The Battles of Bexhill

The second of this season’s Sussex Cross-county League matches on Saturday produced more big fields and some good battles at Bexhill Down.

Although mainly damp for most of the afternoon underfoot conditions were good for the notoriously muddy course and apart from the wooded stretches the going was firm.

Four of the seven races winners from Goodwood, last month, were again victorious but it was not all plain sailing.

Hastings and Lewes create suprise wins at Bexhill Down

It was the Hastings and Lewes Athletic Clubs who created the major surprises at the Sussex Cross Country championships at Bexhill Down on Saturday.

Conditions for racing were excellent with little sign of the heavy mud that usually greets the runners when they arrived at the Bexhill course and I cannot remember such a mild course at this time of the year in the sixty years that I have been watching cross-country racing at Bexhill Down.
