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

Here comes the summer….

Light evenings are back, which means we can head off-road on our training sessions during the week. This does mean that our meeting location changes according to the planned session, so please contact us to find out where we will meet before heading out. Members can check our private Facebook group or group email for weekly bulletins.

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?
