Looking for someone to run or train with? Come and join our friendly club set near the heart of the City of Truro. The city, dominated by the three spires of the cathedral, and the surrounding rolling countryside give us plenty of fun and interesting places to run on and off road in the company of runners of all ages and abilities. Whether you’re a complete beginner, experienced athlete, a visitor to Cornwall, young or senior you’ll be warmly welcomed!

The club was formed in 1998 by a group of local runners training together for the London Marathon. Truro Rugby Football Club became their home and it’s where we still meet today. We have a regular, growing membership of over 130 runners, some of whom have been here since the beginning!
The club organises The Truro Half Marathon, part of the Cornish Grand Prix racing series, and supports the Truro Race For Life. As well as these prestigious events we also organise club runs, fun runs and local races like the New Year’s Day Brown Willy race on Bodmin Moor – for the die hards amongst us! But if running in the rough stuff on a freezing cold day with a New Year’s Eve hangover isn’t your thing, don’t worry plenty of us stay tucked up in bed for that one! After all, there’s always the Meet your Max race around Midsummer’s day at St Clement as a warmer alternative! There’s never any pressure to race, but support, professional advice and encouragement is always here if you do, so come and join us!
