Run by and for its members
Derwent Valley Running Club is an independent club run by and for its members. Everyone involved in making the club what it is are volunteers and we could not exist without them!
Many of us play a role, whether that’s on the committee, sorting club kit, helping with publicity, leading training, devising training plans, organising our annual race or keeping a busy social diary. If you would like to get more involved, just ask!
Here’s our club email address or speak to us at training: firstname.lastname@example.org
We have a club committee who helps to run the club on behalf of members. They meet 3-4 times a year. We all meet together once a year for an annual general meeting (AGM).
The club also has a team of qualified running coaches and leaders in running fitness, as well as a range of other volunteer roles.
Our club constitution sets out how we collectively run the club and make decisions. A copy is available here: Club Constitution
