Tom, Sam, Mark, Hannah and Lucy after their 2.5 mile cross country over very steep hills on Eastbourne downs yesterday. Thank you Danny Garbett (pictured) for organising the events.
The club's next race is the Starfish Marathon & Races on 15th May. There will be Junior Races of 500m, 1km & 2km at 9:00am before the main event.
If you would like to marshal for some or all of the event please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Lovely photo of the Juniors after their Saturday training session. Happy feet!
The final results are in for the ESSCCL series and brt had no less than 4 age group winners in the Junior section! The trophies were won by Lucy Boreham, Hannah Frais, Ferdi Ibrahim and Mark Griffin.
Unfortunately the last race coincided with our own club junior and 5km races so the juniors were unable to attend the ceremony. However the adult members who rushed over to Pett to run after running the Bexhill race were able to pick up the trophies on their behalf.
The club gained a string of 2nd & third places too. Well done to all the juniors who ran the series. Take a look at the overall results here.
Meanwhile at the Alex Hall Memorial Run Sam Gillam went the whole distance and clocked a great time of 25:22 for 5km. Mark Griffin had to pull out due to injury-rest up Mark there will be lots of other chances!
