Sussex Grand Prix
Sussex Beacon Half Marathon
Sun 21 Feb 2010
Cold, wet and windy with race organisation that, well, just fell apart at the seams. The question has to be asked whether the race can sustain such numbers (6000+ finishers). Having said that, this was a good day for Phoenix. To quote The Argus:
...Dave Carter helped Phoenix scoop the team prize ahead of B&H. Carter came seventh with Bruce Faulkner, Darryll Hards and Max-Patrick Lippert making up the victorious quartet...
Not only that but Archie Davis won the junior 800m race and Max Pickard the junior 1M event

Sussex XC League 4 - Lancing
Sat 20 Feb 2010
As a lot of our runners were doing the Brighton Half it left another poor turnout from Phoenix, there were just 5 scoring as senior men. Finn McNally(U20) came an excellent 3rd, Tom Coates 11th then vets Malcolm Hughes 28th, Nigel Herron 31st and Simon Roberts 76th. Needless to say we slipped down the league tables to 4th in the seniors and 6th in the vets. Finn was 2nd U20 and that gave him a Silver in the individual league.
Ananda Mello-Costa was our sole senior lady runner.
In the juniors Billy White was 2nd in the U13boys and so took Bronze in the individual league. The U15 boys finished 3rd in the team league.

Sussex XC league (3) Bexhill
Sat 16 Jan 2010
A postponed event which was wet and muddy. In the circumstances there was a mixed turnout to report. Well done to the U13 girls, U15 boys and the senior/vet men for fielding complete teams.
Excellent performances in the junior races from Jodie Mann (12th U13G) Billy White and Archie Davis (3rd and 11th U13B) Robbie Fitzgibbon (6th U15B). The under 15 boys are still holding silver medal position.
There were just two senior women competing (impressive runs from Liz Durman 10th and Anita Jones 37th) but inevitably the team has now dropped to fourth place in division 2.
There were Just two senior men running backed up by four vets. Tom Coates was lead scorer with an excellent 20th place. Vet, Bruce Faulkner was next scorer in 26th. Although in fourth spot there are just 60 points to make up if we can field our top team in the final event at Lancing. The vets too are in fourth just 4 points away from bronze position. Easily attainable with a full turn out at Lancing.

The turn out of seniors was terrific, with A and B teams scoring for both the men's and women's races. In brilliantly sunny but freezing conditions we did well to take bronze team medals in both events.
Josh Guilmant (5th) and Pat Davoren (6th) were top scorers for the men with James Miles (26th), Tom Coates (27th), Max-Patrick Lippert (30th) and Bruce Faulkner (36th) completing the A team. Sophie Coleman (2nd), Erica Martin (12th), Liz Durman (20th) and Anita Jones (46th) made up the women's A team. Katie KIdger, who has transferred to Phoenix, was 19th but is not yet eligible to score for us. Looks like she is going to be a great asset for the women's team.
The junior age groups were represented thinly with no entries at all for U13 and U15 girls and complete teams only for U15 boys (silver team medal – William Dukin individual silver) and U17 boys (bronze team medal – Charlie Grice individual gold). Beth Kidger took individual bronze for the U17 girls and Finn McNally silver for U20 men. Sophie Coleman (second in the senior women's race) took gold for U20 women.

Over 60 Men Victorious at Dene Park
On a bright Sunday afternoon the over 60 men's team of Andrew Field, Andrew Haig and, celebrating his birthday, Pat Kearney finished 2nd , 4th and 10th respectively to easily retain the title won last year with a 16 point lead over Brighton in 2nd and Chichester 3rd, a further 3 points back.
The over 50's and over 40's were missing some key runners due to injury but both teams still put in strong performances to register 4th places in their races.
Sussex Grand Prix
Sun 29 Nov 2009
The last race in this year's Grand Prix series and probably the most challenging of the 10Ks. Add three minutes to your usual time is what one hears. Bearing that in mind - some useful performances here. Lance was actually race leader for, ooh, three seconds before settling for an excellent 17th place.
17th Lance Bellers 41:06, 38th Terry Avey 43:40, 53rd Andrew Haig 45:03, 70th Nathan Broderick 46:28, 194th Jewel O'Connel 54:01
