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 […]

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 […]

Bracknell Half Marathon, Bracknell – Sunday 7th May 2017

Well, that was a surprise in the bag to win Bracknell Half in my quickest time ever of 1.20.37 and 3rd overall win and also vet category.  Especially after fearing earlier in the week that my glandular fever was overcoming me again with a fever temperature.  However, having booked the race in a few months […]

Pednor 5 Miles, Chesham – 1st May 2017

I really wasn’t up for this race on the day having had a busy weekend and Saturday running also a long training run.  Regardless I needed to flyer the race with the local school event and felt this would be good training for me.  I went with my friend Trevor due to Alex feeling unwell.  […]

Maidenhead Easter 10 Miles, Maidenhead – Friday 14th April 2017

My first race in double digits this was going to be an interesting run.  I did feel some slight pressure especially with it being a local race and half hoped to dip under 60 minutes.  A full packed race at the startline and a lot of local recognised faces.  I had no other expectations apart […]

ERRA Womens 6 -Stage Relays, Sutton Park – Saturday 8th April 2017

I really wasn’t sure I was going to make this race based on how I had been feeling the last few months.  Knowing  that I didn’t feel marathon fit but wanted to see some improvement in my illness I decided to commit to the race and take a long leg.  The question was; ‘Should we […]
