Park Running

Many of the Mighty Greens have been making the most of our local, and not so local, Park Runs.  With so many Devon Park Runs on our doorstep it would be rude not to participate in such a social and inclusive event.


Park Runs take place at 9am on Saturday Morning in the following Devon Locations and many more:

Seaton Esplanade 

Exmouth Seafront

Exeter Riverside

Haldon Forest

Parke National Trust

Killerton National Trust

You can find Park Runs across the world so please tell us if you participate in a more exotic one, just like Ann Cole did when she visited Cologne, Germany.

If Park Runs are your thing, you may be interested in reading a book by Devon author, Ian Mortimer,

Why Running Matters: Lessons in Life, Pain and Exhilaration From 5K to the Marathon

In his book Ian talks us through a whole year of running in Devon, from his home in Moretonhampstead.  He describes each run and reflects on why running is so valuable.

Park Run Group
Twelve SRC members met at Seaton on Saturday to run the club’s first group park run. A cool morning with great conditions for running. The usual warm friendly atmosphere from the Seaton volunteers and participants with 224 taking part in total. The Sidmouth contingent were lead by Chris Day-Kerry on a PB with Stuart Coles, Sally de Gruchy and Beccy Johnson on their first park runs and all doing really well. Special mention to Beccy who has just started with the beginners group and ran it in 35:19. 

David collects “U”

David Collects His “U”
David Skinner has now added a “U” to his Park run Alphabet at Upton House, Poole. With only 7 letters to go he is getting very close to achieving his target. However, the letters X and Z do not exist in the UK park run list, so perhaps a trip abroad is on the horizon? Well done David, keep it up.
