The Lepe Loop - Saturday 7 July 2018

Simon Ibbotson reports, "A few Hardley Runners took on the new Honeypot Lepe Loop 10K on Saturday 7th July.  It was great to see a new race being organised so close by and so had to give it a go.  With a start time of 8:45am it was an early one but due to the sunny weather it meant that it was much cooler than it would have been later on.  Having never done the Lepe loop circuit before I wasn't entirely sure what the terrain would be like and it turned out to be a mixture of beach, tarmac, woodland paths, open fields and gravel; about as mixed as you can get.  The beach section at the end made for an interesting run as you needed to make progress over the stones and sand whilst jumping groynes and dodging beach goers; all good fun!

It was nice to know that the race was in aid of the Honeypot children's charity and they even had someone dressed up in their mascot bee costume at the finish (must have been very warm in there!).  To top it off we were presented with a really nice medal and could get both a free cake and a bacon butty!  Highly recommend it for next year."

Some of Simon's pictures are below.  And here's a link to a Facebook album with over 100 more.
