Sean of the tread! Tone Zone runner Power records personal best time in Chestnut Tree House 10k

Tone Zone runner Sean Power continued his stunning recent form to finish in a personal best time of 39 minutes and seven seconds in the Chestnut Tree House 10k in Littlehampton.

He was first in his under-20 category and 19th out of the 1,262 finishers. Jess Thomson and Amy O’Donnell both had equally great races finishing third in their categories.

Jess ran a personal best of 43.36 and Amy managed 56.05 in the under-20s. Also running their fastest times for a 10k were Stan Mack in 47.15, and Zoe Hemes (who only started running in January) in 1hr 1min.

Meanwhile, the New Forest Festival of Running, near Lyndhurst, saw eight club runners take part in either the half or full marathon. In the shorter discipline, Debbie Patching ran her best time of two hours flat. And Debi Haddleton completed her first half marathon in 2.23.

Paul Coe finished his 61st marathon with a time of 4.17 with Tony Holcombe, Charlotte Seaton and Jude Bazeley also completing the marathon distance.

It was a slightly different race at Stanmer Park near Brighton as it held the first running of the K9 Challenge where runners of two and four legs competed over a distance of 5k. Jack Penfold and labrador Milo finished in second place, It was almost a victory but Milo had to stop for a toilet break at the start of lap two!

A spokesman adds: “Taking things more sedately were Viv Baker, Karen Blackman and Lisa Robinson, who all looked very smart with their pooches in matching running vests. It was a fabulous event enjoyed by everyone and especially the dogs, who all received goodie bags and new dog tags.”
