Tremendous results for Sussex at Loughborough

A tremendous day for Sussex, at the Inter-counties cross country championships at Prestwold Hall in Loughborough, on Saturday saw one gold medal for Bethany Cook and four Top Ten team places.

Both the U17 teams finished a splendid fifth place, the senior men a remarkable seventh and the U15 girls filled ninth place  - all significant team performances.

The course was really tough with mud that Dave Leach, the men’s team manager, described as, “the worst I’ve seen this century”.

Final League placings

Brighton & Hove’s Jamie Knapp and Nicholas Hollan-Ellidge (Crawley) confirmed their Sussex League titles at Stanmer Park on Saturday, but neither really needed to run.

Knapp choose to sit it out having won the first three senior races but Hollan-Ellidge lined up with the rest of the U13 runners and duly won his fourth race of the season to score 3 points to Henry Yelling’s (Brighton & Hove) 7 points while Max Dumbrell (Brighton Phoenix) scored 9 points to Knapp’s 3 points.

Parking at The Amex for final Sussex League races

There will not be any parking at Stanmer Park for the final races in the Sussex Cross-country League on Saturday, but parking will be available at the Amex Stadium.

Runners and spectators etc should stay on the A27 and take the Falmer exit to the Amex car park.

There have been record fields in the League matches this year, but the final match of the season usually produces the smallest fields of the season as some athletes have already completed their three races and two are already assured of individual titles.
