Phoenix AC Preston Park Road Races


Photos from the Phoenix AC Preston park Road Races are now available online here: http://gallery.sussexsportphotography.com/a.tlx?k=2o1zf2a
(A quick bit of admin for the junior races - please make sure you check race number 000 as a lot of race numbers were flapped over and can't be read in the photos.)

In what turned out to be good weather for running (after the silly rain earlier in the morning) the Preston Park Road Races delivered another highly contested selection of races.
In what was thinner turnout for the Mens Sussex GP races compared to previous years - easy GP point scoring was on offer compared to the harder numerical conditions that will be the Brighton 10k next week. Lets see what the weather forecast holds out for then...
The junior races were excellently attended, and since the break into boys and girls races last year - these have both filled up in numbers to healthy proportions. Sussex Running is in safe hands...

Josh showed some mild pleasure at claiming the mens race from James Baker (who to be fair had ran at the XC races at Goodwood the day before), whilst Sam had a recovery race after winning Beachy Head the other week to win the ladies race and then start her training plan for London 2010...

There was the inaugural Friday Ad 1Mile race, which had several people very pleased to beat their 6minute mile time - and managed it ! (number #06 promised to frame his garmin with the finish time on it and never use it again !)

Phoenix AC also managed to win some of their home races - here's a couple of winners:


And suffice to say the bike marshals ended up doing a fair few miles on their bikes to clear the way - and as far as we know they haven't left anyone still circling the park...
Well done everyone on another successful year !
