Membership fees

Despite the name, the club participates in all disciplines of running, fell, cross country and road and welcomes applications from runners of all abilities to join us. If you are not sure if the club is for you, why not come to one of our training sessions or one of our regular pub runs. You will be under no obligation to join, but you will get a feel for the club and a better idea if the club is for you. You can merely turn up to a training session unannounced, but it would be better if you contacted our club secretary first (details on the contacts page) and let him know that you will be coming and he will make sure that whoever is leading the group will look out for you. If you are an absolute beginner to running, you too are most welcome to join us in one of our sessions, but please contact our secretary first and he will make sure that you will have a programme with which you are comfortable.

Kielder Off Road Duathlon - 1 December 2013

Des Walkden and Stuart Bryan entered this 7k Trail Run / 20k Mountain Bike Ride  / 6k Trail Run that is the Kielder Duathonlon.  This was the first duathlon for Stuart Bryan.  The conditions were much more favourable than the sleet and snow that greeted competitors last year.

Des Walkden finished 36th in 2.31.20, managing to knock 19 mins off last year's time.
Stuart Bryan finished 78th in 2.49.20. Stuart was flying and breaking various strava hill climb records, but unfortunately was set back by a puncture. It was Stuart's first off-road duathlon and apart from the puncture, he thoroughly enjoyed the event.  On the other hand, he also learnt what it is like to get "jelly legs".
Both are looking forward to the next race in the series at Grizedale.
Total 148 solo finishers.
