Newplace cross country is our own event in the East Sussex Cross Country League, this was race 3 of 6. This year we ran the race as two 2.5 mile loops rather than one 5 mile loop. The event was a great success with 255 runners not including the juniors taking part and plenty of positiive feedback. As usual there was some quality mud to keep the runners happy. Thank you to those who helped on the day, we couldn’t put this event on without your help. Also thank you to all who bought cakes which we asked for a donation a total of £382 was raised from tea and cake.
It was good to not only see plenty of help in marshalling but also 14 running in the race. Running from Uckfield were Jamie Keddie, Lee Adams, David Crowhurst, Jason Remington, Badrinath Mohandas, Andy Stolton, Chris Tatnell, Richard Page, Catherine Harker, Samantha Kedwards, John Ilfe, Steve Primrose, Christine Tait and Michael Hill. We finished 5th team (we run as a combined team with Heathfield) out of 12 teams.
