The crazy Claremont contingent (Nina’s words, not mine!) were out in force today for the North East Marathon event at the Leas, South Shields. As it was Rose Hawkswood’s 30th birthday, she had always planned a 30 mile run (how else do you celebrate?) and so Nina Jensen was able to convince her to do it today. Nina ran with Rose and, in doing so completed her 50th marathon. Mary Martin completed her 10th marathon, accompanied by Marie Slack and Julie Dumpleton, whilst Clare McKitterick ran a marathon and a bit more!
