Inter Counties at Brighton & Hove 10k

There will be an extra element to this weekend’s Brighton & Hove City 10km Road race from and to the Madeira Drive at Brighton.

Organised by the Brighton & Hove Athletic Club this is usually one of the top 10ks held in Sussex during the year and it is essentially a competitive race rather than the usual Charity or Commercial runs. A talented field of 2,500 runners has been received and forecast conditions are good albeit a light NE wind over the second half of the race.

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.

Skelton in form at Portsmouth

Ross Skelton from Hastings is currently showing his best form to date and running for Brighton Phoenix he turned in a tremendous run in the Great South Run at Portsmouth last weekend.

Storm Brian was at its most severe on the Saturday and caused the cancellation of the 5k race but Sunday, although still pretty breezy, was much milder and former European 10k silver medallist Chris Thompson from Aldershot managed to retain his title in a nippy 48:32.
