Record Fields at Bexhill

Nearly six hundred runners contested the second of this season’s Sussex Cross-country League event at Bexhill Down on Saturday which is a record number for the Bexhill course for a League event.

Bodywork’s Daisy Burton, who is the reigning Sussex Schools Year Seven champion, tasted first blood of the afternoon when she won the U13 1.8-mile Girls race in 12:25s over a testing but mainly firm course. She finished eight seconds clear of Eleanor Strevens from Eastbourne with East Grinstead’s Gabrielle Holland in third place a further three seconds behind.

Fourth for Bethany and third for Year 8 Girls

Bethany Cook turned in another cracking run at the weekend when she donned the English schools vest for the International Schools Cross-country event at Margam Park, Port Talbot, Cardigan.

Probably the youngest runner in the junior (U15) girls race Cook was faced with her longest ever race at 4.2km and over the fast, tough course that included several sharp hills was not really suited to this light, long striding Moira House runner.
