Below is a list of confirmed races that we will participate in during 2017, this will also show race history and results as the year progressed.

We will try and take part in a parkrun every week. We are hoping to do lots of different parkruns in the local area but will mostly be running Eastbourne parkrun. We know parkrun is a run not a race but we really want to try and do 60 races in the year as this is the total dose of treatment I had for the Ledderhose. 

You can tell how new we are to running as the 2016 Brighton Half Marathon was our first time running that distance. I ran it in 1:35:50 and Katie in 2:03, in 2017 Katie will be aiming for sub 2 hours having hopefully already achieved that over the winter and I am currently planning to run it at marathon pace which should roughly mean matching the 2016 time. 

Brighton Marathon: 09-04-2017
The big one, our first marathon and certainly the only one in 2017. At the moment I am hoping to run sub 3:30 and the closer to sub 3:15 the better and Katie is aiming for sub 4:30.

RiverStone Handicap Runs - 

Possible races (in date order):
05-02-2017 - Chichester 10k - Could be a nice fast tune up race before the Brighton Half

Burgess Hill 10k - May 1st 2017

Eton 10k race - Katie and her family helped to raise the money for me to get radiotherapy at one of these runs in 2012 so it would be nice to do one of these. 
22-01-2017 / 15-04-2017 The latter one would need to be slow being the week after the marathon!!!
