parkrun, 25th December 2019

A parkrun is becoming an increasingly popular way to start Christmas Day. So it was again this year, with around 25 Claremont runners starting their day this way on the 25th. The diaspora that happens at this time of the year resulted in the parkruns being scattered around the UK. Members ran in Carlisle, Coventry, Gateshead, …

Parkrun, 21st December 2019

Approaching Christmas there were lots of fancy-dressed parkrunners and marshals on view.  At Leazes, the prize for best dressed went to Gill Milne!  Her magic wand seemed to have been working since Gill, and Paul Hughes, ran PBs there.  Congratulations to those two as well as Luke Woodend, who ran a PB at Jesmond Dene. …

parkrun, 14 December 2019

Turn out at local parkuns was comparatively low this week. Perhaps the cool weather, the proximity to Christmas or the North Eastern Cross Country Championships held in Alnwick later in the day affected turnout.  As usual many Claremont members volunteered at Leazes. Claremont runners were found at just three locations: Leazes, Newcastle and Whitley Bay. Congratulations …

parkrun, 7th Dec 2019

The weather was kinder and perhaps because of this there were lots of parkruns this week.  Many were running in Leazes park to celebrate Lucy’s 100th parkrun.  Congratulations to Lucy.  Also to Kris Axon for a PB and second place, despite being impeded by some of the slower runners.

parkrun, 30th November 2019

A cold clear night dropped temperatures in Newcastle to -4 C leading to cancellation of 6 of 9 parkruns in Tyne and Wear. Most Claremont runners or volunteers were at Leazes parkrun.  Leazes only went ahead with a slightly altered route avoiding the worst ice patches and adding 105 m to the course length.  Chris …

parkrun, 23rd November 2019

It was a grey, wet and miserable day for running or volunteering at parkruns. It was also the day for the NEHL cross country fixture at Aykley Heads, so for lots of reasons turn out at parkruns was poor. Credit must be given to Bill, Maria, Nina and Roberto who ran or volunteered at Parkruns …

parkrun, 16th November 2019

A fairly miserable, wet morning was no barrier to 4 Claremonters recoding PBs this week, so well done to Tara at Newcastle, Catherine at Leazes, Nicki at Whitley Bay and Luke at Jesmond Dene (though I’m sure Luke can go faster than that!).Kris Axon is also to be commended on an excellent 3rd place at …

parkrun, 9th November 2019

Lots of people missed their parkrun fix this weekend as both Newcastle and Leazes parkruns were cancelled due to ice.
