By Richard Slack

After spending a week at the IAAF world athletics, Richard and Marie ran the London Summer 10k, based in Regent’s Park. Sunday morning was greeted with glorious weather of blue sky and a gentle breeze – lovely for the viewed of this stunning park although maybe a bit warm for running but plenty of shade through the park. The run is a 3 lapper, and predominantly flat, running past the Lake, then up the central boulevard before a dogleg loop leading past the London zoo and then returning to the start/finish line. A beautiful royal park to run around which was well marshalled throughout. The run itself was relatively low key, although with a good selection of club runners, with only around 400 entrants which may well be limited as rather like a parkrun it was on shared paths through the entire route. Very enjoyable end to a superb week with the final night of athletics and the 4x400m relays to now look forward to.

Richard 49.00
Marie 56.55

A full complement of 6 Claremont teams took part in the Gosforth Relays this morning.  Some good performances all around and the older members amongst us came away laden with booze and chocolates (makes a change from Start Fitness vouchers)!  Julie Dumpleton was fastest lady over 50, Mary Martin fastest over 60 and I am enjoying being in my new age category as I was also fastest over 60.

Team positions and times as below (Lucy and Dean would like to point out that they made a wrong turn and added 100m or so to their route):

Position Leg 1 Time Leg 2 Time Leg 3 Time Team Time
5th Sumanth Nayak 11:38 Paul Robinson 11:28 Anthony Liddle 12:05 35:11
19th Nicki O’Brien 13:40 Sarah Kerr 14:17 Lucy Dunbar 14:46 42:43
20th Howard MacLennan 13:59 Chris Carr 14:36 Dean O’Brien 14:13 42:48
21st Tom Tinsley 12:07 Dave Kear 16:07 Ken McCormick 15:55 44:09
22nd Jane Evans 14:10 Julie Dumpleton 15:56 Sarah Bowen 14:13 44:19
26th Mary Martin 16:30 Alice Vialard 15:55 Nina Jensen 14:37 47:02

Gill was there and took these photos of Claremont Road Runners present and future:

Update 2: Winter and Spring Cups added to spreadsheet
Update: Link to results amended

It was a perfect summer’s day for the 43 Claremonters (and guests) who turned out to race around the Town Moor. Anthony Liddle, who has made an excellent improvement in the past month, was the first Claremonter home and defended the title he won in the Spring Handicap. The Summer Cup was won by Mungai but it was a close contest between him and Robyn, who may have been handicapped slightly unfairly! Fortunately for her, she will have another chance to win it as they are both through to the Autumn Cup final along with Howard MacLennan and Dave Kear.

Many thanks as always to Bill, Lorna, Terry, Tom (the handicapper), all the marshals and Marie for sorting out the food at the pub. The next handicap is provisionally at the end of October on the Quayside.

Full results are here.
