Renewal can be made anytime between now and the end of March 2018. The renewal rates Continue Reading →

Brampton to Carlisle 10 mile race.

The day started with me wishing I had jogging bottoms as soon as I got outside. Then the ongoing questions of what to wear and whether or not what I had chosen was being under dressed. It didn’t bode well as approaching Brampton seeing a thick layer of frost. Today’s race was going to be a chilly one indeed. I also forgot my trusty before race banana and after race ham sandwich. I Continue Reading →

Aykley Heads: Race report.

Ladies report from Nina When you say “Aykley Heads” to a cross country runner there are three words which spring to mind: two of them are “mud” and “hills”. The third is best not printed. After a dry week we woke to a sunny day on Saturday. These factors spread confusion and perplexity over the North East running community: spikes (and, if so, what length) or trails? There was many Continue Reading →

Sherman Cup / Davison shield

Heaton was very well represented at Saturday’s Sherman Cup/Davison Shield fixture at a somewhat breezy Temple Park. It was great to see several juniors running and all credit to the U13 girls, who turned out a full team and so boosted Heaton’s overall score. Although a bit windy (we all love the tour of the playing fields at the end into the teeth of a gale) the going was generally Continue Reading →
