Thank you to everyone who turned out for our 10th year anniversary 10k prom race which saw a record turn out for this event.
As for the winners then we must say a huge congratulations to Stuart Holloway for the men and Bethan Male for the women.
Stuart’s winning time was 33.17 and this was his sixth 1st placing for 2017 so no stranger to the podium. The funny thing is that Stuart had not come to Brighton to actually participate in this race but had come down to watch Brighton vs Southampton (FT 1-1) at the Amex. Not a bad day for Stuart at the seaside.
Bethan, who is not attached to any club presently, had a winning time of 39.45 and was just 25 seconds outside of her previous best. Bethan was also a recent winner at the Barns Green Half Marathon in September as well as the Heartbreak Marathon in Fordingbridge in February so a lady for all distances it seems and a great way to end the year.

1st – Stuart Holloway – 33.17 – (City of Salisbury AC & RC)
