April has been busy already for members of Bognor’s Tone Zone Runners.

In Jersey Tony Hancock ran in the Freedom Tree Spring 10k. With a heavy headwind for the last 5k, Hancock finished in 47 minutes – second in his age category.

Just north of Wickham, Hampshire, were Debs Pacey with dog Luna and Lisa Robinson with her dog Logan. This was the Hundred Acre Wood 10k, a reasonably hilly and off-road course, with both ladies and pooches finishing on the hour.

In Lancing a big group from the club ran the hilly Lancing 10k. Grahame Hurren was first home for the club and finished in 51:25, Carl Bryant hot on his heels finishing in 52 minutes. Mark Farndell and Andy Miles snuck under the 55min barrier.

Gary Gaskin and Andrew Medlock finished in 56:09 and 59:47. Zoe Hemes, Lauren Farndell, Rachel George and Rebecca Holden all ran strong races to finish the challenging course in less than 1.05.
