All Abilities

Jolly Running organise trail running events around the stunning Devon countryside and coast.

Our events are races for all running abilities from beginners to the most experienced runners.

The emphasis is on taking part and enjoying yourself. We aim to make our events fun, where every runner is important to us,
without you there is no us.

We encourage our events to be sociable, “jolly” gatherings where our love of running, events and enjoyment is the common bond.
