founded our club in 2010 there had been too few opportunities to run
the North East. Instead members had to travel huge distances and
pay out ever increasing amounts, often with little in return, to
complete 26.2 miles. Now we have to contend with paying out ever
increasing amounts for events in our area. The NEMC intends to rectify
this situation by
promoting events nearer home via our affiliation to the Association of
Running Clubs (ARC). Our philosophy is to organise no frills, no fuss, low cost, scenic marathons for local runners in our local area. Our Club aims to be the focal point for local marathoners to
share ideas and experiences, provide mutual support and encouragement as
well as provide companionship and cost-sharing for more distant
events. It is open to anyone regardless of age or ability and no
matter how many marathons they've completed. Newcomers to marathon
running are especially welcome. For more information email Melanie.
OUR NEXT EVENT: Winter Wonder 5, 18th March, 9:00am, Ashington Community Woods ENTER HERE.
CLUB KIT: Vests £10, Tshirts £12 and hoodies £18 in small, medium, large and extra large. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to order.
Remembering Mick Sherriff, one of the Club's founder members, who sadly passed away on November 29th 2012.
Winter Wonder 2
There has been rain overnight and the ice has melted in the west end of Newcastle. There may be some slippy bits on the course so watch out! It is also VERY windy.
Winter Wonder 2 31.12.17
The event will be ON tomorrow, but running will be at the risk of the individual entrant. The ice was thawing at 2pm but some of the paths on the route had a covering of ice and sleet. If you choose to run, it is advised that you wear trail shoes or spikes, and bring plenty of warm clothing with you. See you tomorrow!
Well done Claire, 12 marathons in 12 months for charity, completed yesterday!
