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.

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.
