Well done to everyone who competed on Saturday on what was a beautiful day at Stanmer Park. There were some excellent performances and a special mention to Finn Halloren 36th in the U13B race and sister Niamh 63rd in the U13 Girls' race who both led home their teams. Ten of our U13's will still be in the same age group next year.

In the U15 and U17 boys races Tomer Tarragano in his first year came 52nd and Brodie Denholm also in his first year came 36th. Both will be running for Sussex in the inter counties in March. Another U15 boy Tommy Blanden did really well to dip under the first 100 in 96th. Stephen Ferroni one of the day's medal favourites was forced to pull out of the U17 race.

In the U17 girls race Nancy Jones came in 39th. The girls team has now been selected for the inter counties and in addition to Nancy well done also to Niamh, Flo Robinson and Olivia Monk and, in their first year, to Lois Dooley and Pia Lewis who are both reserves, and will hopefully get their chance next year.

After a great week for the Brighton youngsters in the Sussex Schools Cross Country it was the turn of the older members of the club who competed in very tough conditions at Lancing in the Sussex Masters Championships.

In the first race for the O/50 and O/60 Keith Newton stormed home in 1st place and with John Lowden in 5th and Tom Ulliot,the Womens team manager, in 18th. The three won the team title, by just one point from Horsham Joggers. In the pensioners O/60 race Peter Witcomb led home the team in 5th place , some 50 seconds faster than he ran last year. He was the 1st O/65.

The O/40 race was again very exciting with three teams in contention going into the last lap. With four to score David Benton had a great run to finish in 3rd place and with Graham Godden 7th, Adam Tribe 9th and, competing in his first Championship,Robin Sutherland in 15th place. This secured the team title by two points from our great rivals Phoenix.

Well done to everyone else who competed. It was a great afternoon for the club.

Well done to Stephen Ferroni and Nancy Jones who won their age groups at the Sussex Schools' Cross Country Championships at Waterhall on Wednesday.

Stephen won the Senior Boys' race with a minute between him and the second placer. Congratulations also to Brodie Denholm and Tomer Tarragano who came third in the Inter and Junior Boys' Races respectively.
