DFR Ladies Nights are up and running

It was not planned that our very first Durham Fell Runners Ladies session would take place on International Women’s Day but it felt pretty powerful that it did. 

Having recently completed my Leader in Running Fitness course it was my main aim to set up these sessions as a way of making that leap into joining a new running club a little less intimidating and for new female members. The vision is that these sessions are accessible to all, regardless of current fitness levels, with the focus being on getting out into the forest, building confidence and just taking in the magic that running somewhere remote gives.

And so it was that last night thirteen brave ladies took the plunge and came to Hamsterley Forest for the very start of this adventure. It was a lovely early spring night with little wind and a lovely moon peeping through the trees as we completed our warm up then set off for a lap of the Gruffalo trail where we learned and practised the art of looping back. When we run out this will mean that no one is left behind and that everyone is able to keep moving at their own pace. Then we completed a paired activity with the focus being on maintaining a consistent pace. It is fair to say that everyone absolutely smashed it with some very impressive timing. Then we had a cool down and before we knew it the session was finished. 

 A huge thank you to everyone who turned up – you were fantastic.    See you at the next session on 22nd March.    If you have any questions then please email me at fblackett@outlook.com.   If you fancy joining us then come along for our next session, we meet at 1900 in the main Hamsterley Forest car park.   

Thank you for a truly inclusive first session. And having the moon out and listening to the river added to the magic.

High Cup Nick postponed

The first club champ race for 2022 has been postponed. From the organiser:

Hi Folks, really really sorry, but due to the recent storms and wet weather there are no fields in, around or near enough to Dufton to provide the car parking needed for our races on Saturday (this also includes the kids trail races). This final straw combined with some other issues (we can’t provide much shelter, we can’t provide hot drinks etc) has meant that unfortunately we are going to have to postpone the race on Saturday.

Once we know more, we will circle back. But just wanting to get this sad news out to you all as soon as possible so that you can replan your weekends. As much as we like seeing you all, please do not come to Dufton this weekend.

Thanks for your understanding and a thousand apologies.
