Monday & Wednesday Club Runs

As lockdown restrictions ease, the club sessions on Mondays and Wednesdays are able to become more “normal”. Monday evening sessions once again start at 6pm, with the slowest groups going first and we are now having groups of up to 12. Wednesday’s intervals are organised as a single group, though activities may be done in …

Run Cumbria Solway Half-Marathon, 6th June 2021

Three Claremonters crossed over to the west coast to run the Solway Half-Marathon this weekend. It may be a beautiful, flat course but it must have been tough on such a warm day. So well done to Marie, Richard and Alan – and congratulations to Marie on winning her age category! Position Runner Time 71 …

Ultra North 55K, 5th June 2021

Two of the Claremont ultra-runners took on the challenge of the Ultra North 55K event on a course through the Tyne and Derwent Valleys. Both did amazingly well on such a hot day for running anywhere! So well done to Simon Lowe and Nina Jensen. Position Runner Time 20 Simon Lowe 5:31:07 112 Nina Jensen …

Derwent Reservoir 10m Trail Race, 30th May 2021

Nina Jensen and Julie Dumpleton enjoyed a lovely run around Derwent Reservoir – if a 10 mile trail race on a hot day can really be described as “lovely”! Well done to both. Position Runner Time 136 Julie Dumpleton 1:56:32 138 Nina Jensen 1:56:34

Gateshead Half-Marathon, 30th May 2021

Racing returned to the banks of the Tyne on Sunday morning with the Gateshead half-marathon. It was a hot day (and we haven’t been used to running in the sunshine, have we?), so well done to the 3 Claremonters who took part. Hazel Juggins sends the following report: “The Gateshead Half Marathon was a new …

Gordon Smith Virtual Relays, May 2021

The Gordon Smith Memorial Relays were a virtual event again this year, with competitors having a week to run a 2 mile course of their own choosing. It was for teams of 3 with each team having to include at least one veteran. Wallsend Harriers also used the event to raise money for St Oswald’s …

Hardmoors Wainstone 13.1 Trail Race, 8th May 2021

Kris Axon has been out doing his stuff on the trails of North Yorkshire again, winning the Hardmoor Trails 13.1 Trail Race. Billed as a half-marathon, it is actually a gruelling 16.5 miles (always knew they couldn’t count in Yorkshire!), with a total climb of 3,630 feet. I would be impressed if I could get …

10K races, April 2021

Catherine Young has recently run in a couple of contrasting 10K races. Firstly she went down to Dalton Park on a bitterly cold, windy day to tackle a tough course that ends with a steep climb! This Sunday, 25th April, Catherine went to Teesside for the Middlesbrough Endeavour Graded 10K. Much better weather and a …

Derwent Reservoir Duathlon, 25th April 2021

Not content with just running, Michael Teasdale and Julie Cross entered a run-bike-run duathlon at Derwent Reservoir. This is what Michael had to say: “It was great to be doing an actual, non-virtual event (funnily enough the last event I did pre-COVID was another duathlon – Try on the Tyne). The ride at Derwent Reservoir …

Spring Handicap, 26th April 2021

Even if we couldn’t run the handicap as usual, it was nice that we could run in groups of up to 6 and a number of us took advantage of this to start together and have an element of competition over the hills on the “real” Town Moor course. Others chose their own 5K route …

Raby Castle 10 Miler, 18th April 2021

Richard and Marie Slack have been out racing again around Raby Castle in County Durham. It is a beautiful venue and sounds like a really nice course, where I am sure the local deer population will have added to the splendour of the views. “Another Sunday in freer times, and the first of many held-over …
