Welcome to Washington Running Club
A friendly group of amateur runners covering Washington and the surrounding area. We train twice a week, 7pm on Thursdays and 9am on Sundays from Biddick Academy. Our sessions vary to keep everything fresh, enjoyable and to help you improve – come and join us for a session, we promise you will love it.
Washington Running Club is a thriving, friendly club with almost 200 members from the age of 16 upwards and welcome new members of all abilities. Our main base is at Biddick Academy (Biddick Lane, Washington, NE38 8AL) and often have road trips so be sure to keep an eye on our Facebook page for the latest training schedules.
Thursday is our tempo session so lots of hill and sprint training, lung bursting but really fun and amazing for your running fitness. Sundays are all about longer social running utilising the beautiful trail paths all along the river Wear and Penshaw Monument.
The club is also an active member of the North East Cross Country League and pays for members to race, the events are all over the north east and against other clubs – it's a great team bonding event and we encourage anyone to try it whatever ability you are.
Washington Running Club also proudly organises the Bottoms Up Cup, our famous 5k trail run in Princess Anne Park where we have raised thousands of pounds for Bloodwise.
You can come to a few sessions for free to see if you feel the club would be a good fit for yourself. The cost to join is then just £22 per year and an additional £15 per year if you wish to race with the club and be affiliated with England Athletics.
