Harvey Curtis Result - - Crowborough

After high winds on November 20 led to the cancellation of the Brighton 10k, the 2016 Harvey Curtis Sussex Road Race Challenge (SRRC) was forced to conclude after five races rather than the intended six.

This meant Kevin Rojas (Brighton & Hove AC) was crowned champion for the third year in a row with a total of six points from his three qualifying races, finishing three points ahead of second-placed Paul Navesey (Crawley AC). The ever-improving James Westlake (Crawley AC) finished third on 13 points.

Rojas takes Bronze at British Championship

Kevin Rojas (Brighton & Hove) had an excellent race to take the bronze medal in the British Half-marathon championship which was incorporated into the Ikano Robin Hood Half-marathon race at Nottingham last weekend.

Rojas, who is off to Canada later this month to compete for Great Britain in the Toronto Marathon, actually placed fourth in the race behind the Kenyan Barnaba Kipkoech, who clocked 65:55s Nicholas Torry (Serpentine) 66:26s and local runner Alistair Watson in a personal best of 66:38s.

Bronze for Hopkins at Exeter - - Hove Prom

An unhappy weekend for the Sussex Schools Combined eventers at Exeter meant that the Sussex athletes did not produce their normally fine results in the final of the English Schools Combined Events Championships at Exeter.

There was however a fine bronze medal in the Intermediate (U17) 5km walking championship which was held in conjunction.

Here Oliver Hopkins from Chailey continued to show improved form and again achieved a personal best to finish in third place in 27:28.65s.
