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.

Cross-country Relays

Provisional results from the Cross-country relays are now posted but fastest laps times are only available for the U15 and U13 age groups. The rest of the results may not be available until mid-week after Clubs have checked their names.

The senior team results have already been changed as Brighton & Hove had a “Non Sussex” runner in their team so Lewes step up to be champions ahead of Chichester and Brighton Phoenix.

The M40 title was won by Haywards Heath, M50 by Brighton & Hove and M60 by Crawley.
