Our members run in various races during the year. The majority of weekends we have runners competing in races throughout the North East. Distances of races vary from 10k's, half marathons, 5k's, full marathon and various other distances.
Throughout the year the running club will put a club bus where we have a good attendance of runners at that particular running race. Then we stay for a few hours after the race socialising in a nearby pub from the finish. In 2016 we will be having 8 buses on to races. January - Brass Monkey Half marathon, York. March - Coniston 14mile race, Cumbria. May Sunderland 10k & Half marathon - Also in May - Pier to Pier, Sunderland. June - Blaydon race. July - Northumberland Coastal Run. September - Great North Run.
