County Durham Sport is looking for running 'leaders' to encourage others to join running groups in the area.

County Durham Sport want to both new beginners and more experienced runners, particularly in Peterlee and East Durham.

Running can be a great way to help you get more active. Regardless of your age or fitness level, if you’ve never run before or haven’t run for years, running can be very accessible and flexible. It’s not expensive, all you need is a decent pair of trainers and a little bit of encouragement and support.
