SEAA Cross Country, Brighton – Saturday 27th January 2018

A TOUGH DAY ON THE DOWNS The venue at Stanmer Park is usually a favourite of Belgrave Harriers with happy memories from the last visit in 2015 when both men and women’s teams won silver team medals.  This year, however, proved very different. Travel to the venue proved lengthy with both rail replacement and M23 […]

Gloucester 50k – Sunday 14th January 2018

What can I say on a windy/cold day and feeling somewhat underprepared for 50k and nervous  I didn’t know what to expect.  We started with a false start and then had to get into my head on how I could tackle 5 laps and stay sane.  From the offset, I stayed in the first position and […]

New Years Eve 10 miler – 31st January 2018

Decided on racing one of Norman’s races to finish the end of the year to try and build morale from the last month so trying to find my form.  Norman has been providing me support/guidance and aligning to Rodger my coach to get me on track to run a qualifying 100k.  Sadly from May 2017, […]

South Of Thames 7.5 Miles XC – Saturday 16th December 2017

“Silver Medal for Belle’s” Belgrave have a fine recent record in this popular Championship race in which many teams struggle to find a strong scoring six runners. With many of the team suffering from illness or injury, the 13 Belles who were entered ended up with only the bare six on the day, with co-skipper  Megan […]


The opportunity for a County Vest for Buckinghamshire again, although I felt unfit on the X country front wanted to test the fitness and continue to build up my racing.  Having run here in the past was hoping I could run a reasonable race. Sadly the start was a mass field and ended up running […]

Valencia Marathon – 19th November 2017

This wasn’t the way I wanted to start a marathon or finish 2017 but a step in the right direction.  Most of you will know I have had a battle with Glandular fever which truth be told probably started mid-December but wasn’t diagnosed until my wobble and DNF in Seville February 2017. Since then its been a […]

Reigate Priory Relays – Saturday 4th November

ANOTHER GOOD DAY FOR THE BELLE’S –  SILVER MEDALS AT REIGATE The Priory Relays have become one of the club’s favorite events over the past few years. Set in the beautiful location of the Priory Park with the backdrop of the trees on the hill with their golden Autumn leaves, the shortish but challenging course […]

South of England AA Relays – Saturday 21st October 2017

My come back race after a disastrous year of not finishing or starting races sadly including an attempt at 100k in Winshouten.  I thought the best way after a 6-week race break was to do a team event with less pressure.  40 mile hr winds greeted no less than twelve Belgrave women starting the 3-Stage […]

Fighting the elements of Glandular….

The plan from Now until September From March being diagnosed with glandular fever has been my biggest battle yet despite also having capsulitis and also hamstring issues.  The list goes on with the band aids over the body and the body is fragile. Things started to improve in April and the reason I went ahead […]

Another 3000m & 5000m – 2nd/8th July 2017

2nd July  – British Masters 3000m Running in the area match the same race I ran last year and won comfortably despite having come straight from packing up my race. Another hot one and didn’t feel alert and having got sunburnt knew I may struggle.  A few stronger girls this time and had to settle […]
