GB 100k World Championships Croatia  -8th September 2018

“Well what can I say, it was a pleasure to be reigned the British 100k champion at the end of March this year in a new PB of 7.53.57 and to top it off also recovered from a disastrous racing year in 2017 due to Glandular Fever and being picked up by Norman Wilson who […]

MotaVation Race 5, Oxford City – 30 August 2018

What could go wrong, another speed session off a positive race win on Sunday at Headington? Mainly my head, it wasn’t in race mode but I had committed to do the race. The weather also seemed to improve dramatically which meant a sticky evening of racing, on a positive I told myself its a warm-up, just […]

Headington 5 Mile -26th August

Ouch, another punchy race was my thought of getting ready to leave to my now ” local” race.  I love racing in Oxford as they are well organized and have good competition at the top end.  I wasn’t sure how the race was going to pan out, to be honest, the last few days at work […]

Energia 24hr Race – 23/24th June

Utter maddness ! Manic what can I say,  I took the Friday off to ensure I was prepared and also had reflexology, which later could have also contributed to my foot blisters. Anyway travelling with the crew was Jo and I from Heathrow and Norman and Anne from Birmingham.  All of which were going to be […]

Chiltern Chase 15k – 3rd June 2018

Another hot one ! This wasn’t a race I felt particularly felt very well prior to the start.  Probably an accumulation of a busy work week having done a short day visit to Sweden and also the heat picking up.  Regardless the distance suited me being a little further than the norm and meant I […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
