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


Our new winter meeting point for Tues and Weds sessions is the car park in Derwent Park, off Burnopfield Road, NE39 1LG. (Down the hill from the chippy, next to the sand play area.) See Where we meet and run

About us

We meet in Rowlands Gill and train in Gateshead’s beautiful Derwent Valley.

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?
