parkrun roundup – 27th October 2012

In the lead up to Saturday’s Newcastle parkrun, the town moor was hit by several sleet showers and the organisors were left with the difficult decision of whether to go ahead with the event. Thankfully they agreed it could, on the proviso that the runners used their common sense (runners and common sense?), and even though the course was …

Original Mountain Marathon (OMM) – 27th and 28th October 2012

Intrepid club member, John Tollitt, sends this race report.             ‘Fancy doing the OMM with me?’ I was asked a few months ago by Geoff Davis, a fellow Northumberland Fell Runner, at the start of a fell race in Durham. I said that I’d think about and then asked a …

Newcastle (Town Moor) Marathon – 28th October 2012

Dave Moir sends in this report from Sunday’s race. Mud, Mud Glorious Mud After a rather disappointing outcome at Chester 3 weeks ago (unable to run due to a pre-race chest infection) I sort of wanted to replace it with another marathon, as I was still in fairly good marathon shape. I toyed with the …

Jedburgh Half Marathon – 28th October 2012

Amsterdam marathon – 21 October 2012

The club’s very own shining star, David Daniels, writes this report. Following the disappointment of dropping out of a race, what you need, in order to make those inner demons disappear, is to enter another as quickly as possible. So, two weeks after my failure to finish the Chester marathon, I was standing on the …

Amsterdam marathon – 21st October

Guy Rintoul reports from Amsterdam My preparation for Amsterdam had been lacklustre, to say the least. Unlike my first [and only other] marathon in Edinburgh in May, I didn’t do enough training for this one – only 55% of the miles, in fact. This was partly because I was running it alone this time and …
