    Sussex XC league (1) Goodwood

    Sat 23 Oct 2010

    And they're off! Cross-country league 1 took place at Goodwood on Saturday 23 October. The good news is that Phoenix were represented in all age groups, both male and female. The less good news is that The U17 boys, the U15 girls, the U13 girls and the senior women were short of a full scoring team. The points are made up by taking the number of runners in each race and adding ten points to complete the scoring and that is a heavy penalty!

    The U13 boys are in a handy 6th place, within striking distance of the medals. Archie Davis ran an excellent race for 4th with the ever reliant Matt Berridge and Will Russell backing him up. The U13 girls are in 11th place with Charlotte Matthews and Madeline Houghton running solidly.

    In the U15 categories Jody Mann was only representative for the girls, running well for 12th. The U15 boys with four runners led by Billy White (3rd) were second team.

    In the U17 boys event Charlie Grice cruised to a well-judged win with Will Durkin impressing for 5th place. They are 5th as a team.

    The senior women would have scored well with a third runner to back up Liz Durman (12th) and Deb Friis (59th). As it happened the cavalry in the guise of Anita and Rachel arrived just too late for the start. So – they are languishing in division 2 for the moment.

    The senior men were short of a few lead runners for one reason or another but put in a spirited performance with Finn McNally (6th), Max Pickard (7th), new member Tom Hopkins (9th) and James Miles (16th) putting us into an excellent 2nd position.

    The vets led by Garry Thayre (51st) are in 5th but just a handfull of points away from 3rd spot.

    Three to go and all to play for as they say, but let's complete those teams folks.

  • Fun Run

    Beachy Head Marathon

    Sat 23 Oct 2010

    Those that ran it were agreed this is a great race but the results are a mess. Only the top ten finishers had names matched to times. This seems inexcusable for such a high profile event.

    As far as we can work out, these are the Phoenix finishers:

    Jon Pike 3:32 16th
    Liz Halliday 3:58 84th
    Matt Plass 4:06 114th
    Elena Moore 4:43 364th

    Excellent performances all round.
