Sussex Schools Cross Country Championship held at Waterhall on Wed 17th January
Fri, Feb 9, 2018 12:14 PM

Sponsored by the Brighton Marathon, nearly five hundred youngsters contested the six races and although under foot conditions were much milder than usual there was a wicked North West wind that made it hard going for the runners and very uncomfortable for the officials and course markers.

 

In the Year 10/11 Boys race, the winner from two years back, had led throughout the first of the two laps and looked to have things under control but he had not allowed for the determination of TBHA's  Joe Smith who came through strongly over the final mile to take the title by nearly fifty metres in 20:19s.

 

Congratulations to Joe on another fantastic victory and we wish him good luck at the National Schools Championships in March.
