The sun was out, blue skys and Sea views what a pleasant start to the season. This first race is an undulating three lap course by the Sea near Eastbourne.

Certainly a cold one this one, still a few brave souls in shorts and vest as I went for the lets see how much clothes I can put on option. The first time we have run the course which was an undulating course of woodland and field, made for challenging by compacted snow on the course: still the snow made for some good photos.

Well winter certainly arrived for this one: slippy road up to Firle Beacon bitting wind when you got there. Still I spotted a few brave soles in shorts and vest as I comptemplated whether I had bought enough clothes. First time on this course, very scenic view of the sea to one side and most of Sussex to the other.

Another unseasonally warm day. I have prevulsy been battered by the elements at Warren Hill but this year it was a treat of warm sunshine

It was so mild some runners opted for a picnic in after the race.
Season started off with a glorous factor 30 day, with not a cloud in the sky and warm temperature felt like a mid summer off road run rather than the start of the cross country season.
Hailsham were first team followed by Lewes Ac and Hasting AC. See the results tab for full team and individual results.
