Schools Update - Hastings Half

England Schools have updated last weekend’s Championships and have placed Tom James, who lost his chip in the mud, in a fine 26th place in the junior (U15) boys’ race, the first of the Sussex runners to finish.

This was a cracking run for the County Schools champion who lives over the border in Surrey but goes to school at Hazelwick.

This also lifts the junior team up from 18th team to a splendid 10th team spot. It does not however affect the boy’s Aggregate result and they remain in a splendid fourth place in Division One.

Great racing at Lancing

The slightly less cold temperatures for the Sussex Cross-country League races and the firm underfoot conditions made it almost perfect for an afternoon of Cross-country running at Lancing Manor on Saturday.

Total numbers were a little down on the Goodwood and Bexhill events particularly in the Young Athletes races but some may well be saving themselves for next weekend’s Inter-county races.

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.
