Seafront 10k is a breeze for TZ team

Bognor Tone Zone’s Jack Penfold kept the Bognor Tone Zone flag flying high as he tamed breezy conditions to land a top ten finish in the West Worthing 10k.

 

With strong winds blowing around the UK this weekend there was very little chance of personal bests being set.

 

But a very impressive turnout of 15 club members completed the seafront West Worthing 10k, which saw the second half run head first into strong gusts.

 

First to finish and seventh overall was Penfold in 40 minutes 9 seconds.

 

Daryl Fairbrother ran a strong race to finish under 45 minutes. Buddies Carl Bryant and Andy Miles finished in 51 minutes, just ahead of Natalie Tribe in 53.29 and Andrew Medlock in 56.35, with Zoe Hemes just sneaking under the hour mark with a time of 59.22.

 

Then came a flurry of blue and orange vests with Vicky Cooper, Sarah Spurr, Debi Haddleton, Catriona Power and Michelle Lloyd all finishing under 1 hour 5 minutes.

 

Rebecca Holden, Lea Hodgkins and Juliette Garrett all ran fine races against the strong wind to finish in 1.05.28, 1.06 and 1.06.57.

 

Despite the conditions, there was one PB for the weekend which came the way of Leigh Paige, who ran a personal best of 2.18 at the Surrey Half Marathon.

 

Joan Wooley was competing in another marathon this weekend, the Larmer Tree Marathon in Salisbury. She finished the tough hilly marathon in 7 hours 33 minutes.

 

Over in Cambridge were running duo Derek and Grace Natoli. Derek ran the half in 2.06 while Grace took on the marathon challenge and finished just under the 5 hour mark.

 

–The second leg of the Chichester Corporate Challenge saw hundreds of runners take to the streets of the city centre on Wednesday evening.
