Nerurkar Selected for England Schools Team - World Champs - Half-marathon

Almi Nerurkar has been selected to represent England at the ISF World Schools Cross-Country Championships in Paris, France next month.

Following the National Championships last Saturday the English Schools’ Athletic Association has selected a very strong team for this prestigious U18 competition. They hope to build on the incredibly strong performances at last summer's ISF World Schools' Track and Field Championships held in Nancy, France, where BHASVIC's Amber Anning was a member of the victorious girls' team. 

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.

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.
