New Year New Website

Welcome to the new website for Sussex Athletics. The aim is to make it a ‘one stop shop’ for anything to do with Athletics in the county. Our intention is that anyone from the absolute beginner to the experienced athlete will use the web site to find out about what is happening across the athletic landscape and see how they can get involved. The new site is also more interactive and is easily accessible on smart phones and tablets.

Sussex had probably their best ever Inter-Counties result at Bedford over the weekend despite the absence of many of their top athletes.

Scoring 56.5 points, Sussex finished behind the winners Yorkshire, who scored 73.5 points and second placed Essex who totalled 64 points.
