Jason Hall, England International

parkrun & C25K graduation, 9th March 2024

It was a Claremont Road Runners volunteer takeover at Leazes Park today as the club helped celebrate the latest batch of Couch to 5K on their “graduation”. Unfortunately not all of the “trainees” could be there, but the 5 who were all made it safely to the end! This has been a tough Couch to …

On Monday evening the Halloween Breeze cycle ride took place and as usual the Claremont Coven were well represented by Nina Jensen, Marie Slack, Gill Milne and Silvia Velastegui, a regular handicap guest.
