Who Are We?
We are a friendly, Consett-based running club, established over 35 years ago, catering for runners of all abilities and experience. We have a growing membership from those simply wishing to keep fit and socialise, to those wanting to improve their personal performances, or enter competitive races. We are affiliated to the governing body for athletics in England, England Athletics.
We have UK Athletics qualified Coaches, Coaching Assistants and Leaders in Running and Fitness who are all fully licensed and CRB checked.
Our members compete in races both On and Off-Road, from 100m on the track, through to Ultra Distances. We also have Men’s, Women’s and Junior teams competing in the North East Harrier League at Cross Country and also on the Track.
When & Where We Meet
We are currently based at Consett Leisure Centre where the majority of our sessions will meet next to the War Memorial. Some sessions do meet elsewhere, so please check out the calendar or social media channels for further information. In addition, club members will often organise other “social” runs amongst themselves when club times clash.
If you think you might like to join us at Blackhill Bounders, you will find more information here.
