Southern Masters - Alf Palmer Walks

There was success for Sussex Masters athletes at Horspath on Saturday.  Despite the rain of the previous week the ground was surprisingly firm.  In a departure from last year's flattish course, this year there was a different course with several undulations to make for a more testing race

The women raced 6k.  Arena's Julie Briggs was 2nd overall and took gold for 1st W45 in 24:16, Arena's Dani Tarleton took W45 bronze with 25:17.  Six seconds behind her Arena's Tara Shanahan took 4th W45 slot. Even although all three runners are over 45 they took W40 team Gold for Arena.   

Victory for Bethany in Oxford

A successful defence of her title by Bethany Cook and a third team spot by the U17 women’s team highlighted the Sussex efforts at the South of England Inter-counties cross-country championships at Horspath, Oxford on Saturday.

Competing in the U15 age group Cook employed her usual tactics dominating the race from the start and steaming well clear of Essex runner Abigail Ives clocking 14:54 to 15:13.

Cross-country Inter-Counties

The South of England Inter-county cross-country championships will be held at Horspath, Oxford on Saturday in conjunction with the Masters cross country championships and Sussex will be well represented in most events.

The senior and U20 teams are looking a little thin and the seniors are not expecting to repeat their second team placing of last year.
