Bright10 win for Evans - The Weekend.

Lewes Athletic Club’s Tom Evans, along with several other leading Sussex runners, gave the Sussex Cross-country League event at Goodwood a miss last weekend to concentrate on the “Bright10” road race at Brighton on Sunday and he did it to good effect.

Evans, who is primarily a triathlete and James Westlake (Crawley) who is a footballer fought through the early stages of the race but Evans moved clear for a handsome victory in 51:46 to the Crawley runner’s 52:33 with David Wilson (Thames Hare and Hounds) in third place in 52:30.

Evans wins at Peterborough - The Sidas at Chester. Sussex League at Goodwood.

Spannagl and Evans fastest at Goodwood

Johanna Spannagl made a most successful return to competitive athletics at the Sussex Cross-country Relays championships last Saturday.

A decade ago the Horsham Blue Star Harrier was one of the most promising middle distance runners on the Sussex scene and she still holds the Under 15 course record at Goodwood but studies prevented her fulfilling her promise. Now back in action she can prove a real power on the Sussex athletic scene at least.

Cross-country Relays

Provisional results from the Cross-country relays are now posted but fastest laps times are only available for the U15 and U13 age groups. The rest of the results may not be available until mid-week after Clubs have checked their names.

The senior team results have already been changed as Brighton & Hove had a “Non Sussex” runner in their team so Lewes step up to be champions ahead of Chichester and Brighton Phoenix.

The M40 title was won by Haywards Heath, M50 by Brighton & Hove and M60 by Crawley.

Sussex has a new World Champion

We have a new World Champion in Sussex.

Brighton & Hove’s Emma Dixon, who was runner up in the Sussex senior cross-country championship in January has won the World Junior (20-24 age group) Sprint Triathlon Championship in Rotterdam.

Cross-Country Relay battles

A record number of teams lined up for the Sussex Cross-country relay championships on the Downs at Goodwood and they produced a fine afternoon’s racing on Saturday.

Drizzly rain for the first couple of races and intermittent showers during the afternoon failed to put a damper on the racing.

Individual results will not be available until Monday but most of the team results are known.

The weekend

A series a fine placings, on the roads, at Crystal Palace last weekend could be transposed to the Downs at Goodwood on Saturday when the Sussex Cross-Country relays championships are held in conjunction with the Chichester Open Cross-Country relays.

Starting at 12.00 noon with Under 13 races  there will be races for Under 15s at 12.45am and the senior races, which include Under 17s and Veterans, at 1.30am for Women and 2.30am for Men.

One hundred and sixty teams have been entered for this year’s event which should produce some good racing.
