The troops of the BHR blue army were scattered this week as they were presented with a wide variety of available challenges.

On Thursday evening the inaugural “Beat The Tide 10k” attracted the beach lovers from the club to Worthing for a jog across the sand and shingle with a healthy helping of waterlogged shoes. Paul Sargent clocked another impressive race time of 39:06 as he finished 3rd overall.

He was followed by Mark Nicholls (41:27), James Sorbie (42:41), Glyn Merritt (43:40), Jay Wadey (49:53), Neil Dawson (51:16), Steve Roberts (51:21), John Palmer (52:21), Catherine Kempton (53:02), Marie Carey (57:48), Nick Dawson (59:50), John Carey (1:00:07), Tracy Brownings (1:00:16), Karen Harvey (1:00:19), Claire Giles (1:05:45), Helen Pratt (1:07:44), Caz Wadey (1:10:28) and Philippe Ecaille (1:10:30).

On Saturday Neil Dawson, Nick Dawson and Philippe Ecaille ventured to Dorset for the “Bad Cow Marathon” having fully recovered from Thursday night’s exploits. Results aren’t available at this time, but all three completed the event with smiles on their faces and some nice chunky bling for their efforts!

On Sunday Mark Nicholls finished 14th at the Henfield Half Marathon with a fantastic time of 1:29:33. Joining him were: Dan Foord (1:42:07), Stuart Anderson (1:51:19), Debbie Saint (1:57:42), Sheryl Caldecourt (2:02:27) and Claire Giles (2:23:11).
