Coronavirus Statement (updated 17 March)

Our governing body England Athletics have issued the following statement and we will be suspending ALL club activities immediately until at least the end of April.

We have a duty of care to you, our members, as well as thinking about the health and safety of our families and the wider community.

The committee will issue further direction once we have it. Please take note and look after yourselves.

Anniversary run – 8TH march 2020

This Sunday, 8th March 2020   we are staging our Anniversary Run.  The run this year will be slightly different to previous years, but it gives us the chance to use the new Consett Heritage Trail.

https://visitconsett.co.uk/home-page/heritage-trail/

Our plan is to meet at the Bowls Club in Blackhill Park at 10.00am and follow the trail for 6/7 miles you are welcome to do more if you want.

The aim is to have a socialable run for all, including Juniors who will be doing a slightly shorter run.

When we get back to the Bowls Club we are having / providing bacon rolls and teas and coffee for everyone.  Please feel free to bring anything else.  The bar will also be open!

We fully expect there to be some muddy stretches of running which plenty of us enjoy, although the carpet in the Bowls Club might not cope so well so it would be worth having spare shoes. 

Hope to see you all there at 10.00am!

Thank you

PIER TO PIER

Reminder – As agreed at the AGM there will be a bus for the Pier to Pier which is on Sunday 17 May 2020.


We visit a pub for Sunday lunch, a beer or two plus there will be a domino handicap and a quiz.

28 Bounders have entered so far though it would be better if more entered to make the bus more cost effective. It’s a good warm up run as well for Edinburgh so why not give it a go! There’s still time to enter via this link http://my.raceresult.com/141844/info?lang=en

Mike Swainson will be sharing details of the cost, bus pick up and drop off times shortly. Once these details are released he will then be taking names for the bus. Thank you.
