parkrun, 21st May 2022

A bit of tourism this week, with David Lydall running in Dorest and Laurie Johnson in Bristol. Nearer home Paul Robinson got a PB at Leazes despite pushing his son in the pushchair (while Piper marshaled!). Martin Jobling and Sophie Douglas also got PBs at Leazes, while Ben Hardy is clearly getting back to form …

Clive Cookson 10K, 18th May 2022

Thanks to Howard MacLennan for this report of the Clive Cookson 10K, where he and Sarah Kerr were the Claremont representatives: “We arrived at the very outstandingly designed Monkseaton High School, and at that time the conditions appeared fair and reasonable. The field of elite Club runners was stacked, especially new and old wanting to …

GU36 – The Guernsey Ultra, 15th May 2022

Nina Jensen and Marie Slack have been on a trip to the Channel Islands to have a run around the island of Guernsey. The GU36 is described on the website as: “The circular route starts in the picturesque town of St. Peter Port before leading on to 16 miles of beautifully rugged cliffs. From here …

Pier to Pier, 15th May 2022

A decent contingent of Claremont Road Runners headed to the seaside for this very scenic race down the coast from South Shields to Roker. For me, this event is one of the highlights of the North East racing calendar and it was good to be back for the first time since 2019. As I was …

parkrun, 14th May 2022

This weekend saw Alice Vialard return for a flying visit to Newcastle so, of course, she took in Leazes parkrun. Sorry to miss you, Alice, but I had decided to have a morning off and rest my legs before the Pier to Pier – as did a few others. Nikoletta Szlovak followed up her impressive …

Gordon Smith Relays, 11th May 2022

We had a decent turnout of 8 teams at this year’s Gordon Smith Relays, 5 in the women’s race and 3 in the men’s. It was great to see a number of relay debutants, including Couch to 5K graduates. I hope they enjoyed it and come back for more (even though, in my opinion, this …

Sunderland 10K & Half-Marathon, 8th May 2022

It was glorious day for running in sunny Sunderland by the sea for this year’s Sunderland City Races., where Claremont had runners in the 10K and half-marathon. The 10K started first with Heather Steel and Martin Jobling wearing the Sky Blue. Martin had a good run, but it was a very emotional occasion for local …

parkrun, 7th May 2022

It was a nice morning for parkruns in the North East today and a good few Claremont Road Runners took advantage. There was a change to the course at Leazes Park to avoid some Canada Geese who were being highly protective of their single gosling. This meant a slightly longer course which including an extra …

NEMAA Relays, 4th May 2022

It was a successful night for Claremont at the North East Masters Relays with a gold medal winning performance from the Ladies “A” team of Nicki O’Brien, Sarah Kerr and Catherine Young. Congratulations, ladies! The race is on tarmac paths in Bedewell Park, Jarrow with each runner completing 2 laps of 1500m each. It is …

Chopwell 10K, 4th May 2022

Nina Jensen, Julie Dumpleton and Mary Martin ran the Chopwell 10K together. They say that it was a great course with lots of hills (some of you may find that a bit contradictory!). They had a stop part way around so Julie could do some impromptu drumming! Seems like they enjoyed themselves! Position Runner Time …
