Lewes AC wins the East Sussex Cross Country League
Over six events taking place across East Sussex through the winter Lewes AC emerged as the overall league winners. With events taking place from Eastbourne to Wadhurst, with 12 competing teams and all weathers the cross country league presents a challenge to both runners and clubs alike. It is therefore a great achievement for Lewes AC to come out top at the end of the series.
The team and individual awards were made after the last event which took place at Snapes Wood at Wadhurst. With over 30 awards being presented Lewes runners took a third of the individual awards together with the league team ward.
Taking pride of place in the individual awards were the gold medal winners of John Lowden in the over 50 men category and Anita Amies in the women over 55 category.
The silver medal winners were Mat Homewood (men over 40) Simon Thomas (Men over 50) Bob Hughes (men over 60) Alf Pollard (Men over 65) Maria Judd (women over 45). The club’s bronze medal winners were Mike Lane (men over 65) Sally Norris (senior women) and Catherine Swinson (women over 45)
