Sussex teams head to the Inter-counties

The leading Sussex cross-country athletes face their first major test of the season when they travel to Horspath, Oxford for the South of England Inter-county championships on Saturday.

All age groups will be involved except the Under 20 and Senior men but the South of England Masters Championships will also be held at Horspath and it is expected several Sussex Athletes will  be competing in those events.

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.

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.
