Blackstock Farm, Hellingly was the brand new location for the Final held on 23rd February in cloudy/windy conditions but otherwise not too bad considering the winter so far! Of course, the ground under foot was the worst it could be but thankfully St John Ambulance (who were in attendance) were not needed. The main car park was full to capacity and the overflow car park was used by some brave souls who risked being stuck in the mud.

The Junior race of just under a mile started at 10.30 a.m. (as usual) and was well supported by a local school, other youngsters and their parents. From the same start (a half an hour later) the main event consisted of one lap of fields and three laps of very undulating terrain through wooded areas, past lakes and the River Cuckmere with farm animals and wildfowl all looking on. The distance was over 5 miles but incredibly nobody complained but everyone said "that was really tough" or words to that effect!

Hailsham Harriers (the runners) put up a brave fight but came home second in the team event to Lewes A.C. However, with so many of our club helping on the day this was hardly surprising. Very grateful thanks to those who marshalled (to name each of you would take up too much of this article but you know who you are). However, worthy of special mention are Sam Alvarez and Kevin (Dave) Tyler for their extra assistance as are the Salvidge family and their farm manager Steve for allowing us to churn up their land for free!

Look on our and the ESSCCL website for brilliant photos taken on the day and decide between now and the AGM whether we (as the organisers) want to do it all again. Amazingly, Blackstock Farm have agreed to have us back in a year`s time - if we wish?
