Round-up and weekend

The change of direction of the course for last Saturday’s Sussex Road Relay championships at Christ’s Hospital seems not to have affected the runners and although no course records were broken (six succumbed last year) a couple were approached.

The races were thought to be one of the best of these championships though a strong wind, more than the change of direction, were considered to have greater effect on the times.

Cook second in the Schools International

Bethany Cook helped the English Schools to victory in the Junior Girls race at the Schools International Cross-country event at Nottingham last weekend.

Cook, who has certainly been the outstanding Sussex cross-country runner this season winning every one of her races until she reached the English Schools championships.

Again Bea Wood from Wiltshire, who appears to have come rather late to what has been a hard and muddy season, got the better of the encounter.

A Silver and two Bronzes for Sussex Schools at Leeds

Cracking runs from Bethany Cook and the Intermediate Girls and Senior Boys teams highlighted a tough English Schools Cross-country championships at Newsam Park, Leeds on Saturday.

Although the muddy course was thought not to be quite as bad as it was a Loughborough the previous weekend and the snow did not arrive until the end of the event they did have to battle with  vicious North East winds.

Bethany Cook and Will Broom were the only Sussex athletes to place in the top twenty of the three hundred plus athletes who contested each of the six events.
