Gibside 10k, 1st May 2024

Two Claremont Road Runners went for a run up some hills this Wednesday evening. Lynne Cornell reports: “As per 2023 I entered this race before I knew about the NEMAA relays plus I had company this time – a friend who fancied a trot around Gibside. We arrived at a slightly misty Gibside and proceeded …

NEMAA Relays, 1st May 2024

Claremont was represented by 5 teams in this year’s North East Masters Relay Championships. This event always has a more relaxed feel than other relays with fewer teams, fewer club tents – and no speedy youngsters! Although the race took place at the traditional venue of Bedewell Park / Campbell Park in Jarrow (with Race …

Team Captain’s Award Winner 2024: Holly Porter

Following Gill Milne’s win in 2023, this season’s Team Captain’s award went to a relative newcomer, having only completed the Couch to 5k programme with Claremont a year ago: Holly Porter.

Jason Hall, England International

This weekend will see the Copenhagen Marathon take place and it will be a momentous occasion for former Claremont Road Runner Jason Hall. Jason ran with us whilst he was studying in Newcastle, but moved to Leeds at the end of his course. This was initially a tough time for Jason as it coincided with …

Spring Handicap, 29th April 2024

Well done to Giovany Orozco on winning the handicap race this evening, and to Anton Mirafsari on retaining the quarterly knockout cup. It hasn’t felt very spring-like in the build-up to our return to the Town Moor for this year’s Spring Handicap, and the very wet weather that we have had recently meant that there …

Barry Budon Half-Marathon, 28th April 2024

Thanks to Lucy Ward for sending in this race report: “I headed up to Dundee for an aptly timed and hopefully a scenic half, to test my progress since joining CRR back in January. It ended up an interesting run on a firing range and not quite as scenic as hoped (sand dunes and trees …

Sheffield Half Marathon, 7th April 2024

A belated report from Paul Bastow: “A race that started next to The Crucible in Sheffield city centre, then out in to the countryside climbing 1125ft (according to my Strava) giving great views of the Peak District, and back again. The race also incorporates a ‘triple test’ giving entrants a chance to be crowned Peaks …

Newport Marathon, 28th April 2024

Tara Hipwood sends this report from south-east Wales: “Some of you may be aware that the Newport Marathon has been a much-anticipated race for me. I had signed up last year but had to pull-out due to family commitments. Since last year, the programme of races for the weekend has been extended to include not …

parkrun, 27th April 2024

A week after the London Marathon, and Claremont was thriving at parkrun, with our presence felt at no fewer than 17 events. New member Sophie Ellam popped home to Yorkshire to run at Barnsley, Tom & Gill were also on family-visiting duty at a congested 600th event for Princes Park in Liverpool, and David Roberts …

London Marathon, 21st April 2024

For many, this is “the” marathon and 7 Claremont Road Runners were lucky enough to take part this year. For some it was their first every marathon and all had their own targets, but I think that they have all done themselves and the club proud! Here are some of their thoughts and experiences: Lynne …
