Sussex XC League, F3 Events Duathlon 2 and Sparks 10k

Sussex XC League
The final Sussex Cross Country League race 4 took place on Saturday at Lancing Manor in some of the first sun for a long time, although still a bit cold there were good conditions under foot.

There was tight racing with a few close positions in the final scores - with only the odd point between places in the final tally. Full race report and league results should be found here on the Sussex AAA website.

F3 Events - Dorney Lake
Sunday saw a different sky arrive compared to Saturday over the south of england. Not covering the crowds at the Sussex Beacon we thought we'd go north to Windsor and escape the rain. We failed. Thank goodness for the Red Bull Tent and the hot tea from the F3Events team...
The first race was Race 2 in the Winter Duathlon Series -the gallery is here:

After lunch it was the Sparks 10k and 5k races - and the gallery for those is here:

The duathlon Started in the rain, it got heavier, and then it finally abated for the last finishers coming through at the end, with the sun glimpsing through the broken clouds to illuminate the competitors against the dark and stormy background.

A quick word to the wise here - if you're a duathlete looking for your photos - please make sure you check the 000 images - a combination of tri-bands, all weather rain jackets and gloves transpired to cover up almost every single number some of you had - which makes it difficult for us to identify you in the pictures. use the caption correction email link just under the previews if you find one that needs to be sorted out.

The 10k and 5k started off in dry weather and remained dry. We could actually see the boathouse in the distance at the other end of the lake and the ice covering half of the lake slowly started to melt off. Some great racing and fast times, as well as some real challenges achieved. 

Here's a small selection from the day below, enjoy the galleries on the links above !
