The Club is affiliated to England Athletics, ARC and FRA


Sidmouth Running Club was founded on the 13th January 2003 and continues to flourish from its headquarters at the Sailing Club situated at the eastern end of the esplanade.

The Club caters for all running capabilities and has a very friendly and social membership openly welcoming and encouraging new members to achieve their goals.

We are fortunate to be able to run in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and this is our training ground as we do not have the facilities for track and field but take part in a variety of local and national races.

Our current membership age range from juniors to senior members in their seventy’s.


We welcome runners visiting the area and offer them an open invitation to join us, Monday evenings where we all run together between 4 and 5 miles and Wednesday evening when we have 2,4, 6 and 6+ mile runs.

During the summer running is off road and on road in the winter.

Just turn up and introduce yourself.

See the training diary or calendar for times and start locations.

Mighty Green Ambassadors

Seven months in and there's 16 hardy souls remaining in the Mighty Green Ambassador Challenge. The variety of events the MGAs are reporting makes for interestiing reading. Everything from Bacchus marathons to the local Park Runs. Most Imaginative entry awards have to go to David and Claire for the club Swimathon!
As winter appraoches our club traditional off roaders are beginning to appear on the calendar- Bicton Blister (and Lite) and the Reindeer Run (10k and fun run) are club favourites for Nov and Dec. Other tempting events are listed in the “find a race” section of the “What’s On” tab.
If you’ve forgotten to record previous events don't worry it’s not too late- just complete the form.
What is it all about? The aim is for all club members to represent SRC at least once every month by taking part in a running event or by representing SRC as a volunteer at a race or social event. Each event only counts once (different park runs are counted as different events) and although the aim is for one each month you only need to collect 10 over the 12 month period (2 months allowed for holidays or injury). However only one event per month counts towards the 10.
