Late last year my friend and I parked up at Blaydon Rugby Club and set off....
The run is basically along a country path but its wide, there is easily enough room for a group of runners to run along comfortably. There are a couple of main roads that you have to cross along the way but that's to be expected, the scenery more than makes up for that. It's certainly not a boring run along a straight path - it's undulating, it bends, its turns, there are loads of things to look at as you jog along.
With it being an out and back course you can turn around whenever you like and head back at any time. The best part for me is the fact that it's ever so slightly uphill on the way out which obviously means that on the way back, when you may be a little tired, you can relax and enjoy the downhill.
The final point I wanted to make was that is it so so quiet. I know that runners say that running is a good way to unwind but this is certainly the case along the Derwent Walk, it's peaceful and it's great, I would recommend it to anyone and hope to see more people there in the summer months!
