Okehampton Running Club (ORC) has over 100 members of all abilities and all ages who share one thing – a love of running!
Club nights are Tuesdays and Thursdays. There are five groups for different abilities running each night, so there should be one to suit you. Each group is taken out by a qualified leader to help guide you in your training.
Tuesday nights are steady runs, sometimes on road, sometimes through the woods and tracks. In the winter, we do head torch runs going out through the country lanes. In the summer, we have a separate group that meets up on moor, going fully off-road.
Thursday nights are technical sessions, aiming to build up stamina and speed. We do sprints, and distance loops, as well as hill reps and more.
When: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 6.15pm and train from 6.30-7.30pm
Where: Assemble at Pavilion in the Park, Mill Road, Okehampton. Devon. EX20 1GE
