Winter Handicap, 25th January 2021

Four miles is a long way to run with nobody to chase! So well done to the 31 runners who braved the ice and the cold and ran in our 4th virtual handicap. Don’t worry, back to the summer course next, so it will be shorter! Times were affected by the weather as, depending upon …

Lads v Lasses LEJOG Challenge, January 2021

The latest Claremont lockdown challenge saw the Lads pitted against the Lasses to see who could get from Land’s End to John O’Groats the fastest. It was an extremely close thing throughout the 9 days that it took to complete the route. The Lads took a narrow lead on day 1, extended it on day …

Virtual Christmas Party 2020

The Christmas Party was a bit different this year – no hand-pulled pints, no dodgy buffet and no Christmas hugs! We had to make do with Zoom instead, but I think that everybody who attended enjoyed it. Tom had set a quiz on the Claremont year, Nina had us running around our houses on a …

Norman Woodcock Relays, 21st to 28th November

As with other relays, this year’s Norman Woodcock Relays, organised by Elswick Harriers, was a virtual affair. This time we had a week to run any 2 mile course of our own choosing. There was no stipulation of starting and finishing at the same place, so downhill courses were a possibility! I don’t know how …

11 Point Challenge Result

Well, once again, the Claremont ladies came out on top in the November 11 point challenge. The Lasses scored a resounding 136 to 79 victory to make it 4 wins out of 4. However the result is not without controversy. Men’s Team Captain, Tom Tinsley, does not accept the result and will be launching various …

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. However, we are still allowed to run in pairs.  So, if you need a running …

Autumn Handicap, 26th October 2020

Results are here. Thirty runners took part in the Autumn Handicap, which once again was a virtual affair. Most chose a 4 mile route near their home, but a significant number did brave the wind and run the Quayside course this evening. Well done to everybody who took part. It is a shame that this …
