Club Races: Cross-Country & Relays
As a club, Claremont Road Runners participate in a number of local inter-club competitions – these split into cross-country competitions and a variety of relay races. These events are open to all club members – the club pays the entrance fees and organises lifts to the venues.
The 2019-20 North East Harrier League was unfortunately cut short due to the national lockdown, but not before the Claremont Ladies had ensured promotion as champions of Division Three. Well done!
Unfortunately, the 2020/21 Harrier League did not happen at all, but the dates or the 2021/22 season have now been confimed. Please put these in your diary:

Upcoming Club Relay Races
With the lifting of restrictions, inter-club relay races will no longer be virtual affairs but real events!
