Claus and Cram team up to launch Kielder Marathon 2018

From today's News Post leader @ https://www.newspostleader.co.uk/new...2018-1-8872012
Claus and Cram team up to launch Kielder Marathon 2018
Paul Larkin 23 November 2017


Santa starts his training early for the 2018 Active Northumberland Kielder Marathon Weekend, with event director Steve Cram.

A very special VIP has won the race to sign up for next year’s Kielder Marathon weekend as entries open today (Thursday).

Father Christmas took time out of his busy Winter Wonderland schedule at Northumbrian Water’s Landal Kielder Waterside to meet Marathon organiser and Olympian Steve Cram and become the first person to sign up for the Active Northumberland Kielder Marathon 2018.

Santa and Steve both made the most of the opportunity for some light training and the pair got their running gear on and took to the forest track to officially launch Britain’s Most Beautiful Marathon.

The marathon weekend will take place on October 6 and 7 at Kielder Waterside and entries for the weekend’s events, which include the Kielder Marathon, half-marathon, Run Bike Run and junior events, open at 8am. 2017 was a bumper year for the marathon and saw more than 3,000 runners take part in Britain’s Most Beautiful running events in front of around 9,500 spectators and organisers are expecting 2018 to be even bigger.

Race director Steve Cram said: “2017 was a huge success for everyone involved in the Active Northumberland Kielder Marathon and we are delighted to be working with Northumbrian Water, Northumberland Council and our other partners to bring the event back to the magnificent Kielder Water for the ninth year running. Popularity for Britain’s Most Beautiful Marathon is definitely growing, with entrants continuing to travel from all over the UK as well as from overseas to enjoy this unique running experience. We are anticipating 2018 to be another sell out so I’d urge anyone who is thinking of entering to get registered as soon as possible and to take advantage of the early-bird discount offer, which runs until December 31. As we get closer to our 10th anniversary in 2019, we are very much looking forward to continuing to improve this special event weekend and 2018 will be no different, other than welcoming Santa Claus for the first time!”.

Kielder Christmas tree goes up at Houses of Parliament

A Christmas tree grown in Northumberland has taken pride of place in London.

The 45-feet-tall Sitka spruce was taken from Kielder Forest to the Houses of Parliament, where it stands in New Palace Yard in the Palace of Westminster.

It is one of three trees sent to the heart of government by the Forestry Commission. Two smaller trees stand in Westminster Hall and the Speaker’s State Rooms. The Houses of Parliament Christmas trees have come from Kielder for the last 16 years.

46 acre Kielder holiday site snapped up

46 acre Kielder holiday site snapped up
Jamie Hardesty 5 December 2017



A couple originally hailing from North Wales have taken ownership of a 46 acre holiday lodge site in Northumberland, thanks to a six figure funding package from HSBC.

Acquiring Clear Sky Lodge Park, in Kielder, Jackie Bilton and David White have big plans to invest in the development of the site, upgrade existing facilities and expanding the business to include a caravan park. The site includes a choice of properties available to rent or purchase, including a stone stable which dates back to 1848 and has been converted in to a cottage, along with a range of lodges all with their own hot tub.

Jackie Bilton and David White say they were actively looking to acquire a business project which would suit their previous experience as a florist and builder who owned a groundwork company respectively. Jackie explained: “We were looking to purchase a project where we could really make our mark and we fell in love with the location of the site at Clear Sky Lodge as well as the potential to grow the business. The location in the heart of Kielder village is idyllic with visitors attracted to the range of activities on offer in the area and the beautiful countryside. Without the financial support received from HSBC we would not have been able to realise our business ambitions and purchase the site. We have plans to enhance the site and grow the business in both the short and long term.”

David, Area Director for Business Banking in the North East and Cumbria, added: “It’s fantastic to see the vision and potential growth Jackie and David have planned for this business. We are thrilled to support their acquisition of Clear Sky Lodge Park and the ambitions they have for it. It can only be positive for the North East, reinforcing the flourishing business landscape we have here.”

