WHEN AND WHERE
The Club officially get together on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:30pm
In the summer the meeting point is at the car park behind the green spectator stand at the far end of Blaydon Rugby Football Club but when the nights get darker we meet in the lower car park for everyones safety.
Every runner will be involved in a pre run warm up, will set off in waves in their respective groups and will also be required to do a cool down session once the session is over.
We ask that you donate 50p each time you attend to help cover Club costs.
If any runners are unable to attend these times. Marianne and the other run leaders are available to do 1-2-1 running sessions with you for a small donation to the club. Many other runners also create their own little running groups at other times during the week
In the summer months and lighter evenings. we enjoy running around the scenic Derwent Valley but during the darker nights of the autumn and winter, we take our running to the paths where we are lit bystreet lights.
Feel free to contact the Club for further information.
