parkrun, 18th September 2021

After the influx of visitors last week due to the Great North Run, it was business as usual at the local parkruns this morning – though a number of runners were sporting GNR t-shirts! There was the customary good turnout of Sky Blues at Leazes, volunteering and running. Sarah Kerr followed her very impressive performance …

Great North Run, 12th September 2021

This was the Great North Run, but not as we know it! For one year only, due to circumstances that I think we all know, the 40th running of the GNR was an out and back route with runners starting in waves. As usual there was a good turnout of Claremont Road Runners – running, …

Auchterarder Half Marathon,12th September 2021

The Great North Run was not the only half marathon this weekend. Hannah Fishburn ventured north of the border to run in the Auchterarder half, part of the Auchterarder Running Festival.

parkrun, 11th September 2021

There was no parkrun on the Town Moor this morning due to tomorrow’s Great North Run, which meant higher than usual attendances with lots of visiting runners for Leazes, Jesmond Dene and other local events. The proximity to the GNR also meant that a lot of Sky Blues chose to marshal, have an easy run …

Blyth Links 10K, 31st August 2021

Unfortunately, but understandably, entries for this year’s Blyth Links 10K were restricted to those running in the North Shields Poly Grand Prix. The Links 10K counts as the first event in the 8 race series. Claremont have two teams of 8 in the Grand Prix – running under the names of “Rock’s Stars” and “Choo …

Farringdon XC Relays, 4th September 2021

The Farringdon Relays mark the start of the cross-country season. Hazel Juggins reports: A small but enthusiastic Claremont contingent represented the Club at the Ken Jefferson Memorial Cross Country at Farringdon, organised by Sunderland Harriers. The weather was a bit wetter than forecast but it was not cold and the course would be a pleasant …

Leeds Half Marathon, 5th September 2021

Sonam Wangdi travelled down to Leeds for the half marathon and had an excellent run to finish in 205th place in a time of 1:35:50. This is his half marathon PB too. Well done!

Morpeth 10K, 5th September 2021

Having run a mere 27 miles on Saturday, Nina Jensen’s idea of a next day recovery run was to enter the Morpeth 10K. Being the amazing runner that she is, Nina finished in 76th place in a time of 48:38.

parkrun, 4th September 2021

Perhaps this weekend signalled the end of holiday parkrun tourism, but Claremonters managed to spread themselves around 7 different events in the North East. A special well done to Kris Axon on winning in his first ever outing at Whitley Bay. Elsewhere, Mark Anderson chalked up a PB whilst finishing 3rd at Rising Sun, and …
