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.

Sussex 10k road race at Chichester

The provisional Sussex 10k Road Race Championship results have been published revealing Ross Skelton (Brighton Phoenix) and Rebecca Moore (Southampton) as the champions.

Run in conjunction with the Chichester 10k road race at Goodwood, Skelton beat his club mate Max Dumbrell by nearly one minute as he placed fourth overall in 30:51 to Dumbrell’s fifth place in 31:47.  Local runner, Harry Leleu, was sixth overall in 32:03 to take the County bronze.

Richard Allen from Aldershot was the overall winner in 29:45 just two seconds clear of Andy Maud (Highgate).

Fast time in Brighton 10k

It was a good day for Sussex athletes in the annual Brighton 10k road race which was held on Sunday after missing last year’s event because of severe weather conditions.

This year the conditions were good and Jonathan Hopkins from Swansea stormed away from a field that by and large lacked the quality that the race usually attracts.

He finished more than one minute ahead of his nearest rival, Crawley’s James Westlake, in a fast time of 29:40s.
