Chichester 10k – 2 February 2020 (Sharon)

Well. It’s been a long time since I blogged and an even longer time since I blogged about running a race. There had been much discussion (and many attempts by David and Kirstee) to get me to enter the Chichester 10k – I was declining and David told me he’d filled in the form for me! Next thing I knew my running number came through the post – and my tummy instantly felt squiggly! Anyone that knows me and racing

Chichester 10k – 2 February 2020 (David)

A couple of weeks ago Sharon and I decided to enter the Chichester 10k. Well, I thought it would be a good idea and whilst filling in my entry form filled one in for Sharon as well. I ran the race last two years ago (I don’t think I blogged about it) when I did a number exchange with a friend who was injured. I had a good run, my time was 42 minutes exactly and my training log said

David Lloyd clubs Ultra Relay – 24 June 2019

I don’t run hills. I very very rarely run off-road (I ran on the beach once this year and that’s about it). So why not be part of a team of four running 10 miles each mostly off-road between Worthing and Brighton up to and along the South Downs Way? No was my answer. A few weeks later I heard you got a decent burger and chips at the finish. Sign me up! There were 30 mile or 40 mile

The Felpham Five – 5 June 2019

Beach running… my favourite. The last time I wrote about beach running here was in 2016 when I took part in a race in Littlehampton. I wrote at the time… Straight after the finish I saw Ben (the race director of the new Felpham Five event) and immediately offered myself as a volunteer for his race – anything not to have to run!! In 2016 I volunteered for the race. I don’t think it took place in 2017 and then….

Mid Summer 5 – 13 July 2016

After the ‘fun’ of a beach race last month this was time to get back on the road.  I’d heard good things about the Mid Summer 5 race – mainly because you get beer and a burger at the finish – this sounded just like my kind of race.  It’s an evening race which seems to be better suited to the beer/burger idea! The weather was great although there was a little bit of a breeze.  The race starts by

Littlehampton Beach Run – 8 June 2016

Hmn, this report is a little late so it’ll be brief!  With the announcement of a race called the ‘Felpham Five’ – which is a five mile beach run very close to our house I decided to try a beach race for myself.  I’d run a trial run of the five mile route for our local race and it was fun but I wanted to see what a beach run was like in a race-type scenario. So we headed all

Bognor Prom 10k – 15 May 2016

Back to my favourite running race in the calendar (this is my 11th time taking part).  I’ve been looking forward to this one for a few months now I as love running round the local streets with 1500 others and getting tons (and tons) of support from the amazing supporters out on the course.  It really is a great atmosphere to be a part of. Training this year has gone well and the past few weeks I’ve been able to get my

Three Forts Challenge – 1 May 2016

A year ago we had friends staying with us for the weekend and whilst I spent all day Sunday riding 100+ miles around the Isle of Wight in the rain at a cycling event our friends took part in the Three Forts Challenge – a rather hilly marathon (or half marathon) held near Worthing (about 15 miles from home). This year our friends were coming back to stay and I really didn’t fancy such a tough day in the saddle –
