Paddock Wood Half Marathon and the Sussex Marathon Galleries are now live and online here:
Paddock Wood Half
Links to race websites and their results can be found on the linked pages above.
The Bournemouth Bay Runs - Half marathon and 10k, 5k and Fun run are now being put through final processing and being uploaded. Please bear with us whilst we gesticulate wildly at the speed up uploads on BT broadband. I may drive 10 miles to find some VIrgin Fibre Broadband at a friends shop in Hove... that might save 15hrs or so...
A few quick shots from Paddock Wood and the Sussex Marathon
|Teamwork in the first few miles to keep warm|
|Testing the course - James in 1:15:22 came 19th on his own race and a PB. The Race organiser knew the route|
|Carole looked quite pleased to have finished the race - brilliant job|
|Man Hugs all round at the end for a job well done|
|The start out of the community centre, Mark lead for a moment, and then off down hill for the first of the laps|
|perfect weather for a run in the Sussex countryside|
|Perfect form for an airplane|
|Over 200ft of climbs on one of the toughest courses you can try|
|Mentally the marathon is a challenge, let alone physically|
|Brilliant marshalling kept everyone going|
|Well set out aid stations with gels and water made it reassuring for everyone taking part|
Until next time - hopefully with Bournemouth online...
p.s. a message from Joe Henstridge - which after a sunny day like the ones we had on Sunday - are very relevant - don't get caught out in the sun (I know one of our photographers did), and always carry a sun-stick in the man bag.
- Hi Guys,
I'm helping to organise http://bit.ly/something-silly-in-june-2012 - a fundraising event raising money and awareness for Melanoma and Factor50.org
There's 10 of us, including a melanoma patient running the 100 miles of the South Downs Way over 3 days in June.
We'll be finishing up in Eastbourne on the 21st of June and all support is welcomed. If anyone can help or you want to learn more please get in touch or go to the website and donate !
