A club record 38 members entered the popular Lavant mid-summer 5 mile race for Tone Zone runners on Wednesday 13th July. The event, organised by Chichester runners, leads runners out of Lavant village for a lap around Goodwood Motor Circuit and back again. It rewards all finishers with a cold beer and a hot burger, hence why it's so popular. There were many stand out performances for Tone Zone, Harry Annals was first for the club and 10th overall with a time of 29.44. Jess Thomson finished 3rd in her category in 36.10. Anna-Kari Enes completed the run in 36.48 which made her 1st of the over 45 females. Susi Briggs was 3rd in category with 41.08.
Another 5 mile race took place on Saturday afternoon at Queen Elizabeth country park in Hampshire. 1st to finish the undulating cross country course for the club was Tony Holcombe in 43.31. Sarah Stothard and Rebecca Jones enjoyed a sprint to the finish with Stothard just winning by a second. The race also saw Amanda Worne continue her marathon preparation with her bike-chair, with the help and support from friends and her daughter Amelia she finished the course in 1.07.59 which, considering how hilly the route was, is an amazing time.
Also at QE park were Simon Bodsworth and Jade Fish, running in the Southdowns Midnight Marathon. Runners start between 8.30pm and 9.30pm and run along the South Downs Way to Cocking before returning to the park, Simon completed the marathon in 5.17 with Jade taking 6 hours.
Paul Coe and Judith Blazeley ran the Invader Marathon at Bere Regis in Dorset.
The heat and hills made it particularly difficult but Coe finished in 4:35 and Blazeley 6.27.
