Pre-paid parking SOLD OUT at The Amex for the Southern Cross Country Champs

The South of England officials breathed a sigh of relief when the Albion were drawn away in this weekend’s F.A cup,  as it meant there would be parking at the Amex stadium for the SEAA Cross Country championships after all.

It was a risky decision, made in December, to bring the championships to Stanmer Park again this coming Saturday as there was a chance that there would not be any parking locally. Entries for the championships, one of the most important races of the winter,  closed in December, before the F.A. cup venue was confirmed.

A Muddy Good Afternoon

“Mud Glorious Mud” welcomed the 500 runners who reported to Bexhill Down on Saturday for the first major cross-country event of the New Year, the Sussex Cross-country championships. Mud is a great leveller in cross-county events and although we did not see any surprise winners there were some unusual minor placings. The absence of several contenders through illness was obvious in several events. Both senior winners were heavily tipped before their races but they both produced intriguing battles.

Bright10 win for Evans - The Weekend.

Lewes Athletic Club’s Tom Evans, along with several other leading Sussex runners, gave the Sussex Cross-country League event at Goodwood a miss last weekend to concentrate on the “Bright10” road race at Brighton on Sunday and he did it to good effect.

Evans, who is primarily a triathlete and James Westlake (Crawley) who is a footballer fought through the early stages of the race but Evans moved clear for a handsome victory in 51:46 to the Crawley runner’s 52:33 with David Wilson (Thames Hare and Hounds) in third place in 52:30.
