parkrun, 28th August 2021

It was a sunny and warm day in the North East, much warmer than the days before or afterwards.

3 parkruns, 3 countries

Gosforth Summer Relays, 8th August 2021

The return of real relay running made for a very enjoyable morning in Newcastle Great Park as 6 Claremont teams competed in the Gosforth Summer Relays.
