Sussex Road Running Grand Prix
Prior to the pandemic the Sussex Road Racing Grand Prix was organised as both an individual and team competition with each event taking place at venues in East and West Sussex. To win an individual or team prize runner had to perform well over a series of races.
There were 17 events that counted, including our very own Lewes Downland 10. Competitors could do as many races as they liked but only the best eight results count. A catch was that two of these eight results must be events of 10 miles or more.
The competition ran from January to December over each year.
However since the pandemic and the cancellation of many of the races that made up the Grand Prix the future of this event is being considered.

This Road Race Challenge is specifically aimed at promoting, developing and rewarding competitive road racing among the county’s best distance runners. Prior to the pandemic the challenge consisted of six road races selected to form part of the Challenge. Club teams and individuals must compete in three of the six races to score points. Lewes AC athletes and the club compete successfully as part of this competition.
