Proud sponsors of the Derwentside Reservoir Races 2019

Planning House were proud to sponsor the Derwentside Reservoir Trail Races 2019.  Take a look at photos from the event in out Photo Gallery.

We were super proud to have our very own Helen Heward representing Planning House along with her husband Adam and Chris Pipe, husband of Chris Pipe, Planning House Director (2 Chris’s confusing isn’t it!).

The results are in and Chris came an impressive 2nd in the men’s 5k race with a spectacular time of 22.13 (running at a pace of 7.37minute miles – WOW). Chris then went on to race in the 7 mile (after a 30 minute rest) and completed the race in a very respectable time of 1.03.13.

Helen completed the 5k race in an amazing time of 29.20 and Adam completed it in a remarkable time of 26.11.

Helen is over the moon with her medal which will be wearing to all future meetings!

Run Peterlee launched a 7 mile trail race around the multi-purpose track of the beautiful Derwent Reservoir, in 2018, the event expanded to include a 3 mile (5k) race. Both races took place on Sunday 2nd June 2019 in support of raising money for Water Aid.

A big thank you to David Ferguson, Chairperson of Run Peterlee and Commercial & Contracts Manager at Northumbrian Water Group who organised the event as Race Director and all the Run Peterlee volunteers who made the day a great success.

A massive thank you to all who took part.

In 2017, Run Peterlee launched a 7 mile trail race around the multi-purpose track of the beautiful Derwent Reservoir, in 2018, with a new improved visitors centre and car park, the event expanded to include a 3 mile (5k) race.  Both races return on Sunday 2nd June 2019.

Derwent Reservoir lies within the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, on the border between County Durham and Northumberland, and, after Kielder Reservoir, is the second largest reservoir in the region. It supplies 28 million gallons (127 million litres) of water every day to the homes and industries of much of Wearside and South Tyneside.

Parking at the visitors centre (DH8 9TT), runners will warm up as they make their way up to the starting area at the dam, with magnificent views of the reservoir and the surrounding hills.

5K Trail Race – starts 09:00 – Starting from the dam, the 5K race will head to the left towards Pow Hill Visitors Centre, past South Shore. Turning at Pow Hill Visitor’s Centre the participants will run back to finish on the dam. Therefore, this is an out and back course.

7M Trail Race – starts at 10:00 – Starting from the dam, the 7M race will head to the left towards Pow Hill Visitors Centre, past South Shore. Turning at Pow Hill Visitor’s Centre the participants will run back toward the dam, then pass Cronkley Bay, Henry’s Plantation and The Meadow towards Millshield Picnic Area. Turning one more time the participants will run back to finish on the dam. Therefore, this is a double out and back course.
