The Inbetweeners

The Inbetweeners are an informal running group meeting on a Monday and Wednesday evening at 6pm. You can find us on Facebook. We welcome people who are new to running but may be a little worried about joining a running club right away. We welcome people who want to run socially and meet other people who want to run without pressure to perform or race. We meet at different places local to Bodmin. Some of us are members of other local running clubs and some are not. We can signpost you to a local running club and support you with introductions if that is helpful. We do not charge any membership fees and are currently funded by Active Cornwall to support people to be active in the Bodmin area. We have qualified leaders in running fitness and follow guidance from England Athletics. We follow good practices and have a Covid Risk Officer with an up to date risk assessment in place. We complete a track and trace system at each session. We are a friendly and welcoming bunch!
