International Masters - Enfield Road Walk

Sussex athletes enjoyed success at the British and Irish Masters International Cross Country event at Singleton Park, Swansea on Saturday.

Sussex 10k road race at Chichester

The provisional Sussex 10k Road Race Championship results have been published revealing Ross Skelton (Brighton Phoenix) and Rebecca Moore (Southampton) as the champions.

Run in conjunction with the Chichester 10k road race at Goodwood, Skelton beat his club mate Max Dumbrell by nearly one minute as he placed fourth overall in 30:51 to Dumbrell’s fifth place in 31:47.  Local runner, Harry Leleu, was sixth overall in 32:03 to take the County bronze.

Richard Allen from Aldershot was the overall winner in 29:45 just two seconds clear of Andy Maud (Highgate).

Medals for the Masters

The more senior athletes from Sussex were also in fine form at Horspath on Saturday when they picked up several individual and team medals at the South of England Master’s cross-country championships.

Masters age groups are in five year bandings but team events for this event are in ten year bandings and in the 40-49 Women’s group there was a double victory for Arena 80 with Julie Briggs winning the overall race, despite being in the W45 group, by a handsome margin clocking 21:43 to Epsom & Ewell’s Diana Norman’s, who is in the W40 group, 22:05.
