Great North 10K, 3rd July 2022

It was a new route for this year’s Great North 10K. Instead of starting and finishing at Gateshead Stadium, with the punishing climb up from the Tyne to end the race, it was a flat course, with an out and back each side of the river. Position Runner Time 234 Lucas de Rosa 45:09 600 …

La Selvarega Fell Race, 3rd July 2022

The Chevy Chase was not the only fell race to feature a Claremont Road Runner this weekend.  Over in his native north of Italy, Francesco Carrer completed the La Selvarega race.  I think Francesco had to contend with slightly warmer conditions than the Chevy Chasers!  He completed the 12.5 kilometre course, with 400m of climb, …

Chevy Chase, 2nd July 2022

Thanks to Richard Slack for this excellent report on the 65th Chevy Chase Fell Race. Well done to all who completed this challenging event: A fantastic 20 mile fell race with around 4,000 foot of ascent in the Cheviots, dominated by The Cheviot and Hedgehope Hill. For 2022, a small but merry band met up …

parkrun, 2nd July 2022

Another bright and breezy Saturday morning for parkrun in the North East this week, and another spread of parkruns covered by Claremont Road Runners. Congratulations to Laurie Johnson on 1st place at Carlisle Park, Morpeth and to Julie Cross on being first lady at Leazes. There were PBs for Fred Besse at Leazes and Nikki …

parkrun, 25th June 2022

It was a bright and breezy morning in the North East, and pretty good conditions for our weekly parkrun. The Claremont ladies excelled once again with first place finishes for Nikoletta Szlovak at Leazes and Sarah Kerr at Jesmond Dene, while Clare McKitterick was 2nd female at Blackhill. Nikki’s time was a PB too. Indeed, …

Claremont @ Weetslade, 22nd June 2022

It seems like we always have good weather for the Weetslade Relays and this year was no exception. Bright blue skies meant a good evening for photographers, marshals and officials, though it was perhaps a tad warm for the runners! It was also breezy in the more exposed parts and on the hill – so …

Weetslade Relays, 22nd June 2022

Many thanks to everybody who competed and officiated at the Weetslade Relays on a warm and sunny, if breezy, evening. We hope you all enjoyed it. Congratulations to Morpeth Harriers who edged out Sunderland Harriers in a close finish to take the title. Jarrow and Hebburn completed the podium. Sunderland did claim the prizes in …

Triathlons, 19th June 2022

Triathlons seem to be coming increasingly popular with club members, and we had two competing this weekend. Michael Teasdale took part in the Allerdale Sprint Triathlon at Allerdale Lakeland Park, Pocklington near York. This was a 750m swim followed by 20K on the bike and a 5K run. Michael completed the course in 1:46:51 to …

The Wall, 18th June 2022

The Wall is what you call a real challenge – essentially run the length of Hadrian’s Wall from Carlisle to Newcastle. That is a distance of over 70 miles across some beautiful, but undulating(!) countryside. Two Claremont Road Runners, Simon Lowe and Jack Shawcross, were mad enough to take on this ultra running challenge. Both …

Penshaw Trail Half, 19th June 2022

The Slacks took on this half-marathon (which is a bit over the half, really) organised by The Trail Outlaws and lived to tell the tale! In Richard’s words: “Tough trail run. Loads of up and down and stepped paths. Final mile up to Penshaw never ending and more steps! Lovely route.” Position Runner Time 136 …
