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

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all our friends!

If you’d like to be part of #TeamDVRC in 2019 then you’d be very welcome to try out one of our sessions for free. For more information see the pages on our weekly training sessions and how to join.  Normal club training resumes in the week commencing Monday 7 January 2018. You’re welcome.

Bright lights for dark nights…

The dark nights are back!  That means that its important to wear bright, and if possible reflective, clothing to all our evening sessions. Head torches are essential for our Thursday social runs – if you need to borrow one, let us know so you can try one out.

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?
