Numbers On The Up For The Sussex 10K Road Champs

More road runners have entered this year's Sussex county 10K road Championships, being held as part of the Chichester 10K on Sunday.

Over 350, an increase of 70 runners, have signed up for the county event. There are due to be 20 men’s teams and 15 women’s teams represented.  

Fastest for nearly 50 years

Amber Anning ran the fastest ever 400 metres by a Sussex woman when winning her seeded race indoors in Vienna on Saturday.

Her time of 53.35s was well over a second faster than the second girl and was the fastest by any British U20 woman this century. In fact not since Marilyn Neufville clocked 53.01s indoors in 1979 has anyone run faster.

All the races were seeded at this large Viennese meeting and the Sussex runner was actually seeded 14th but in her race she outstripped the opposition from the outside lane and lifted her seeding to sixth.

Bronze medal for Tarragano at Parliament Hill

Brilliant running from Brighton & Hove’s Tomer Tarragano, Brighton Phoenix’s Almi Nerurkar and Nicole Taylor (Tonbridge) highlighted the racing at the South of England Cross-country championships at Parliament Hill on Saturday as far as Sussex were concerned.

Indoor Internationals and S o E Cross Country

Three Sussex athletes are lined up for Indoor International competition for England over the next ten days.

On Saturday Brighton & Hove’s, Amber Anning, following her successful defence of her South of England U20 200m title, will be racing over 400m in Vienna and the following weekend she will be racing, again over 400 metres, in Iceland.

On Sunday George Mills (Brighton Phoenix), another South of England winner at Lee Valley at the weekend, will be racing over 800 metres in Bratislava alongside Saltdean’s, 60m hurdler, Cameron Fillery.

Three Golds for Sussex at Lee Valley

There were a clutch of medals for Sussex athletes at the South of England Indoor championships at Lee Valley over the weekend with a clean sweep in the senior 800 metres for Brighton Phoenix athletes.

In fact Phoenix had four athletes through to the final of the senior 800m with George Mills, a Brighton University Student who is still only 19, winning the title in 1:50.72s ahead of Spencer Thomas 1:51.28s and Archie Davies 1:52.14 with Finley Bigg filling fifth place in 1:55.45s.
