A relatively small field of just over 200 runners crossed the finish line at a very hot and humid Newick Will Page 10k, providing an excellent opportunity to pick up those vital Sussex Grand Prix points. A strong field of ten club runners took full advantage for Seaford Striders.
Simon Fletcher was first home, 5th overall in a cracking time of 37:35 (no pun intended, even though he was suffering from bruised ribs, following a fall incurred during training). Luke Borland was also in good form, crossing the line in 14th place in a notable time of 40:08. Hard on his heels was Dave Dunstall in 17th, 40:33. Next came Phil Robinson in 46:59 and Peter Weeks in 50:07.
Next it was the turn of the women, with Anneka Redley taking the honour of being first female Strider in a brilliant time of 50:29, while Anna Norman was not far behind in 52:15. Also running very well were Richard Honeyman in 54:15 and Terry Ward in 55:44.
