The last race of the Sussex Grand Prix season was held at Crowborough, November 27th. As this was the day after the Phoenix awards, those who ran had to ensure they were well behaved the night before!
Especially well done then to the 3 age category firsts of Nigel Herron (V50 - 39:26), Paul Whelpton (V60 - 41:21) and Andrew Haig (V70 - 46:31).
Pictured are the presentations by Mara Yamauchi, the British long-distance track and road runner. She currently holds the second fastest marathon time by a British woman, second only to world-record holder, Paula Radcliffe.
As we await the final results for the season it looks like Phoenix are in contention for a haul of medals including Senior and Vet teams and individuals medals.
