Joining us


If you’ve not been to any of our sessions before, come  along and try out a few first. We recommend that you start with the Tuesday Club Run session, which meets out front of the Leisure Centre, in Consett, at 6pm. Just say hello to someone, and make yourself known. You don’t need to train up just to make an appearance, and you will never be left behind. We have fast runners, we have slower runners, but mostly we have people that just enjoy their running.

Our Senior Membership fee is currently £25 one of the lowest in the North East.

£16 of that fee is your England Athletics registration.
