The 35th Brighton 10K - Sunday 18th November

The Brighton 10K is an annual fundraising event for the club. Money from the event has been used to provide transport for some of the Brighton and Hove teams competing all over the country, as well as for providing help for individual or small groups of athletes depending on need. Also, the roof of the clubhouse was recently completely replaced at a cost of over £10,000 which was provided by the proceeds.

This year the event is being run on the seafront and we need a number of volunteers to help look after the runners and marshall the route. Please try to come along and help, it is your club and this is a way you can make a real difference. Your coaches and officials put in hours of unpaid volunteering work and it would be great to help repay them a little with a contribution of your time.

The event starts at 9.30 and ends at 12.30 (although volunteers (depending on tasks may be needed a little outside these hours.

Emma Bristow is co-ordinating volunteers from the club so please e-mail her with your availability. This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Thank you in advance, this makes a real difference.

ESAA LOGOCongratulations to the 12 athletes from our club who have been selected to represent Sussex at the English Schools Track & Field Championships, which takes place in Birmingham from the 13th– 14th July.

The athletes have been chosen based on their success at the area school trials, the Sussex Schools’ Championships and their other performances this season. Qualification standards are very high and just achieving these is an accomplishment.

The English Schools’ Championships represents the pinnacle of schools-based competition in England. Organised entirely by volunteer teachers, it brings together the best athletes in each County to compete for the honour of being the best athlete in the country at their event.

None of this would happen without our dedicated coaches. Several of whom also coach athletes from other clubs who will be competing at the championships.

For some of our athletes this is their first English Schools and for others such as Edan Cole competing for a fourth time, having won the Inter Boys title in 2016 and Emily Robinson competing for the fifth time - it will be their last.

Lizzie Korczak won the Junior girls javelin in 2017 and she will be hoping to medal again in the Inter-girls competition as she is presently ranked second in the UK. Amber Anning missed her fourth champs last year as she was competing for England at the Commonwealth Youth Games. She has two titles the Junior Girls 200m from 2015 and the Inter girls 300m a year later. This year she is taking on the 400m.

Well done and good luck to you all.

Match report 27th May YDL U17/20

A beautiful day was upon us at Withdean for the second round of the YDL. With a lot of athletes out due to other comps, injury and holidays, Brighton was still able to come away with the win.

Winning is everything but I want to say a well done to those that got seasons bests:

Josh Hawkins (100m), Josh Firsht (400m), Lenny Weaver (1500m), James Martin (200m), Lili Parker (100m & 200m), Alice Dungworth (400m), Amy Gamblin (1500m), Ruth Noble (HJ), Georgia Coleshill (TJ), Astrid Blackledge (800m), Eli Middleton (80mH & Javelin), Bethany Smith (300mH), Kelsey Sutherland (HJ), Isabel Lay

And those that got Personal bests:

Adam McConnell (Hammer), Ed Jones (100m), Tom Ridley (200m, 400mH & Javelin), Joseph Luker (1500m & 3000m), Torin Seagrove (100mH & HJ), Connor Fairhall (Long Jump, Shot), Sam Williamson (Shot & Hammer), Baxter Fletcher (800m), Connie Petronzio (400m), Natasha Russell (400mH), Amy Gamblin (1500mSC), Georgia Cook (LJ & TJ), Moyo Oloko (Shot), Wiktoria Arasztowska (Discus & Javelin), Kelsey Sutherland (100m), Bethany Smith (300m), Lois Dooley (3K), Gracie Bernard, (1500mSC), Astrid Blackledge (1500mSC), Eli Middleton (Shot), Anna Dornbusch (Hammer), Joe Clayson (1500m)

The focus of this league is to make sure there is an opportunity of athletes to develop and the results from the previous two comps has shown that.

I would like to say a thank you to everyone that competed, helped, officiating, scoring, serving, running, coaching, cheering. They do count towards a smooth comp and points for the team.

As is, Brighton are joint top of the league with Southampton. Both teams are strong (Southampton full events, Brighton win) and so for the last match the Red & Black will need to do both as it is on their turf. Winner gets promoted to Southern 1!

Monday, 28 May 2018 17:10

Competing at the England Athletics Combined Events Championships at Bedford, Under 23 Katie Garland broke the month old Sussex Senior Women's heptathlon record en route to a national bronze medal.

The record had stood for 29 years to Worthing's Debbie Woolgar, until Havant's Elise Lovell broke a month ago. Across the weekend Garland achieved an unbelievable five personal best including a new club record of 14.30s for the 100m Hurdles and a club record of 5.95m/ 6.10m (w/a) in the Long Jump - her best for three years.

Katie's full series was as follows: 14.30s hurdles (PB)/ 1.74m - High Jump/ 10.46m Shot Putt (PB)/ 24.58s - 200m (PB)/ 6.10m Long Jump (PB)/32.61 - Javelin (PB) and 2:24.42 - 800m.

Meanwhile at the Loughborough Javelin Carnival on Monday under 17 athlete Lizzie Korczak broke Samantha Redd's longstanding club and county record with a magnificent throw of 45.99m. Lizzie is last year's English Schools' Junior Girls champion and a first year in the U17 age group.

Congratulations to you both.
