Au Revoir, Alice

Alice Vialard will soon be off to start a new chapter in her life “down under” when she emigrates to Sydney, Australia. There was a great turnout for last Monday’s club run with most joining Alice for a farewell drink at the North Terrace afterwards. Saturday marked her final Leazes parkrun – with coffee afterwards, of course, at Cafe Bean.

Alice will be greatly missed at the club – not only has she served as Chair and Vice Chair and organised a house to house relay, but she would scour the pubs of Newcastle looking for potential recruits (I think that was why she went!). Mainly though we will miss Alice for her sociability and great sense of fun.

I am sure that everybody at Claremont Road Runners will join me in wishing Alice all the very best for the future – we hope you find a nice, friendly running club! Bonne chance, Alice!
