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 …

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 …

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 …

The Town Moor benefited from an influx of Claremont Road runners this week as there was no Leazes parkrun due to another event in the park, There was also a good spread of Sky Blues around the North East and some excellent performances.

Caffarella parkrun, 9th April 2022

In numerous visits to see our son in Florence, we had never yet made it to the local parkrun. On this trip we were having a week in Florence, then a weekend in Rome. Post-pandemic, the Florence run has moved to a park on the outskirts of the city that we didn’t know. We had …

While a few of us were resting our legs for the North Tyneside 10K, there were still plenty of Claremonters getting their weekly parkrun fix. As well as spreading ourselves around the North East, Luke Woodend was in Cheshire in beautiful Delamere Forest and Julie Cross was on the North Wales coast. Mungai Wairia, injured …

Back in the North East, there were PBs for Nicki O’Brien (for the 2nd week running) and Nina Jentl. Nicki was …

parkrun, 2nd April 2022

Sadly Leazes parkrun was cancelled this week due to a lack of volunteers. It was brave of the Leazes team to take this decision and a real shame that it had to happen. Events like parkrun can only take place when people give up their time (and their own run) to marshal, scan barcodes or …

parkrun, 26th March 2022

It was a beautiful, sunny morning for parkrunners throughout the North East today as it felt more like summer than spring! Alice will certainly miss our lovely climate when she moves down under, but it was fitting that the sun shone on Leazes Park to say “Au revoir”. Numbers at Leazes were swelled by a …
