Most of our members are primarily involved with Road Running covering all distances up to Marathons/Ultras, although some members do take part in cross-country, fell and track races. We cover a wide range of abilities, some are at top end of races while others run just for fun or simply to keep fit.
We recommend that you start with the Tuesday Club Run session, which meets at the front of the Leisure Centre, in Consett, at 6pm.
You might prefer to get in touch first, ideally via our contact form or via Facebook or just turn up and introduce yourself on a Tuesday.
Our Membership fee for new members is currently £25 one of the lowest in the North East.
