On CloudVenture Running Shoes Review

On Cloudventure Review, Testing and First Impressions — Day 1: House test – worn indoors for two hours. My first thought is that the Cloudventure has plenty of width.

It is important not to skip these early stages. Day 3: An easy run around the local park. On grass, damp conditions.... Read More

Whorlton Run 2016 Results

Great to see Darlington Harriers and Aycliffe Running Club making their mark on the fell scene, must admit the ladies team competition was closer than I thought, only a point separated NYMAC from Darlington Harriers, Aycliffe RC and New Marske Harriers who tied on points.

Running in Altra Zero Drop Shoes – My Transition

From a 12mm Drop Heel Striker to Zero Drop At Northern Runner we have written the odd Altra Zero Drop running shoe review.
