The weekend

Competition this weekend is mainly split between Popham Airfield, near Basingstoke in Hampshire, Goodwood and Reykjavik in Iceland so it will be cold where ever you are.

The South East Schools Inter-counties Cross country match will be held at Popham and Sussex will be fielding teams in each of the six races and many of the runners will be striving to catch the selector’s eyes for the teams for the English Schools championships at Leeds in March.

Inter Counties at Brighton & Hove 10k

There will be an extra element to this weekend’s Brighton & Hove City 10km Road race from and to the Madeira Drive at Brighton.

Organised by the Brighton & Hove Athletic Club this is usually one of the top 10ks held in Sussex during the year and it is essentially a competitive race rather than the usual Charity or Commercial runs. A talented field of 2,500 runners has been received and forecast conditions are good albeit a light NE wind over the second half of the race.

Seven medals for Sussex at Bedford

Cameron Fillery stormed to a brilliant victory in the England U23 championships at Bedford at the weekend.

Fillery, who is the reigning English Schools High hurdles champion and the Sussex U20 record holder is now at Loughborough University and continuing to make great progress. At Bedford he swept to an impressive victory in the 110m hurdles in 14.12s to become one of seven medal winners for Sussex over the weekend.
