North East Project

Professional running coaching and events for beginners to GB level athletes.  

ABOUT Us:

The project was launched in 2018 with a vision of developing athletics in the North East of England using our scientific and elite running backgrounds to help others be the best they can be. 

We aim to improve the standard of distance running in our region and provide opportunity for more people to enjoy exciting events and reach their potential through our club.

Reviews

"Wasn't sure a running group was for me, but so glad I took the plunge and tried it. Very friendly and welcoming group led by two extremely motivated and enthusiastic people. Ben and Kieran work so hard to provide sessions that offer variety and fun, whilst (discretely) making sure you push yourselves to develop and improve. We all have our own varied abilities and limits yet each session can be tailored to suit your individual levels and you never feel out of place. Would thoroughly recommend this project group".
