Given the uncertainty and the national lockdown that is in place, it is regrettable that we have been required to close the club for club sessions which we have been enjoying for some months. Updated 8th January 2021. Keep an eye out on Facebook for our Lockdown Challenges.
At Okehampton Running Club (ORC) we offer a range of training and running groups, from beginners to super fast, from 12 years upwards. We have also started in 2019 a Junior Athletics section called ORC Juniors.
The details of each of the run groups are available within the Running Group pages.
All the run sessions are led by qualified England Athletics run leaders or run coaches. These coaches have successfully completed any one or more of the training qualifications so that they are part of a pathway into the coaching hierarchy within England Athletics and UK Athletics.
We also provide safe trail running using local footpaths as well as access to the wide open space of Dartmoor which is on our doorstep.
To join the club you must be able to run at least three miles without stopping – if you can’t, we run a beginners running group once a year which will help to get you started.
Whatever your challenge, come and join a friendly group of like-minded people and become part of team ORC!
