A Muddy Good Afternoon

“Mud Glorious Mud” welcomed the 500 runners who reported to Bexhill Down on Saturday for the first major cross-country event of the New Year, the Sussex Cross-country championships.
Mud is a great leveller in cross-county events and although we did not see any surprise winners there were some unusual minor placings. The absence of several contenders through illness was obvious in several events.
Both senior winners were heavily tipped before their races but they both produced intriguing battles.

Sussex teams head to the Inter-counties

The leading Sussex cross-country athletes face their first major test of the season when they travel to Horspath, Oxford for the South of England Inter-county championships on Saturday.

All age groups will be involved except the Under 20 and Senior men but the South of England Masters Championships will also be held at Horspath and it is expected several Sussex Athletes will  be competing in those events.
