Indoors this Weekend - Steyning 15km

Indoor athletics dominates the athletics picture for Sussex athletes this weekend with the Sussex Indoor championships being held at the Sutton Arena in conjunction with the Surrey County Championships.

Track events will be held on Saturday and the field events on Sunday.

They will however be missing a couple of the leading Sussex athletes who have been invited to compete at the Muller International Invitation Games at Birmingham.

League Winners on Minimum Points

Five athletes scored minimum points to win this season’s Sussex Cross-country League titles plus two masters who were the only ones to complete all three races in their age groups.

Youngsters Bethany Cook (Bodyworks) U15 girls and Miles Waterworth (Crawley) U13 boys both dominated strong opposition to stamp their authority on their age groups as did Alex Richer (Horsham) in the U17 women though her races were held in conjunction with the senior race.

Windy Conditions at Bexhill

Saturday produced an extra obstacle for the runners in the final Sussex Cross-country League races of the season at Bexhill Down when they were confronted with a persistent 24 mph south west wind. Course manager Terry Skelton described the conditions as “the strongest wind I can remember since I have been marking the course”.

Apart from the wind conditions were good, dry with firm going.

Racing as always was strong with several new faces winning their events.
