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.
