Some race results are included below but also see Results tab for results for in recent races.
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
Since the race was held on Remembrence day there was a short reading and 2 minute silence before the start of the race.
Very scenic course with only one hill (OK the hill is 2 miles long)
First home was Ross Skelton (Hastings AC) followed by Robert James (Lewes) and Kris Everett (Hastings AC)
For the ladies Emma Richards (Hailsham) followed by Sam Alvarez (Hailsham) and Caroline Wood (Arena 80)
In the Junior race Alfie Clark (Hasting AC) was first followed by Daniel Stidder (Eastbourne) and Nathan Wren (Hasting AC)
First team was Hailsham, Second Lewes and third Hasting AC
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.
See the photos page for the photos from the day taken by my wife Lorraine.
