Surrey Spitfire & Tempest 2016
It was another busy weekend for the runners of Bognor Regis Tone Zone. A club record of 27 members made their way to the Top Gear Test Track at Dunsfold to take part in the Surrey Spitfire and Tempest races.
First home for the club in the 20 mile Spitfire race was Chris Gallagher who continued his excellent 2016 form with a personal best time of 2.36.16, Chris is running really well and its looking like he will have a great season. Laura Newell also had a great run taking almost 10 minutes off last years time, she completed the course with a PB of 2.58.27.
In the 10 mile race, Adam Norgett was the first Tone Zoner home and Natalie King continued to improve in her races and finished in 1.35.23.
Andy Miles was the only club runner to make his way to Woking for the Surrey Half, it was worth while as he achieved a great time of 1.48.18.
The greatest performance of the weekend however was by Amanda Worne, who as many will know had a bike accident last August. She once again put on her race vest but this time it was to wheel herself round the 5k Bognor Parkrun. She bravely completed the Parkrun in 48 minutes and despite being exhausted said that "it felt awesome to be back" and everyone at the club echoes those words, well done Mandy!
