Lee-ding the way! Tone Zone’s Peter in his stride to record fine time at Chichester’s Priory 10k event

Bognor Regis Tone Zone runner Peter Lee was the first from the club to finish the Chichester Priory 10k on Sunday with a time of 37 minutes 17 seconds.

And Kari Mack was the next member home, finishing in a time of 39 minutes, 54 seconds.

Tone Zone’s Glenn Penfold says the day got off to a good start at Goodwood Motor Circuit with no repeat of the parking problems that delayed the start of the event last year.

He added: “Among the 1,500-strong field and despite near freezing temperatures were 35 runners for Bognor Regis Tone Zone.

Keith Hardwell wore his lucky gloves

“Seven club runners ran their personal best times for this distance at the race. Neil Pacey took over a minute from his to finish in 51.20.”

Despite this, Pacey was still disappointed: He said: “Unfortunately my left calf tightened and cramped at seven km, I would have not only broken my personal goal of a sub-50 but finished around 48 minutes if it hadn’t.

“I’m pleased with the run but will now need to find another 10k race to try again. On the plus side the race was much better organised for parking this year and even with my cramp it was a really enjoyable race.”

An overjoyed Stan Mack, who is in the middle of training for his first marathon in April, managed to slice three minutes from his best to finish in 45.21; Gareth Stemp beat his by two minutes finishing in 47.42. The others were Karen Vilday 52.36, Martin Playford 52.55, David Sinclair 54.03 and Jo York 1.08.35.

Along the coast at an equally cold Portsmouth was the Coastal Half Marathon. Derek Natoli was the first Tone Zoner home in 2.01 closely followed a minute later by Jackie Williamson, who said of the race: “Mud, boggy grass, shingle, freezing wind, it’s the Portsmouth Coastal half…such fun”.

Ben Leney, 2.05, and Sam Yates, 2.19, both ran their best times. Sam took an amazing seven minutes from her best time and she said\; “I’m so happy with my personal best or seven minutes today at the Portsmouth Coastal Half Marathon, it’s only taken me eight years!”
