Phoenix are in firm contention this year for medals in the men's senior and men's vet team categories in the Sussex Grand Prix. The latest SGP race was Barns Green Half Marathon on 25 September which doubled as the Sussex Championships.
Throughout the campaign we've had two runners who regularly win age group honours and, again, on this occasion they rose to the challenge. Paul Whelpton won the M60–69 category in 1:28.03 an astonishing seven minutes ahead of his nearest rival. Andrew Haig won M70+ in 1:38.52 almost four minutes ahead of his nearest rival.
With two races to go it's fingers crossed for team honours.
