Fast time in Brighton 10k

It was a good day for Sussex athletes in the annual Brighton 10k road race which was held on Sunday after missing last year’s event because of severe weather conditions.

This year the conditions were good and Jonathan Hopkins from Swansea stormed away from a field that by and large lacked the quality that the race usually attracts.

He finished more than one minute ahead of his nearest rival, Crawley’s James Westlake, in a fast time of 29:40s.

Brighton 10k

The Brighton & Hove 10k road race on Sunday dominates this weekend’s racing with many of the top Sussex runners doing battle over this flat fast course.

Last year the race had to be cancelled, on the advice of the police, because of storm conditions and exceptionally high winds that were blowing the cones into the road.

Race organiser Keith Donno is hoping for better conditions this coming Sunday.

Hawkes and Anning set to Sparkle this weekend

On Friday evening Worthing thrower Ben Hawkes will be at the Grand Hotel in Brighton as one of the finalists in the Sussex Sports Awards ‘Young Sports Personality’ of the Year category.  Hawkes had a fantastic season in which he broke county Under 17 records in the Hammer, Discus and Shot. In his speciality – the Hammer – he won the English Schools, the Schools International and Schools Games and ended the year unbeaten as UK number one.
