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 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!

Please email if you require any further information.
