About Us


  • Motivate each other to achieve our running goals
  • Build a healthy relationship with mental health and exercise
  • Encourage participation in running for charitable causes

Welcome to Cool Runnings – we are Exeter’s casual running society. We are a community for runners of all abilities; from our 5k programme to long distance training. We host running and non-running events, so even when you’re having a rest day or pick up an injury, you’re still part of the family.

We have a great range of runners on the committee who have trained themselves up from 5ks to marathons and can help you with your goals – we aren’t experts, but we have made all the mistakes before. Uni life is stressful at times - we know that whether you're going on a 20 minute jog or doing a longer training session, having the support network of likeminded runners will always give you a boost.


  • Friendly – we like a bit of competition sometimes, but our main aim is to run and make friends.
  • Willing to help out – sharing training tips and giving feedback to the Committee.
  • Inclusive – we don’t tolerate any form of discrimination.

We take equality and inclusivity seriously. We want to ensure our members and prospective members feel welcomed into our society.
