Gosforth Summer Relays, 4th August 2019

It was a hot and humid morning in Newcastle Great Park for the Gosforth Relays this year. As the Great Park continues to develop, more of the paths are now tarmac than before, so I think this helped produce some fast times. We had 4 Claremont teams, distributed nicely with one in each category – …

Kentmere Horseshoe Fell Race, 28th July 2019

Richard Slack seems to have acquired a taste for fell races in the Lake District. His latest adventure was the Kentmere Fell Race, which he says was great fun (I’m not sure that 1,000 metres of ascent over 12.3 miles is my idea of a fun race!).  Richard’s time seems excellent to me – so …
