Country To Capital (C2C) 43 Miler, Wendover – 8 January 2021

It was definitely not a day for PB’s today. Thank you to your team for making this possible despite the elements of the weather. Wet/windy and cold not a great mix but very pleased to finish and win the trophy again. I finished first place 6.04 and also missed the start to busy chatting, I […]

Battersea 10k, London – 22nd December

Final race of the year last night, I just couldn’t find 5th gear but a respectable run post weekend trace and now being in marathon training. Lovely to catch up with a former team mate and Rachel who raced with me last week at the cross country. I’ve run more miles this year than I […]

South of Thames 7.5mile XC, Beckingham

Saturday 18th December 2021, A terrific day for the Belles with an emphatic win in the team championship plus individual gold for Rachel Brown and bronze for me and first Vet. The race was held in Beckenham Place Park, a venue now often used for cross country races since the local council abandoned the golf […]

Goodwood Half Marathon, 5th December 2021

A full on day and wind swept at Goodwood, Chichester and then out in the cold again for a dog walk. I went short with a half marathon which I am so grateful, turned our to be hard conditions and stronger winds than last years event. I tried to block out the wind and wore […]

Priory Relays & London Champs – Nov 2021

6th November 2021 We had Two Belgrave women’s teams made the trip to Reigate to compete in what is one of my favourite team events for Cross Country with a mix of hills, mud and fast sections. A good testing 4km course against the backdrop of beautiful autumnal trees, excellent and friendly organisation by the […]

Elite Gloucester 24hr – 22/23rd October 2021

This was a race I wasn’t expecting to squeeze in so soon and probably for most one race too many. Having attempted the British record in September and failing due to the heat, I wanted to at least go for a qualification. After a number of factors conspired against me during Battersea in September with […]

Belgrave SEAA Relays – 9 October 2021

Oct 9th 2021 We saw the return to the road relays event which I love. A long way to Birmingham to run under 5k but a great club atmosphere. I actually ran my second fastest time since 2016, whilst not my 15:15 best ran 15:58 post many ultra runs over the last few months. The […]

Surrey League XC, Richmond Park – 16 October 2021

The highly competitive Surrey League cross country competition returned after a 20-month absence with outstanding performances from both Belgrave senior teams at Richmond Park. “Belles dominant in first league match” What a day! What a team! What a result! No less than 18 members of this terrific squad turned out in drizzly conditions in this […]

ACP 100k, Ireland – 21st August 2021

A week on and still reflecting on a race that had many tales that turned. It was hard for me having run the 24hr, not expecting the race to happen so the planning had changed a bit. Having felt off pace reverted back from the 50k back to the 100k. Arriving in Dublin on the […]

Race Round Up – August 2021

SAL Match3 – August 2021 – Planned originally just for 3000m but with light numbers thought I may get roped into a few more events. Training was planned with 40 mins post event. However post warm up and running the 3k which was slightly slower than last month I went in also as the ” […]
