I think there has been much talk about this amazingly fun race which is my favourite race of all for so many year is the 20th Anniversary, so just to sort out the men from the boys and ladies of course...they are going back to their roots of the original route which is 34 miles....this is so exciting !

Heather Khoshnevis                     5.04      1st F55



This was a Club Champ and Dorset League Race and our ladies scored very very well indeed... not only did we have 4 ladies in the top 8, we were 1st team on the day and 1st team for the league which Im sure will keep us in 1st place overall for the time being (atleast until BAC ladies start attacking again!)

I am sure many of you took part in this event, but the results are not easy to find so I would be relying on you to email if you want a mention here........  Well done to Sally Deamer who finished in is a very tough course but well rewarded with a very special I am told!!



A massive 27 Littledown ladies (who obviously had nothing better to do on a Friday night!!....haha) took part in this event, which was indeed a Club Champ and DRRL race.  A brilliant turnout with brilliant results.  As far as I have been able to work out, I think we have come 2nd ladies team for the Dorset League, which still leaves us in 1st place overall at the moment.  Stand up and be very proud of yourselves, each and everyone one of you, this is a truly remarkable achievement with such strong competetion from other local running clubs.

June was an extremely and absolutely fabulous July is waiting in the wings....but as I am typing has already begun with the "Loopy Littledown Marathon"  but you will have to wait for this report!  The Portland 10 has also already taken place which was also a Club Champ now it is time to get your entries in the for the next one which is the Tarrant Valley 10k.  Entries are available by post or online but it does not mention "on the day", so do not leave it to chance!!


Well done to all ladies that "did in June"!)

Ladies April 2017 Race Report

I must start this report with apologies if you do not get your rightful mention if you have done a race and want to share it with us....there are 3 reasons for this.....1.  Not all results have a seperate list or even show you as being a club member, so therefore I have to scroll through 100's...sometimes 1000's of names to find you and errors can occur...and it does take considerable time that I do not always have!   2. I was not at the race you attended so how would i know you were there!   3.  You did not let me know!  .... simples!!  ..... This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. is where you can let me know.  Below are the Bay run results and this is a typical example of absence of our club against our name, also Brighton I am sorry in advance! 
Christina Varley 1:45:14 PB
This needs no explanation, you all know what and where  and how lovely it is......
Hannah Collier                                1.37.57     6th lady

Run, walk or crawl a marathon a day for 3 days along the stunning Jurassic Coastal Path.  3 marathons in 3 days is a format that is challenging but achievable by most. Runners, joggers, and walkers all take on the challenge and start at different times each day. The routes each day are marked on issued maps but don't require much navigation to follow as the coastal footpath is well marked along the ways.....did anyone take the plunge???
DAY ONE -  28ish miles!
Caroline Horder        6.28
Julie White               6.15
DAY TWO - another 28ish miles!
Caroline Horder        6.48
Excellent endurance is all I can say...and very well done to you both!
Jenny Beckett             3.43.36
Well done Jenny on this amazing PB and your guaranteed GFA ENTRY into London 2018
Sally Deamer                        3.48.50  A PB!  Excellent...and also a guarenteed GFA London 2018 entry!  LD ladies are taking over!!

Jacqueline Jenkins                 4.11.28 1st F70

Caroline Horder                1.15.03     1st F65
Heather Khoshnevis         1.16.39      2nd F55
Words from Susie Elliott....the time is irrelevant......she just wanted to finish on an extremely hot day amongst 57,000 runners pushing...shoving and throwing banana skins all over the road for everyone to slip on....Mmmm....There must be something nice....but it never was on my "too do" list!  Well done Susie for surviving the battle!
This month is getting busier and busier.....there were 25 orange ladies here, was this because of Club Champ points or a mini egg at the finish!!
We had approximately 50 runners there and this did not go unnoticed and was remarked upon by the organisers and obviously the Bournemouth Echo was impressed too, and we had our famous family portrait displayed therein!!   There is every possibility that some of you  may have been missed off as some where not listed as Littledown Harriers and others may have run in someone else's number, or my eyes just did'nt see your I apologise....let me know if you are missing and we can add you in

This was a Club Champ race but Im guessing the 20 miles or 3 laps just did  not appeal to many of you...but those that did....well done and you gained some great points that others missed out on! :)

Heather Khoshnevis                      2.37.52    1st F55

Jenny Beckett                                 2.52.59

Tracy Ashley                                   3.09.50

Wendy Tobin                                  3.38.22



The 2nd time I have run this one so I must have liked it the first time!  It is 10 x 2.6mile laps with a tuck shop TEN TIMES!!!  How great is that.  A small and very friendly event - you really do  not notice the same scenery 10 times!! :)

Heather Khoshnevis                     3.41.14



Good old Whitestar Running.....most of you know what this means....Mud...hills....hardcore endurance....and lots of fun and goodies enroute...defintely not to be taken lightly though!!  Our Chairman, Greg Hawkins, chose this to complete his 100th Marathon, and with Becky Hawkins by his side, he completed this admirably and so did Becky, raking in a PB I believe!  Loads of you chose to do the varying distances over the weekend, and the 10 miler proved to be the favourite, probably due to the fact that it was part of the Imperial 10 series, along side Lytchett 10 and Bournemouth 10.  A HUGE CONGRATULATIONS TO JACKIE JENKINS FOR WINNING HER AGE CATAGORY FOR THIS EVENT.  Well done Jackie :)

Well done to everyone for great running in March.