Kielder Waterside kicks off 2018 with double award win

From the Kielder Water web site @ http://www.visitkielder.com/news/201...uble-award-win
Kielder Waterside kicks off 2018 with double award win



Northumbrian Water's Kielder Waterside has started 2018 in award-winning style. Northumberland, scooped two major awards at the national 2018 Go Active conference and awards dinner that was held in Wales this week.

The team were awarded ‘Best Go Active team in the UK' and ‘Best New and Innovative Activity in the UK' in recognition of their hard work throughout 2017. The two awards build on the team's success from last year where they secured ‘Best UK Go Active Park' and ‘Best Instructor' awards at the same ceremony.

David Hall, Northumbrian Water's Head of Leisure Strategy and Transformation, said: "These most recent Go Active awards are testament to the hard work and commitment that the team at Landal Kielder Waterside put in every day and I want to congratulate them on this fantastic achievement/ The awards are given following a rigorous two day assessment that looks at everything that the team do - from health and safety, instructor assessments, to guest feedback and trip reviews - and it's clear from the feedback from our guests and these award wins that they are doing an amazing job."

2017 was an incredibly successful year for Landal Kielder Waterside with VisitEngland selecting the park to be one of the inaugural recipients of its ROSE award, in recognition of excellent customer service. The awards reflect the experiences of annual VisitEngland assessments, as well as online customer reviews.

The team also received the David Bellamy Conservation Gold Award for the 14th year running, with a particular commendation for the park's commitment to nurturing and improving the biodiversity of the site, and the Special Distinction Award in the 2017 David Bellamy Conservation Award Scheme - recognising the park's Osprey Watch offering.

Olympic legend Daley Thompson to join Kielder runners

Press release from Northumberland County Council @ http://www.northumberland.gov.uk/New...lder-runn.aspx
Olympic legend Daley Thompson to join Kielder runners
12 Sep 2018


© http://kieldermarathon.com/olympic-l...elder-runners/

Double Olympic Decathlon champion, Daley Thompson CBE, will be guest of honour at the Active Northumberland Kielder Marathon. he decathlon legend will join race organiser, fellow Olympic athlete and good friend, Steve Cram at the weekend of events, which takes place on Saturday October 6 and Sunday October 7, 2018.

Daley, who won decathlon gold medals at the Olympic Games in 1980 and 1984 and broke the world record in the event four times, will also be introducing his new range of DT10 Sports products to Kielder runners. The range, which includes protein drinks and bars, was developed together with Masterchef Gary Barnshaw, after Daley was disappointed at the high-levels of sugar content in similar products.

Every runner participating in the weekend will receive one of the new DT10 protein bars in their goody bags as they cross the finish line.
Daley will also join Steve for a question and answer session at The Boat Inn restaurant at Kielder Waterside on Saturday night, where competitors will be able to find out more about his legendary track history.

Steve Cram, said: "We're all really excited to have Daley joining us for this year's event. As someone who enjoys his cycling challenges now, I've been telling him how much he needs to get up to this stunning part of the world and see what Northumberland has to offer. 1,500m was always a ‘marathon distance' for Daley at the end of a decathlon, so getting him around 26.2 miles might be a push, but it will be great to have him at Kielder Waterside all weekend, meeting runners and supporters who will remember his extraordinary achievements back in the 80's!"

The Active Northumberland Kielder Marathon Weekend 2018 is delivered by Events of the North in conjunction with Northumbrian Water, Active Northumberland, Northumberland County Council and Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.

The weekend's events, which attract runners from all across the UK, are all based around Northumbrian Water's picturesque Kielder Reservoir and waterside sites and include the Marathon, Half Marathon, 10k and the Run Bike Run.

