Welcome to Instinctive Sports
Formed in 1984, Instinctive Sports was formed by a group of people who were interested in keeping fit, and who started to meet informally on a regular basis. The emphasis from the beginning was on enjoyment, participation and encouraging people to become involved in running as physical exercise.
We have an even mix of male and female runners of all ages and abilities from 16 to 70 + We also have a ‘walking section’ who meet on Club night at Hele’s School. Our members regularly take part in organised races such as 10ks, half marathons, marathons and ultra marathons both in the local area and further afield. Instinctive Sports has an active social calendar and provides a way to make new friendships through the common interest in running.
Over the years we have raised many thousands of pounds for local charities including Guide Dogs for the Blind Association and our current designated charity, St Lukes Hospice.
The club has hosted various races in our history – the Guy Fawkes 10 mile run (until 2001), the Sam Penny Scenic Challenge six mile run (until 2008) and our current race, the Plym Valley Challenge (held in June). Proceeds from this event go to our designated charity (St Luke’s Hospice).
Club night is Tuesday at Hele’s School in Plympton. Longer runs are also organised for Sunday mornings from various locations around Plymouth and Dartmoor. In addition, training sessions are also held on Thursday evenings starting from the car park at Plymouth Argyle. In the summer, the Thursday runs are organised from various locations in the area.
New members are always welcome, from complete beginner to experienced runner!
