parkrun, 8th June 2017

Newcastle parkrun A special parkrun for Claremont as it marked 3 major milestones – 100 parkruns for Alice, 200 for David Lydall and 300 for Mungai. Most of us jogged around together, trying to avoid the puddles but still getting very wet! Afterwards we dripped dry over a celebratory coffee at the Central Bean cafe …

Berwickshire Coastal Path, 2nd June 2019

The latest in Claremont’s long distance adventures saw 19 of us head over the border to St. Abbs to then follow the coastal path down to Berwick. For the majority it was an early start as the coach left Newcastle at 8am, but Gill and I had a bit more sleep as it collected us …

Mungai Wairia, Superstar

  Our very own Mungai Wairia was presented with the Male Parkrunner of the Year award at Newcastle parkrun yesterday. A very well deserved award – is there anybody as entusiastic and encouraging as Mungai at any parkrun, anywhere? Well done, Mungai.

Nina Jensen Superstar

Was there ever anybody more suited to being a Duracell Bunny than Nina “And I would run 100 miles” Jensen? The BBC obviously spotted this and Nina proved to be the perfect interviewee – generally being the smiling, enthusiastic and encouraging person that we know and love! Absolutely brilliant Nina – you are a natural. …

The Face of Kenya at the GNR

As you can see in this photo, the face of UK Athletics had the great honour of meeting the face of Kenya before today’s Great North Run.  Sir Mo obviously listened to Mungai’s words of wisdom on how to run the race as he shot off like a rocket before settling into his own (very …

Claremont Spring Handicap, 30th April 2018

Handicap results here. Although it was a nice, dry evening, there was a cold wind that was particularly strong over the Town Moor hills.  This made the  spring handicap a challenge for runners, but even more of one for the marshals! Once again we were augmented by a number of guests, including our friends from …
