NEHL Druridge Bay, 10th October 2021

It was another unseasonably warm afternoon for cross-country, with sun cream once again the order of the day. Each cross-country venue has its own character and Druridge Bay Country Park makes for a nice setting but an unusual course. The start and finish areas are on very uneven fields, there are no real hills just …

parkrun, 9th October 2021

On a lovely morning for running, Claremont Road Runners were again spread across parkruns in the North East. There was yet another PB for Marie Slack at South Shields – it looks like Richard paced her. That’s very nice of you, Richard, but the gentlemanly thing to do is to let the lady cross the …

Kielder 10K, 2nd October 2021

Michael Teasdale and Lena Webster-Costella took part in the Kielder 10K. This is a tough 10K in any conditions, but must have been particularly difficult in the heavy rain – not to mention the wind. Michael finished in in 188th place in a time of 57:13. Lena doesn’t appear in the results, but her Strava …

parkrun, 2nd October 2021

After last weekend’s warm sunshine for the cross-country, there was a definite autumnal feeling to the weather for parkrun this morning. There was no run at Leazes Park due to another event in the park, and Claremont Road Runners spread themselves about the North east and further afield. Well done to Marie Slack on getting …
