This 6-mile trail race, now in its eighth year, explores Gateshead’s lovely Derwent Valley in the Land of Oak & Iron. The race will start and finish at Swalwell Juniors Football Club, Derwenthaugh Park, with free parking. The undulating mixed-terrain course includes sections of the Derwent Line and footpaths in local woodlands and fields and alongside the River Derwent. It is organised by Derwent Valley Running Club. The race is chip-timed and all online entrants will receive a finishers’ gift.
The George Ogle Memorial Race takes place each May, in memory of George Ogle, army runner, Tynedale Harrier and volunteer race official, who died in 2010. It is organised by Derwent Valley Running Club (formerly PB Fitness Running Club).
