Best free-to-view sports event

Last Saturday Bexhill Downs saw what was probably the best free-to-view sports event in East Sussex as elite athletes, fine club athletes and determined enthusiasts competed in The Sussex Cross Country Championships.

Well done to all those involved – organisers, runners, volunteers and supporters.

It was inspirational.
