Marie Slack is across the pond where she found time to run a 10 mile race in Prospect Park, Brooklyn. The website advertises it as “The Race for the Hardcore” so Marie’s time of 1:33:27 seems more than respectable.

Well done.

It was a beautiful morning for blowing the cobwebs away, so much so that a number of people doubled it and did two parkruns! Matt, Dan and Charlotte did the coastal duo of Newbiggin-by-the-Sea and Druridge Bay, Paul did Newbiggin and Rising Sun, whilst Mungai and Luke opted for Riverside and Rising Sun.

22:46 Dan Edwards
22:47 Charlotte Baston

Penrith parkrun

Rising Sun parkrun

The turnout of 869 runners was much higher than usual for Rising Sun and this caused problems for runners finishing after about 24 minutes or so who had to queue to get to the finish line.  The volunteer marshals coped admirably with and with the fact that they ran out of finish tokens!

After a festive jog around town and the Christmas markets, we gathered at the Old George for the annual Christmas party.

As well as the food and drink, there were, of course, the prestigious annual Claremont Road Runners awards. The overall winner was Alice Vialard for her numerous achievements throughout the year, none of which I can remember!

Richard Slack was the lucky winner of the draw for the London Marathon place, so h will able to join Marie for a family day out running around the streets of the capital. Unfortunately, Roberto Marzo couldn’t attend to receive the Colin Archibold Trophy for being first male in the Northumberland Coastal Run.

Hopefully everybody had a good time. Thanks to Mary and, as ever, Mungai for the photos, the full set of which can be found on Flickr below.