A busload of celebrations for Kielder Marathon's 10th anniversary

Press release from Northumberland County Council @ https://www.northumberland.gov.uk/Ne...athon-s-1.aspx
A busload of celebrations for Kielder Marathon's 10th anniversary
06 Dec 2018



Britain's most beautiful marathon returns next year, with entries now open for its tenth anniversary.

Founder and Olympic athlete, Steve Cram, was on hand to launch the tenth Active Northumberland Kielder Marathon, taking place on 12 and 13 October 2019, together with a group of runners who've taken part in every marathon since it started.

Showcasing the nation's favourite holiday county, the 26.2mile course is based around Northumbrian Water's picturesque Kielder Reservoir in Northumberland, and organisers are encouraging runners to get in early to secure a spot.

The weekend of events, which saw just three events Iaunched in its first year - the Run Bike Run duathlon, the junior runs and the marathon itself - now includes a 10k race, added in 2011, and, in 2014, a half marathon and a walk were added.

From just 975 participants in 2010, there are now more than 3,000 runners from across the UK and even the world, who take part in the events across the weekend, and it draws in a further 5,000 spectators to the region.

It's had its fair share of memorable moments over the years too, including its first marriage proposal in 2013, its oldest marathon runner in 2016 at 77-years-old and not forgetting of course, the 2011 runner who shaved six miles off the course and finished in third place by catching the bus.

The Active Northumberland Kielder Marathon Weekend is delivered by Events of the North in conjunction with Northumbrian Water, Active Northumberland, Northumberland County Council and Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.

Race director and founder, Steve Cram CBE, said: "It's fantastic to be launching our tenth Kielder Marathon with our partners and some of our best supporters, the ‘ever presents', those runners who have been with us since year one.

"The last decade has seen the event grow and develop into something we're all very proud of. The Active Northumberland Kielder Marathon showcases the best of a region that's now been recognised as the UK's favourite county destination, and we're delighted that every year we can welcome runners from afar to experience this stunning part of the world. Reaching a decade of delivering the event is also a time to celebrate and thank all of our volunteers, partners and staff who make it possible year on year to deliver. We're all very much looking forward to our special anniversary and 2019 will undoubtedly be a tenth birthday to remember."

Councillor Cath Homer, Cabinet Member for Culture, Arts, Leisure and Tourism at Northumberland County Council, said: "Every year the Kielder Marathon weekend grows in popularity and profile which is fantastic. With Northumberland recently being crowned as the UK's Best Destination in the British Travel Awards, there's never been a better time to visit. Kielder provides an idyllic setting that gives contestants and their families the perfect spot to explore everything that Northumberland has to offer, often meaning they come back time and time again. I'd encourage those who haven't been before to experience it for themselves, and help make our 10 year celebrations the best yet."

Northumbrian Water's David Hall, Head of Leisure Strategy and Transformation, said: "We're very proud to be able to provide the perfect backdrop to celebrate a decade of Britain's most beautiful marathon. It's put Kielder in the hearts of thousands of athletes, creating thousands of memories and we can't wait to welcome visitors back from far and wide for what will be a very special tenth birthday."

Kielder Observatory gets the go-ahead for new planetarium

Plans have been approved for a new planetarium at Kielder Observatory in Northumberland. Newcastle-based JDDK Architects secured the go-ahead on behalf of the observatory, paving the way for a new attraction at the scientific tourist destination.

Located a few miles from the Scottish border, within the world’s third-biggest protected Dark Sky reserve, Kielder Observatory opened in 2008 and today hosts more than 40 astronomical events each month. The new planetarium will widen the facility’s offer for daytime visitors or on cloudy nights when visibility is poor. The planetarium and the two observatories will be set around a central ‘Village Square’ to create a real sense of place for the whole attraction whilst the external landscaping will be retained as a natural setting.

Kielder Observatory operations director John Holmes commented: “We are looking forward to securing funds for the planetarium which would be a very valuable asset to our range of facilities particularly in relation to our expanding educational programme.”
