Bogno’s Tone Zone runners put on a fantastic show of numbers for the annual Great South Run in Portsmouth,.

The flat ten-mile course is well-known for catching runners out with a fearsome headwind in the last couple of miles.

An attractive course, leading off through the Historic Dockyard, saw a total of 38 Tone Zone runners and an astounding 27 PBs – proving that training as part of a club really does help with speed.

First man home for Tone Zone Runners was Simon Gill in 1hr 00.46.

In other races, Jackie Williamson ran the New York marathon in 4.33.37 and Kari Mack, in almost unbeatable form this season, was first lady home in the Bonfire Burn 10k in 40.06.

Other marathon efforts came from Lukey Simmonds, Simon Bosworth and David Butler, who all ran the Beachy Head marathon over a hilly and challenging course.
