A Hot bronze for Evans and Sussex girls Stateside University Challenge

Sussex Cross-country silver medallist Tom Evans of Lewes AC has become the first European runner to get in the top three in the notorious Marathon Sables in Morocco.

This is a killer of event as it comprises 5 x marathons and one double marathon, a total of 250km in temperatures of up to 50 degrees in successive day.

Evans became the first British runner to achieve a podium place in the 32-year history of the race.

Full details and confirmation of places are still awaited though the leading positions have been confirmed.

McNally flies at Goodwood

It was first blood to Finn McNally over the new course at the Chichester 10km road race on Sunday.

After many years, as the Chichester Priory 10k, in the historic town the race had been switched to a new course at Goodwood Aerodrome and there did not seem to be as many West of England and non-Sussex athletes in action at the event this year.

However the Brighton Phoenix athlete took care of those that were on show and chalked up an impressive seventy metre victory over Southampton’s Alex Wall-Clark in 30:46 to 31:01.
