Fun in the sun!
Fifteen Tone Zone Runners swapped the cold temperatures of Bognor for some winter warmth and flew to Spain to take part in the Benidorm Half Marathon. First to finish for the club was Simon Gill in 1.17, although he was disappointed with that time as he slowed in the 2nd half of the race. The majority of the runners finished within 12 minutes of each other but one runner who was just pleased to finish was Glenn Penfold. With only 6 miles ran in the last 8 months he decided to give the race a try. The first 8 miles went well but then the lack of running took its toll but he struggled on to complete the run in just under 2 hours, afterwards he said that the last 4 miles were the toughest of his life but was over the moon to have completed the half marathon.
At the Hayling Island 10 mile, Jessica Thomson and Nathan Bilham continued their great recent form, both achieving personal bests of 1.15.47 and 1.25.33 respectively. Joan Woolley ran in the Martello Marathon where she came 1st in her age group in 5.19.53
On Friday 18th November Paul Coe embarked on an amazing challenge to run 3 marathons in consecutive days. Incredibly Paul completed all three in around 4 hours 20 minutes. The Mouth to Mouth Ultra marathon is 27.5 mile run from the river Adur in Shoreham to the Arun in Littlehampton. Paul Coe also ran this to make it 4 marathons in 8 days and his 41st in total.
