​In 2018 t​hree of the athletes selected for the Sussex Senior Boys ​team for the ​English Schools ​cross-country Championships - Tom Eames, Joe Clayson and Tomer Tarragano -​filmed vlogs through​out​ the season. ​Tom was injured and unable to compete​ at Leeds however, Joe and Tomer produced a final video of their personal experiences at the ​season's finale. Their vlog gives a real flavour of what English Schools XC is all about for the athletes. They were part of the 48​ strong Boys and Girls teams who returned to Sussex with team bronze medals for the Senior Boys and Inter Girls and an individual silver for Beth Cook in the Junior Girls race.
