Our first ever entry:      Darren Hansford

In June 2015 my daughter had her 7th birthday party.  As usual the kids had some relay races followed by the dads.  A cheer went up when I lined up with the dads. Embarrassingly I took part. I knew I was too unfit to do a kiddie relay race because of my inactivity since leaving a very active army life behind in 1997.

I decided there and then a change is needed. Joe told me about the Hilly and said just to do as much or little as I could fit in initially.  In September 2015 I ran my first ever timed race in Hambledon and finished in a respectable 57 minutes!  I have completed another 4 timed races since then with a sub 50 min 10km at Boscombe. I have entered another 4 races for the rest of 2016 and loving it. I am 47 years of age and my life has restarted. I still ache a bit but now it is for the right reasons!

Cannot wait for my daughters 8th birthday in June. I'll be standing taller and will definitely fit through the lifebuoy this year!
