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 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 …

Virtual Gordon Smith Relays, 24th to 30th May 2020

As with many events at this strange time, this year’s Gordon Smith Relays were a virtual affair, with runners choosing their own 2 mile route and running alone against the clock.  Claremont entered 10 teams, 5 male and 5 female.  There were some good performances, particularly a 7th place finish for our “elite” ladies.   …

Virtual Spring Handicap, 27th April 2020

As we have had to leave the Town Moor cows grazing on the hills in peace, this year’s Spring Handicap has been a virtual affair. The protocol was to run 5K on a course that had as much up as down and submit your time. Amazingly, 46 runners took part, running in a variety of …

Run Northumberland Races, Ovingham, 15th March 2020

Two Claremont Road Runners were out in the windy Northumberland countryside for this event – Mungai Wairia tackled the half-marathon and Roberto Marzo took on the Big 20 Miler. Mungai won his age category (of course!) in a time of 1:47:35. Meanwhile Roberto Marzo completed the undulating 20 mile course, finishing 7th overall, in the …

NEHL Lambton Estate, 14th March 2020

A new venue for the NE Harrier League at Lambton Estate which, thankfully, went ahead following an earlier postponement due to flooding. Another great performance from the Claremont Ladies with a first place finish that puts them top of Division 3 with just one event to go (and a fair chance that that event will …
