Burgess Hill Runners have been incredibly lucky with the weather, with some beautiful mornings for racing.

One was at the Hampton Court Palace 10k, a flat and picturesque route including historic Bushy Park.

Of four BHR runners who took on this race, first was Annette Maynard (47:12), followed by Ella Stanbrook (50:37), John Palmer (52:34) and Eileen Adam (1:32:32).

Two of those also took part in the Thorney Island 15k race near Chichester the same weekend.

Maynard finished the course in 1:16:07 and came first in her age group as well as seventh woman overall. She was followed by Palmer (1:23:29) and Marie Carey (1:26:45).

Roly’s Run involves a circular route in and around the Meon Valley, dedicated to a ‘much loved friend’, Rich, who passed away in 2018. BHR’s Karen Harvey took part in 4:32:58.

The club had a number of runners at the Crowborough 10k: Ben Watts (42:35), Jamie Goodhead (43:25), Oliver Day (43:42), Travis Golbey (43:51) and Chris Page (56:54).
