parkrun, 16th October 2021

It was a cool still morning and fewer Claremont runners than usual ran this week.  Well done to Laurie for getting a PB at Leazes park and to all our runners and volunteers. Full results available via the parkrun link.

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 …

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 …

parkrun, 25th September 2021

Despite a number of runners saving themselves for the cross-country in the afternoon, and two Sky Blues in Berlin for Sunday’s marathon, there were still a fair few Claremonters getting their weekly parkrun fix across the North East and beyond. Indeed, Marie, David and Anthony used parkrun as a cross-country warm-up! Marie also set a …

parkrun, 18th September 2021

After the influx of visitors last week due to the Great North Run, it was business as usual at the local parkruns this morning – though a number of runners were sporting GNR t-shirts! There was the customary good turnout of Sky Blues at Leazes, volunteering and running. Sarah Kerr followed her very impressive performance …

parkrun, 11th September 2021

There was no parkrun on the Town Moor this morning due to tomorrow’s Great North Run, which meant higher than usual attendances with lots of visiting runners for Leazes, Jesmond Dene and other local events. The proximity to the GNR also meant that a lot of Sky Blues chose to marshal, have an easy run …

parkrun, 4th September 2021

Perhaps this weekend signalled the end of holiday parkrun tourism, but Claremonters managed to spread themselves around 7 different events in the North East. A special well done to Kris Axon on winning in his first ever outing at Whitley Bay. Elsewhere, Mark Anderson chalked up a PB whilst finishing 3rd at Rising Sun, and …

parkrun, 28th August 2021

It was a sunny and warm day in the North East, much warmer than the days before or afterwards. Many from Claremont enjoyed the conditions and ran or volunteered at local parkruns.  Some were running further afield, with Kris and Maddie getting course PBs down in Cornwall.  Leazes was cancelled again, so the biggest turn-out was on …

3 parkruns, 3 countries

Julie Cross has been touring around parkruns. I am not a parkrun bagger, not even close, only clocked 31 to date, but I can lay claim to 3 in 3 countries – the first in each of those countries post lockdown. Is that a record? I’ll take it if so.  Parkrun  no. 1: Leazes Park, …

parkrun Saturday 21st August 2021

It was wet and drizzly Saturday morning.  But it was quite warm and not too windy, so not the worst day for a parkrun.  Leazes parkrun was cancelled because triathletes were swimming round the pond and it’s holiday time, so our runners were spread far and wide.  It was a good PB day – Laurie Johnson, Izzy Neatrour, …
