Durham Coastal Half-Marathon, 16th June 2019

Maria Duenas chose the Durham Coastal Half-Marathon for her first run in Britain and sends us this report and photos. Well done, Maria – it sounds too tough and I think I will stick to the Northumberland version! “The Durham Coast Half Marathon was my first race in the UK and first race in blue …

Rat Race The Wall, 15th June 2019

We have two reports – Nina …

Newburn River Run, 12th June 2019

Allendale Fair Multi-Terrain Race, 25th May 2019

The Allendale Fair has been a favourite day out for Claremont in recent years, but this year saw just 6 of us in the race – though Gill came to the Fair for the first time but looked after my Mum instead of running (she makes such sacrifices!). There have been a few variations of …

Cherry Tree 10 Miler, Propect Park, New York

Marie Slack is across the pond where she found time to run a 10 mile race in Prospect Park, Brooklyn. The website advertises it as “The Race for the Hardcore” so Marie’s time of 1:33:27 seems more than respectable. Well done.

New Year’s Day parkrun

It was a beautiful morning for blowing the cobwebs away, so much so that a number of people doubled it and did two parkruns! Matt, Dan and Charlotte did the coastal duo of Newbiggin-by-the-Sea and Druridge Bay, Paul did Newbiggin and Rising Sun, whilst Mungai and Luke opted for Riverside and Rising Sun. Riverside parkrun …
