NEHL Aykley Heads, 2rd Nov 2019

Last cross-country I heard a number of people bemoaning the lack of mud on the courses – they will certainly not be able to make the same complaint this year! I thought that no course could ever be muddier than my first experience of Thornley Hall Farm a couple of years ago, but I was …

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 …

NEMC Town Moor Marathon, 17th Nov 2019

As usual, the North East Marathon Club’s annual Town Moor Marathon was well supported by Claremont Road Runners. As well as providing 10 participants for the full and half-marathons, Claremont also manned the drinks (and snacks) station stationed at the end of each lap. I think everybody who runs lap after lap around the Moor …

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 …

Saturn Running Remembrance Run, 10th November 2019

This was an event with a choice of distances from 5K to Ultras. Four Claremonters all made different choices – Marie Slack doing 10 miles, Mary Martin the half-marathon, Bill Milbourne ran 20 miles with Nina Jensen running over 50K (would we expect anything else?). Well done everyone!

parkrun, 9th November 2019

Lots of people missed their parkrun fix this weekend as both Newcastle and Leazes parkruns were cancelled due to ice. Fortunately, some made it to Jesmond Dene and a few of us were out and about around the country. Edinburgh 20:58 Matt Kerry Prudhoe Riverside 21:18 Roberto Marzo St Helens 20:41 Tom Tinsley Whitley Bay …

The Middlesbrough Mile

Howard MacLennan was down on Teesside for a mile race: “A new event by Stride Out Events, using a purpose built cycle course at Middlesbrough Sports Village. Challenging night; being very cold, ground wet, but the rain just held off during my race. It wasn’t my fastest Mile, a couple of inclines didn’t help, but …
