Please see results on the race website.
Thanks to all who took part.
Hailsham Harriers held their 31st John Faulds Hellingly 10k Road Race with a magnificent entry of over 300 runners taking to the circular undulating course through the village and taking in Magham Down, the outskirts of Cowbeech and into Cinderford Lane and Grove Hill. This event which forms part of the Sussex Road Race Grand Prix series saw 37 Harriers in the mix with many other club members involved in the organisation on the day. The threat of early morning dark clouds saw some light patchy rain but with no wind this was quite refreshing to the competitors on the course. The quality field saw the current course record broken by the overall winner Paul Navesey of Crawley AC in 33m47s after an early challenge from Hastings AC's Daniel Anderson a previous winner in this event. Harriers David Ayling is still getting quicker and his fine run saw him first home for the club in 7th with 35m44s and Tom Clewley also produced a blistering pace to come home 23rd one ahead of Sue Fry who claimed second lady overall from the winner Fiona De Mauny Walton AC whose time was 38m55s.
In the overall team placings for the men Haywards Heath Harriers were 1st with 43pts, Brighton Arena 80 2nd 58pts and Wadhurst Runners 3rd 117pts and for the ladies Lewes AC 1st 236pts, Hailsham Harriers 2nd 285pts with Wadhurst Runners 3rd 361pts.
Harriers would like to thank Hellingly Parish Council for the use of their Hall as HQ, farmer Richard Lee for the Broad Farm field and especially to the residents of Hellingly for having the event in their village and to sponsors Tempo Running Shop Eastbourne, Waitrose Hailsham, "A brush with Fate" Decorators and Rare Repro graphics, signage, design and print.
