parkrun roundup: 17th November 2012

On a busy weekend of racing, several members found time to participate in their local parkrun event.     In Newcastle, 5 members tackled the Town Moor clarts, and having been present at both Newcastle parkrun and the Cross-country at Blaydon, I’d say the parkrunners had the worst of the conditions.

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 …

parkrun roundup – 1st September 2012

Giving the fact there were two big races the following day, there was (unsurprisingly) a fairly low turnout by club members at Newcastle parkrun on Saturday.  Nevertheless, Sparrow and TC managed to entertain all those at the finishing line by having a minor tiff towards the end of the run. Apparently, there had been some sort of …
