Cold conditions and an even colder wind awaited the runners at the Sussex Road Relay Championships held at Christs Hospital School near Horsham.
First race of the day was the U13 Boys and Girls event which consists of teams of three runners where each athlete runs a small ('1 mile 241 yard') lap within the school campus. Although the Boys A team just missed a medal when finishing in fourth place, the last leg runner, Joe Smith ran the fastest leg of the day (6:03) and won the individual first-place plate.
Competing over the same course, the U15 Boys and Girls race saw a strong Crawley Boys team, (Sam Gadsdon, Jamie Dooley and George Crocker) finish second to win the team Silver medal; Crocker (5:41) was the second fastest runner of the day and won the individual second-place plate.
Running a longer (2 Miles 93 yards) lap which leaves the school grounds, the Senior Ladies, including U17Women, and older veteran men (50 and over) race at the same time, albeit in separate races. The M50 men saw fantastic running from Dave Cook (12:14), Terry Barnes (12:43) and a rejuvenated Viesturs Dude (11:28) to win the M50 Silver; Dude ran the third fastest time to win the individual third-place plate. The U17Women saw a close race between two Crawley teams with the Surrey non-scoring team of Jo Boxall, Olivia Dowle and Sophie Dowle finishing just behind Kennagh Marsh, Jasmine McMurray and Kathy Peters. McMurray was the third fastest U17W but due to a Club organisational oversight didn't receive the third-place plate. Susan Aldridge ran the second fastest time by a W40 runner, but didn't win the individual plate because she was running in a mixed age-group team.
The final event of the day was the combined Senior and M40 races, with the M40 teams having four runners and the seniors six. The M40 team, Adrian Haines(11:12), Clive Spencer(11:40), Neil Smith(10:42) and Tim Ellis(11:17) took first place, with Smith's performance making him the fastest M40 of the day to win the individual first-place plate.
