We’re a small, friendly club of mixed abilities and ages, joined together by our love of running.

Don’t forget to be safe and be seen, now that the nights are drawing in. Please wear reflective, brightly-coloured clothing, plus high visibility gear, to our training and social sessions. Head torch is vital for Thursday evenings. Please ask leaders or other members if you need help getting yourself equipped.

About us

We meet in Rowlands Gill and train in Gateshead’s beautiful Derwent Valley, part of the Land of Oak & Iron.

We have training session throughout the week, as well as regular social runs.

We are affiliated to England Athletics and our members enjoy running in road, trail, cross-country and fell races. Some of us do 5ks, some of us do marathons, some of us even get our kicks from ultras and triathlons.

New members are always welcome, whatever your ability. So what are you waiting for?

George Ogle Memorial Race 2017

We hold an annual race in the Derwent Valley.  Please watch out for details for 2018.
