Winter Handicap, 25th January 2021

Four miles is a long way to run with nobody to chase! So well done to the 31 runners who braved the ice and the cold and ran in our 4th virtual handicap. Don’t worry, back to the summer course next, so it will be shorter! Times were affected by the weather as, depending upon …

England Athletics Virtual Relay, January 2021

England Athletics joined the virtual relay community with their own inter-club competition. Individuals had to run their own 5 mile course and provide evidence from a GPS device such as Strava. There was then one team per club with the fastest 4 men and the fastest 4 women counting. They chose a tricky time of …

Norman Woodcock Relays, 21st to 28th November

As with other relays, this year’s Norman Woodcock Relays, organised by Elswick Harriers, was a virtual affair. This time we had a week to run any 2 mile course of our own choosing. There was no stipulation of starting and finishing at the same place, so downhill courses were a possibility! I don’t know how …

Autumn Handicap, 26th October 2020

Results are here. Thirty runners took part in the Autumn Handicap, which once again was a virtual affair. Most chose a 4 mile route near their home, but a significant number did brave the wind and run the Quayside course this evening. Well done to everybody who took part. It is a shame that this …

Chapelfell Top Fell Race, 10th October 2020

Here is another Fell Race report from Richard Slack. Richard sent this in before the results were in, and I am happy to confirm that Kris Axon was the winner – well done, Kris! Chapelfell Top is one of the many 2000 foot summits in The Eastern Pennines, Weardale with its summit at 703m or …

Ultra North, 3rd October 2020

Fancy a socially distanced Ultra Marathon? Me neither, but I have a strange admiration for those that do! So a very well done to Sarah Bowen and Maria Duenas, who have just completed the 55km Ultra North run. It was Maria’s first ever Ultra and she sends this report: “Last Saturday, I attempted my first …

Run Northumberland Matfen 10K, 20th September 2020

Run Northumberland are continuing with their socially distanced races and the latest was the Matfen 10K on Sunday. Richard and Marie Slack represented the Sky Blues in this one – and a big “well done” to Marie for winning her age category! Position Runner Time 83 Richard Slack 47:53 134 (1st F55) Marie Slack 55:43

Run Nation Dalton Park 10K, 23rd August 2020

The Run Nation series of races are back up and running, though not quite as before. To ensure social distancing, they are starting in groups of 6 with a 5 minute gap between each group. A group of Claremonters went to try the Dalton Park 10K and did very well on what was a tough, …

Summer Handicap, 27th July 2020

For the second club handicap of the Covid-19 era, runners were given the choice of a 5K route of their own choosing (not downhill!) or running the real Summer Handicap course in Exhibition Park and over the Town Moor hills. The weather wasn’t very kind for those who waited until today – I bet it …

Virtual Weetslade Relay, 24th June 2020

Thank you to everybody who took part in the Virtual Weetslade Relay.  Sorry that we could not give you the opportunity to run up our lovely hill, but we hope that you enjoyed it wherever you ran.  I am sure there were many diverse courses – I know that Claremont Road Runners had participants running …
