We have a couple of athletes representing Sussex in this weekend’s South of England Under 15 and Under 20 Inter-County match at Barnet on Sunday August 23. Counties from Cornwall to Norfolk take part match in what is normally a very high-level competition. Henry Aronson will be running in the under 15 boys 1500 metres, while Abby Beswick is doing the under 20 ladies 200 metres and long jump. I can’t remember if there are any relay races in this match – if there are then I expect Abby will be part of the Sussex team.
There is also an Open Meeting hosted by St Marys Richmond at their Twickenham track on Sunday. I think Callum Stone might be running, hoping to set a new club record in the under 13 1500 metres.
And a reminder that there is an Open Meeting over the following weekend on Bank Holiday Monday (August 31) at Crawley.
