The Sussex Schools all-rounders and walkers end the track season for the county at Bedford with the finals of the English Schools' Combined Events and Race Walking championships.

The Sussex squad, which has several times returned with medals or trophies, including last year when they won the Junior Boys event, is our smallest team for many years.

Cleo Tomlinson (Weald) and Isabelle Humphreys (Christs’ Hospital) will complete in the Junior (U15) pentathlon, while April Hanslow (Collyers) competes in the Senior (U19) heptathlon and Liam Hennessy (Hailsham) in the Senior decathlon.

In the walking events Oliver Hopkins (Sx Downs) and Eva Payton-White will race in the Senior 5000m races. 

Also continuing this weekend are the World’s Masters Track and Field championships at Malaga where several Sussex athletes have already achieved podium places.
