Reverse running at Christ's Hospital

There will be a new look to the Sussex Road Relay championships at Christ’s Hospital on Saturday as the race will be run clockwise, rather than the normal anti clockwise.

Athletes will be expected to keep to the right side of the course so they will actually run exactly the same distance so existing course records will probably stand. The changes have been implemented for Health and Safety reason as a short part of the course is run on the public highway.

The first race, the U13 Girls, will start off the racing at 11.00.

A set of medals at weekend's National Championships

Thanks very much to Martin Etchells who had a very busy weekend as Meeting Director for the Sussex Indoor championships and then produced reports while I was sans computer for several days.

There were few medals for Sussex athletes at the weekend’s National Indoor championships at Birmingham and the BUCS Championships at Sheffield.

Just one gold medal and that fell to County 400m hurdles record holder Bethany Close who forsook the hurdles and raced to a clear cut 200m victory in 24.35s.

Grice off to Australia - - Preview

Charlie Grice can been assured of a warm spring next year as he has been selected to compete in the 1500m at the Commonwealth Games on Australia’s Gold Coast next April.

Grice missed out on a place in the World Championships team earlier this year as he was beaten in the Trials by three Scotsmen but in Australia he will be sporting the England vest as he had done in the 2014 Games in Glasgow. In Glasgow Grice reached the final of the 1500m where he finished seventh but will, obviously, be aiming on improving on that placing and maybe getting amongst the medals.
