Derwent Valley Trail Runners was started off by a group of like minded individuals who just love to run on the trails. We believe that we are all free spirits and adventurers at heart and the countryside is there to be enjoyed by everyone. We hope to promote the beautiful Derwent Valley in the Land of Oak and Iron with a group of like minded people all over the country.
See you all on the trails...
We meet at Dipton Village in the main car park (in front of the Surgery) at 6.30pm every Tuesday for "Technique Tuesday" a coach led training sessions focusing on all aspects of trail running. Also, every Thursday also at 6:30pm for our regular club run. Please feel free to join us for an off road run on the trails around our beautiful Derwent Valley!
Our runs last approximately 1 hour, they are led by UKA qualified run leaders and are split into groups according to ability, or just how you feel on the night. Everyone is welcome. We run on trail and due to the nature of this terrain you probably shouldn't bring your shiny new road shoes along, they won't stay shiny for long!
Dogs are welcome to join the Sunday run as long as they are able to keep their humans under control!
For more details please see the links above to our Facebook page and our Twitter feed.
Thanks for stopping by hopefully we will see you soon, happy running!
