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.

Phoenix 16th Brighton & Hove 39th at Sutton Park

Brighton Phoenix and Brighton & Hove Athletic Club flew the Sussex flag at the National six-stage Road Relay championships at Sutton Park on Saturday with both clubs fielding weakened teams.

This did not prevent the Phoenix squad finishing in a highly creditable 16th place in 1hr 50m 56s.
