I am very pleased to say we have launched this great event for 2015, our website is now up and running and the online entry system is ready to take your entries from 2pm Weds 18th November, join us for this fantastic new event.

The event has two options the first is a 53 mile run from Exeter Quayside to Babbacombe Downs via Berry Head.

The second a 23 mile run or walk from Exeter Quayside to Babbacombe Downs.

The route is stunning and hard to beat for the scenery and the places it passes through.

On Babbacombe Downs as well as the finish line, we will have a race village and family fun day open to all, with stalls, family entertainment, family games and live music. This is going to be a great day out for all the family.

Christmas Sparkle Day

We were very lucky to be invited to have our stand in Lower Union Street on Saturday for the Christmas event, our hard working volunteers put on children’s games, with the most popular being Hook a Duck and a tombola for all to play. They raised a fantastic £307.50 on the day.

Torbay Half Marathon THHN Fun Run & Schools Challenge 2015

We are delighted that after entering a big team in the fun run at this year’s Torbay Half Marathon in June, Torbay Athletic Club has asked if we would like to organise the fun run in 2015, to help us raise funds. We have gladly accepted and are working hard on the details for the run next June.

We are also working on a schools challenge to take place at the Half Marathon, the challenge is for the pupils to run a half marathon, wait don’t panic, they get to run the first 12 miles in the 12 weeks leading up to the event, then on the day of the Torbay Half Marathon they get to run the final mile along the actual half marathon course.

Our mascot Memory Maker Man will be making an appearance like this year.
