In 2017-18 we celebrate 30 years of delivering life changing services to older people in Exeter. We had such great feedback after last years 80s Retro Run we've decided to do it again!

Age UK Exeter brings you the only 10k run to start in Exeter City Centre.
We've improved the route this year to take in the best of Exeter scenery. The new route will take runners down the High Street, into South Street, down Western Way and on to the Exeter Quayside. From here a beautiful and flat stretch along rivers, through parks and woodland and along the canal finishing near the Piazza Terracina. This race will suit regular runners and beginners due to the relatively flat terrain. All monies raised support older people across Exeter.

Watch this space for more exciting news coming soon!


Every year Age UK Exeter helps and supports over 5,000 older people and their families in the city. We help people living with dementia, people who are lonely and isolated and people who have no one to turn to. While we appreciate it's not always easy to raise sponsorship, we hope you understand that the money raised at this event is essential if we are to continue to support our most vulnerable older people. The people we support could be your neighbour, your parent, your partner or even you.
