Lads v Lasses 11th November, 11 Point Challenge

As we are back in lockdown and can’t meet as a club, we thought it was time to have another Lads v Lasses lockdown challenge and give the Claremont men one last chance to redeem themselves in 2020. As the ladies have shown that they can run further, climb higher and spell better, we have …

National Lockdown, November 2020

As another national lockdown starts on Thursday, 5th November, club sessions will be suspended from next week.  England Athletics have yet to change their guidance but with all amateur sport suspended, it seems unlikely that running will get an exemption.

It was Maria’s first ever Ultra and she sends this report: “Last Saturday, I attempted my first …

Lockdown Bingo No. 2, August/September 2020

Although we were in the “new normal” rather than strict lockdown, this was a bingo card that tried to reflect all the challenges that had kept us busy during lockdown. Then, part way through, we entered a local lockdown! Although the club sessions could continue using the Covid-secure guidelines as approved by England Athletics, we …

Running the Metro

The lockdown has had us all thinking of new ways to run, new routes and generally wondering how to keep interested and motivated. Chris Jones found an innovative solution – run the Metro lines! Here is his how he did it: “Metro was 40 years old in August, and always looking for new places to run …
