Club Run Sessions

Structured Leader or Coach Led Club Sessions

Please use the club’s RunTogether page to book into all sessions. Whilst there is no charge for these sessions, booking allows to keep a record of attendance (including emergency contact details) and manage group sizes.

Ponteland Runners offer a variety of sessions. Each group will be led by a qualified leader.  Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday sessions all meet at Ponteland Leisure Centre Car Park usually at 7pm.  Sunday sessions locations vary and are sometimes held at different locations.

We want all runners to enjoy the run sessions in a safe environment and in a group that best suits their ability. The times stated next to the Wednesday group sessions below are indicative and not set in stone!

If you’re unsure which group to run with, please speak to any of the run leaders before the session starts.
