Jon Boxall stole the show for the Burgess Hill Runners last weekend as he stormed to a stunning new PB of 1:23:34 at the Brighton Half Marathon.

This popular sea-front event lured several of his club mates to tackle the flat, 13 mile road race and it was no surprise that several achieved personal bests.

Following on from Jon were: Gareth Brennan (1:30:30), Mark Nicholls (1:34:44), Ross Wiggins (1:34:48), Simon Thompson (1:35:59 - PB), Matthew Cawthra (1:38:45 - PB), Susan Lyle (1:43:26 - PB), Hannah Treadman (1:45:57), Oliver Dewdney (1:46:43), Liz Carter (1:48:00), Oliver Jones (1:48:45 - First time), John Palmer (1:49:19), Emma Leeson (1:49:26 - PB), Andrew Murrell (1:50:48), Gayle Tyler (1:52:13), Mark Craigs (1:52:32), Lee Crow (1:53:40), Katia Hannah (1:53:44 - PB), Laura Fowles (1:56:01 - PB), Jean Leak (1:56:22 - PB), Jenny Nicoll (1:57:03), Keith Brown (1:57:43 - First time), Carole Mills (1:58:18 - PB), Gill Berglund (2:02:17 - PB), Jackie Osborne (2:03:59), Steve Osborne (2:04:02), Claire Giles (2:06:00 - PB), Philippe Ecaille (2:15:10), Kim Cruttenden (2:15:20 - First time), Anita Harris (2:20:20 - PB), Hannah Watkins (2:27:34), Caz Wadey (2:28:10) and Jay Wadey (2:33:16).
