Burgess Hill Runners hosted their annual league race last weekend, “The Downland Dash” which goes from Downlands school in Hassocks and also forms part of the school fair.

Club member Steve Roberts had the headache of all the admin but was pleased with how things went alongside his team of club mates who volunteered to help. Several runners were also spared the time to take part in the run. Paul Prosser was the third finisher, completing the five mile course in a lightning fast time of 29:36. Not far behind, registering their points for the club, were Gary Woolven (30:49), James Collins (31:02), Jon Lelliot (32:13), Kirsty Armstrong (35:33) and Annette Maynard (38:53).

Carole and Amy Mills took part in the Race For Life 10k last weekend to raise money for Cancer Research. It was Amy’s first 10k and they were both delighted to finish together in 55 minutes.

Neil Dawson, Karen Harvey, Nick Dawson and Philippe Ecaille completed the “Giant’s Head” trail marathon in Dorset. They finished in excellent times of 5:55:38, 6:18:15, 6:18:15 and 6:21:59 respectively.

Andy Carr completed the North Downs Way Run, a 30km muddy trail run, in 3:46:09.
