture of distances between 5km & 10km with groups to cater for most paces.

In addition to our weekly runs, we offer Couch to 5km once a year, 5km to 10km training programmes, half marathon training, leading up to the Great West Run, and regular trail runs. 

In Sept 2018 we took over the hosting of Cranbrook Country Park Family Fun Run & 5km event, gaining recognition in the national Running Awards 2020.

In 2019 we established the Cranbrook Country Park junior parkrun followed by the 5km version, Cranbrook Country Park parkrun in 2021. Both events are hosted weekly by members of the club and the local community.
