Entries Up Again for this weekend's Sussex Championships.

Entrants for this weekend’s Sussex Track & Field championships at the K2 Leisure centre at Crawley are up for the sixth successive year.

For, what it is believed is the first time more than 1000 entries have been received from 640 athletes. However the increase is in the young athlete’s age groups as there is still a general trend amongst senior athletes to give the championships a miss.

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.

Fast time in Brighton 10k

It was a good day for Sussex athletes in the annual Brighton 10k road race which was held on Sunday after missing last year’s event because of severe weather conditions.

This year the conditions were good and Jonathan Hopkins from Swansea stormed away from a field that by and large lacked the quality that the race usually attracts.

He finished more than one minute ahead of his nearest rival, Crawley’s James Westlake, in a fast time of 29:40s.
