Welcome to Durham Fell Runners

If you’re looking for a club devoted to off-road running you’ve come to the right place. We have members from all walks of life. We run year round in all weathers, on roads, trails and moorland.


Come and join us for some coached training on a Thursday night


We race all over the country, with events lasting 10 minutes to 10 days
And we sometimes set a few records too
