SEAA & National Relays – Saturday 14th April 2018

A SOLID PERFORMANCE FROM THE BELLES AT SUTTON PARK An account from our team manager from the relays on what I would describe heavy legs, I set the Belles off on the first, one of the two tough long stages of 5.38 miles on this year’s National road relay.  Not feeling 100% and although battled courageously […]

Anglo Celtic Plate 100k – A Win & A Course Record, 31 March 2018

The  A race, I had been training for since last year failing to finish at Winschouten 100k in September 2017.  This was the second selection for the same distance and this time I was desperate to finish and prove my fitness.

Slightly nervous on an off-road race, still nursing my temperature and feeling exhausted I did also go and get some blood tests to ensure I wasn’t having still glandular issues.  I was pleased to confirm that the blood count looked good and the temperature likely to be triggered from exhaustion/anxiety and stress.  Almost relief to get clear […]

SEAA Cross Country, Brighton – Saturday 27th January 2018

Gloucester 50k – Sunday 14th January 2018

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 […]
