Dates for Your Diaries

1-Lord-Crewe-Arms-Blanchland-Inn-Hotel-Restaurant-NorthumberlandBlanchland pubrun

The next in our very popular series of pubruns, will take place on Thursday 28th May.

Starting at 7:00pm from the top car park in Blanchland (just past the tearooms), it will be a 5 mile off-road route, ran at a steady pace – a perfect introduction to off-road running for those who haven’t tried it. Then afterwards, back to the Lord Crewe Arms for refreshments. Trail shoes, or old road shoes are recommended, and it would be a good idea to fetch a light windproof/showerproof jacket with you just in case it’s needed.

Gibside pastyrun

800px-Cornish_pasty_-_cutThe next Gibside pastyrun will take place Friday 5th June.

As usual, we’ll be departing from Shotley Bridge Station (on the Derwent Walk) at 6:30pm for a steady 6ish mile run down to Gibside. There may also be an option to start from Belle Vue at 6pm if anyone fancies it.

Please fetch a change of clothing, or something warm to wear whilst at Gibside – there’s usually a car or two to transport your bags. You will also need to bring pennies for your pasty and beer, and just in case there aren’t enough spaces in cars returning to Consett, you should also fetch your bus fare home.

Pasties need to be pre-ordered, so please leave a comment below. There is a choice of Cornish, or cheese and onion.
