A HECTIC weekend of races saw the Great South Run take up much of the focus for Bognor’s Tone Zone Runners.

A total of 24 runners from the club competed at the Portsmouth event – among many others from the Observer area – with many personal bests achieved.

Known as the second toughest marathon in the country because of killer ascents, ideal conditions helped the runners with Gallagher coming first for the club in 4.33.35.

Sy Daymond came in for the club in 1hr 08min 36sec.

Three members of the club did the Bristol-to-Bath marathon with Amber Woollven coming in at 4.37.11, Karen Blackman in 4.53.26 and Debbie Pacey in 4.53.25.

Slightly farther afield, Judith Bazeley and Paul Westwood ran the Leicester Half Marathon. Paul Coe and Ian Culton ran the Back to the Future Marathon held on Back to the Future day.

Three days later, Coe ran the Beachy Head marathon accompanied by Chris Gallagher, Colin Hiscock, Gary Pidgeon, Ian Bayley and Joan Woolley.

Known as the second toughest marathon in the country because of killer ascents, ideal conditions helped the runners with Gallagher coming first for the club in 4.33.35.
