Last matches of the summer coming up

Last matches of 2017 coming up

We have the last matches of the 2017 summer coming up at the end of this week. On Friday September 1 our under 15s will go to the Brighton track at the Withdean Stadium for their Sussex under 15 final – first events at 6.15. We have been able to field pretty full teams in the first 3 matches and it would be great if we could again fill most of the events.

Then on Sunday September 3 our under 13s have their final match at K2. First event 12.30.

Combined Events Championships on September 9 and 10

The Sussex and Surrey combined events championships take place over the weekend of September 9 and 10 at Sutton in Surrey. Entries have to be in the end of August – so please get your entries in quickly.

Ethan Scott back to number 1 in the UK

Last week Ethan went to an Open Meeting at Watford and went under 4 and a half minutes for the 1500 metres for the first time – 4 minutes and 29.57 seconds to be precise. This puts him back at number 1 in the UK. I understand he will do another 1500 at the Crawley Open Meeting on Bank Holiday Monday. And I suspect that others of the top under 13s will also find an Open Meeting somewhere over the weekend to try to knock Ethan off of the number 1 spot.
