Hexhamshire Hobble Fell Race, 1st Dec 2019

Sunday 1 December 2019 Richard sends his report from the hills. A good turnout of Claremonters for this annual winter 10-mile fell race around the moors above Allendale. This year the run was anti-clockwise (it alternates yearly) so the steep ascent up the road was first up before hitting the moor. The route then rises …

Blyth Sands Race, 1st December 2019

The Blyth Sands, brilliantly organized by the very friendly Blyth Running Club, is a five mile race run entirely on Blyth beach and handicapped by gender and age. Sounds idyllic but remember, this is a beach in Northeast England in December, not some tropical island, so the weather is sure to be vile. Runners are …

Croft Circuit 5K, 30th November 2019

Luke Woodend and Alice Vialard avoided the parkrun cancellations by going to Darlington to run in the Croft Circuit 5K. I’m sure it was equally cold down there, so well done to both! Position Runner Time 128 Luke Woodend 24:22 143 Alice Vialard 26:33

parkrun, 30th November 2019

A cold clear night dropped temperatures in Newcastle to -4 C leading to cancellation of 6 of 9 parkruns in Tyne and Wear. Most Claremont runners or volunteers were at Leazes parkrun.  Leazes only went ahead with a slightly altered route avoiding the worst ice patches and adding 105 m to the course length.  Chris …

NEHL Aykley Heads, 2rd Nov 2019

Last cross-country I heard a number of people bemoaning the lack of mud on the courses – they will certainly not be able to make the same complaint this year! I thought that no course could ever be muddier than my first experience of Thornley Hall Farm a couple of years ago, but I was …

parkrun, 23rd November 2019

It was a grey, wet and miserable day for running or volunteering at parkruns. It was also the day for the NEHL cross country fixture at Aykley Heads, so for lots of reasons turn out at parkruns was poor. Credit must be given to Bill, Maria, Nina and Roberto who ran or volunteered at Parkruns …

NEMC Town Moor Marathon, 17th Nov 2019

As usual, the North East Marathon Club’s annual Town Moor Marathon was well supported by Claremont Road Runners. As well as providing 10 participants for the full and half-marathons, Claremont also manned the drinks (and snacks) station stationed at the end of each lap. I think everybody who runs lap after lap around the Moor …

parkrun, 16th November 2019

A fairly miserable, wet morning was no barrier to 4 Claremonters recoding PBs this week, so well done to Tara at Newcastle, Catherine at Leazes, Nicki at Whitley Bay and Luke at Jesmond Dene (though I’m sure Luke can go faster than that!).Kris Axon is also to be commended on an excellent 3rd place at …

Heaton Harriers Memorial Race, 10th November 2019

A good turnout from Claremont on a beautiful day for the annual Heaton Harriiers Memorial Race on the Town Moor. There were some great times too, with 10K PBs for Roberto Marzo, Catherine Young and Sarah Kerr – plus a post-baby PB for Heather Steel! Position Time Runner 63 37:35 Roberto Marzo 92 38:55 Paul …

Saturn Running Remembrance Run, 10th November 2019

This was an event with a choice of distances from 5K to Ultras. Four Claremonters all made different choices – Marie Slack doing 10 miles, Mary Martin the half-marathon, Bill Milbourne ran 20 miles with Nina Jensen running over 50K (would we expect anything else?). Well done everyone!
