Great West Run 2017

When: 15 October 2017

Fancy an exciting challenge this Autumn?

Exeter's Great West Run takes an exciting 13.1 miles route through the heart of Exeter. This half marathon has it all; a journey through the city centre, followed by pretty country lanes and stunning views across Exeter. New for 2017 the event also boasts a stadium finish, with the race village, and start/finish moving to Exeter Arena Athletics Stadium. 

Sign up to run the Great West Run for us and help raise vital funds to support the work we do for Deaf students.

Race start time: 9:00am

Minimum age: 17 years

For more information on the event please visit the Great West Run website.


Your fundraising directly benefits our Deaf students, many of whom have additional needs beyond their deafness.

We educate and care for Deaf young people aged 4-24, but we are not funded in the same way as state schools and so rely on fundraising for projects that would otherwise not happen.

Projects your sponsorship money could support include our Forest School, our new Grow Make Sell social enterprise, family sign language weekends and counselling.
