Head Torch Run – Friday 20th October

This Friday, 20th October, there will be a head torch run down the line to Lanchester -meeting in Morrisons car park for a 6:30pm start. Open to all abilities, this will be a relaxed social run with a tail runner, so no-one gets left behind!

Be sure to bring some pennies for refreshments afterwards, in the King’s Head, and runners will need to arrange their own transport/car-sharing back to Consett.

Great North Run Bus

Stuart Smith has kindly offered to organise Club transport for this year’s Great North Run, on Sunday 10th September, and a bus has now been booked.

Seats on the bus are primarily for Club members who are running this year’s race, on a “first come, first served” basis. If there are any spare seats, they will then be offered up to non-runners, friends and family – again, it’s “first come, first served”. If you would like a seat on the bus then drop us an email at info@blackhillbounders.com and we’ll pass it on to Stu.

Further details, such as cost and payment methods will be confirmed next week.

Chopwell Woods pubrun – Thursday 17th August

The next run in our Summer pubrun series will be this coming Thursday, 17th of August, when Eric Stamp will be leading a run around Chopwell woods.

The distance will be approximately 5 miles (with a few hills thrown in), and it will be ran at a nice steady pace with “run-backs” for you faster ones, so that no-one gets left behind! The route is all on good tracks and paths – trail shoes would be advisable if you have them, but old road shoes will be fine.

Meet in Lintzford layby (where the garden centre is – postcode NE39 1DG), for a 6:30 start. Afterwards, we’ll be popping back to the Derwent Walk Inn for refreshments. All welcome!
