Tone Zone Runners were well-represented at the Cowdray Estate’s 10k at Midhurst.

One enjoyed the muddy course so much he won it – Simon Gill, who completed the course in 37:39, despite a little fall during the race.

Duncan Stephenson-Gill had shaken off his marathon legs to finish the tough course in under 45 minutes. The ever-improving Jessica Thomson was the first lady home for the club, finishing just ahead of fellow runner Tony Holcombe, both running under 50 minutes.

Sean O’Donnell recorded an impressive 56:39. Running in the event’s canicross 10k were Debs Pacey and Lisa Robinson, who finished in 1:06, a very impressive performance by all.

Tone Zoners were also at the Worthing 10k with another big turnout. The weather was perfect for a day at the beach, but hot for a race.

A total of 29 runners took the short trip along the coast. The first three home for the club were Gill, who recovered well from his midweek triumph, Peter Lee, carrying on from his fine form and crossing the line in 37:10 and Sean Power, the youngster who never stops improving and who finished in 40:55.
