Gateshead Trail 10K, 13th August 2022

It was a hot day for racing, but luckily the Gateshead Trail 10K offers a lot of shade for the participants. Six Claremont ladies (why no men?) took on the ups and downs of the Derwent Valley this year. Well done to all. Position Runner Time 135 Heather Steel 46:52 264 Clare McKitterick 51:06 308 …

parkrun, 13th August 2022

The summer holidays mean that Claremonters are spread around the globe at the moment. With the current heatwave, 9am was a good time to run, even for those who stayed at home. Sky Blue parkrunners were spread from Scotland to Kent, with a visit to the grounds of a National Trust site (and massive stately …

Stamfordham 10K, 10th August 2022

Congratulations to Catherine Young on being first lady in the Run Nation Stamfordham 10K. It must have been incredibly tough running in teh heat – so a big well done to Nina Jensen too! Richard Slack also ran but in his South Shields vest, even though he knows that he is a Claremonter at heart! …

Quayside 5K, 10th August 2022

It must have been hot work on the banks of the Tyne for this year’s Quayside 5K, so well done to everybody who ran. There were 3 Sky Blue representatives – Kris in the ‘A’ Race, with Howard and Clare running in the ‘B’ race. ‘A’ Race Position Runner Time 16 Kris Axon 15:47 ‘B’ …

parkrun, 6th August 2022

As the country basked in a heatwave, runners would have been glad of the 9am parkrun start, though it was hot enough then where I was. Us Northerners are not meant to run in the heat! So well done to everybody who did get out for their Saturday morning parkrun fix. The heat seemed to …

York Sprint Triathlon, 31st July 2022

Michael Teasdale likes a triathlon and he has just been to York to compete in a sprint version. In hos own words: “York Sprint Triathlon completed. Given that I only stopped testing positive for COVID a week ago and my chest is still far from 100% the biggest challenge was just about getting to the …

Gosforth Summer Relays, 31st July 2022

Report from Laurie Johnson: Three Claremont teams competed in the Gosforth Summer Relays at Newcastle Great Park on Sunday morning. Conditions were pretty good for a short 2 mile race: Overcast but not overly warm, with the earlier rain having mostly eased off, the odd burst of light drizzle notwithstanding. The course is a kind …

parkrun, 30th July 2022

Strangely, Claremont was only represented at two of the North East parkruns this weekend – Leazes and Jesmond Dene. This was probably due to two factors – there was no run on the Town Moor and a large group of us went to Jesmond Dene in order to help Julie Cross and Sarah Kerr celebrate …

Summer Handicap, 25th July 2022

It didn’t really feel like a summer’s evening as it was chilly and damp on the Town Moor, but at least we avoided the torrential rain. The monsoon conditions that afternoon had certainly put off a number of runners and there were only 31 of the expected 40 runners on the start line! The course …

Northumberland Coastal Run, 14th July 2022

It was an early start and a revised route for the return of this beautiful run down the Northumberland coast. The run had been refused permission to run all the way across Beadnell Bay on the beach, due to the need to protect the breeding Little Terns at Long Nanny. So we started some 400m …