That now brings us to the end of yet another month and April is now ready to "spring" into action!  Plenty of races ahead and quite a few of you are attempting distances that are new you.  Please let me know if you are "branching out" or if you get a PB or PW (it happens to us all)  and you will be given a special mention :-).

The next Club Championship race is the Rotary Quarter on Easter Saturday, 15th April.  I believe there will be entries on the day unless it becomes full dont delay...enter today!   The next DRRL race is of course the lovely North Dorset Village Marathon  on the 30th April.  I hope to see a few of you there.  CC and DRRL races 2017

Good luck and good running to you all for April and I look forward to reporting on your achievements soon.

Ladies November 2016 Race Report

A20 Paths and Downs Marathon - Kent - 13th Nov


With views up to 25 miles from atop The Downs, the scenery can be awesome. You run along tarmac pathways along the A20 and quiet country lanes on The Downs. All turns are marshalled and signed, water/feed stations at approx 3 mile intervals...this sounds like  a lovely "away one"....we had one lady attend this, and a very speedy one too.....

272   Susie Elliott                                                   5.12.59



Some Littledown Harriers really do like to spread the "Orange Glow" -

Tracey Lander                                                        3.59.59  well done Tracey - a perfect sub 4 !



The event was held in a small private nature reserve which forms part of the Dorney Lake estate.  Dorney Lake was the venue for the 2012 Olympic rowing events which saw Team GB win 4 gold medals in the rowing events as well as a gold in the canoe sprint. 

This was a "free trial" event for a new running event company called Running Miles and I can honestly say it was first class and the tuck shop fuel station was the best ever, along with our chocolate filled goody bags and free tea, coffee and biscuits on arrival!  What is there not to like! They have now organised their next events which take place on 9th March and 15th June so if you liked the sound of this one, then come and join me!

Heather Khoshnevis          3.48.46

Susie Elliott                       4.59.56

70     Heather Khoshnevis         3.54.39    1st F55      (240 F)



This has been absent from the marathon calender since 1993 and has now returned to test your strength and character apparently!  A very pretty 2 lap course (with the choice of a half marathon) taking you through pretty Kent villages and country lanes....BUT be warned...there is 2500ft of climbing involved!! 

19    Heather Khoshnevis         3.53.52     2nd Female and 1st F55      (80 finishers)



This was the first time for this marathon, with a 5k, 10k, and half option, and it does sound rather nice!

The route is a picturesque journey through some of the most spectacular Dorset countryside, classed as the gateway to the Jurassic coast it will follow quite roads taking you from Burton Bradstock to Litton Cheney, a picturesque village in the heart of Dorset, before you head back towards Burton Bradstock and the spectacular views back towards the Jurassic coast, all routes will return through Burton Bradstock itself, time if you have the energy to take in the Beauty around you,The marathon will follow two laps of the Half marathon course.

4     Caroline Horder             3.47.55      1st Female

10   Julie White                     4.01.58                        ( 32 finishers)



This has always been a popular one with the club in past years, and I understand some members even made the Newspaper headlines at the Airport!!!!!

2417     Joanna Tomsett        3.30.38   (those seconds again!!)



Kathy and Tracey gave this one a go, and it sounded great.  There was also the option of a half marathon and a 10k.

216      Kathy Fooks         3.47.41    and she brought home the 1st F55 trophy all the way from Spain!  Well done.

336     Tracey Lander      4.04.53        (550 Finishers)



Nanuka Devi-key                            1.28.30

503    Melanie Robers                               2.24.30


WOW!  That was epic!  Not sure if it was the call of the hills and mud that attracted you all to this one, or just your absolute dedication to getting those last few remaining Club Championship points!  Either way,  Well done for a fine orange turnout.


So thats beautiful Autumnal October done and now as we head towards 2 or 3 months of fresh winter....we have 2 more very important races to run! They are both the remaining chances to score for both the Club Champ and DRRL.  These are the Wimborne 10 (cakes cakes cakes!) and Boscombe 10k.  Unfortunately if you have not already entered, they are both full!  If you are lucky enough to be offered a number from some poor soul who cannot run on the day,  please can you make sure that you contact the Race Organiser to change the details.  This is very very important for a number of reasons!


Well done ladies for an amazing month of running,  I now hope to be coming to the club on Tuesday nights so those of you who I have not met in person (I see so many new names popping out of race results) I shall look forward to meeting you.


Happy  Running

The Purbeck Marathon takes place in Swanage, Purbeck and the Jurassic Coast which has spectacular history, landscapes and views. The course with around 3000 feet of climbs provides a predominately off-road Marathon that is both challenging and rewarding.

Tracy Lander was our only lady there this year but i'm sure many more of you will be there next year as i know you all like a challenge!!

46th      Tracey Lander             4.27.55
