On a blustery afternoon at the top of the Sussex Downs record fields totalling over 550 finishers competed in the first of the Brooks Sussex League fixtures at Goodwood on Saturday. All age groups were well supported with strong fields and there was competitive racing throughout the day.
No less than 128 finishers completed senior womens race, beating the previous best by some distance, and it was in-form under 17 Martha Coyle of Brighton & Hove who eventually got the better of Arena 80’s Julie Briggs with another under 17 Sophie Markwick from Hastings in 3rd. With Keith May and his results team in the midst of calculating team positions it looks as though Lewes have scored their first ever women’s team victory ahead of Brighton & Hove and Arena 80. For the senior men, John Pepper made it two league wins in as many weeks by following his Surrey league win last weekend with a triumph here over Kevin Rojas from Brighton & Hove, recovering well after his recent stunning marathon, and teammate Dimosthenis Evangelidis in 3rd. In his first year as an under 20 Harry Leleu from Chichester had a fine run in 5th.
