Always wanted to run, but never tried? Been away from running for a while? Are you 12 or over?* Then our beginners’ group is for you.

If you do get the bug, you can join our club to continue your running journey – Derwent Valley Running Club is a friendly club for all ages and abilities, based in Rowlands Gill.

*Please note: Under 16s to be accompanied by an adult.

The course is led by England Athletics-qualified run leaders who can remember just how it feels to get started!

Here’s how some of our members sum up their experience of doing the course:

 “Completing the couch to 5k with DVRC last year has been the best thing. I’m healthier, fitter and happier and still loving running”

” I never used to enjoy running with other people, now I don’t like running on my own”
