I know it seems like a long time ago (just over a week now) but the news has come in that Arena ladies broke their own W40 course record at this event.
News on the Sussex athletics website quotes “The rest of the records all came in the Masters’ races with Arena 80 breaking their own year old W40 aggregate record of 38:06 with a fine clocking of 36:43 while Julie Briggs, who had anchored the Arena 80 team broke Sharon Elder’s (Worthing) 2012 lap record of 12:00 by two seconds”.
if the day wasn’t amazing enough with the sheer camaraderie shown from all of our members then this is surely the icing on the cake. What a proud day for Arena 80, our ladies and along with Julie Briggs it really doesn’t get any better than this. The club has gone from strength to strength over the last year with many outstanding results from our members and to see Arena breaking records goes to prove how much of an improved club we are.
Our biggest congratulations to the ladies and Julie Briggs on such an amazing result.
