Claremont in lockdown – weeks 1&2

With no club sessions, parkruns or Sunday Runday outings to keep us out of mischief, we are all having to find new ways to exercise, keep fit and get our running fix. As Julie Cross points out: “Claremont’s old motto could well come into its own now: Why Run Alone? All answers please on a …

Running Alone, 23rd March 2020 – the day before we had to!

We all love running – it keeps us sane and fit. We all love running with our friends – that is why we are in a running club.  We can’t do that anymore!  The trouble is that even running alone is not a simple matter anymore. However, the government advice remains that we should still …

Two Claremont Road Runners were out in the windy Northumberland countryside for this event – Mungai Wairia tackled the half-marathon and Roberto Marzo took on the Big 20 Miler.

This year, Richard Slack, David Lydall and Maria Duenas all took part. …

NEHL Lambton Estate, 14th March 2020

A new venue for the NE Harrier League at Lambton Estate which, thankfully, went ahead following an earlier postponement due to flooding. Another great performance from the Claremont Ladies with a first place finish that puts them top of Division 3 with just one event to go (and a fair chance that that event will …

parkrun, 14th March 2020

A special day at Leazes Park as the man responsible for creating this wonderful parkrun said his farewells before moving to that there London (I’m sure he will be back!). It also coincided with the Claremont Road Runners volunteer takeover day, though we normally provide half of the volunteers anyway! Afterwards, there was a gathering …

parkrun, 7th March 2020

It was international women’s parkrun day and many of Claremont’s international women were participating. So well done Alice Vialard, Julija Stoniute, Nina Jentl, Serpil Bulut, and Violeta Tsenova (apologies if any have been missed). Kris Axon finished first at Sandhurst and Catherine Young was first at Newcastle.  Well run both.  Congratulations also to Alasdair Wilson …

NEHL Alnwick, 29th February 2020

After all the recent cancellations, the cross-country season got back underway at Alnwick, even though Storm Jorge was beginning to flex its muscles. It was clear that wind was going to be a problem as we fought to keep the cars in a straight line as we drove up the A1, but at least we …
