Here are the key races for Arena members July 2019

Here are the key races for June/July:
Saturday 29th June – The 4th race in the parkrun series.
It’s looking to be great weather for it and as always a big Arena presence is guaranteed. Last year Kelly Holmes crashed in our team photo. No celebrities lined up for this year but we are looking for a new updated team photo to add to the website so lots of sweaty smiles please.
Monday 1st – Super Series – Middle Mile race at Withdean stadium, club members only event.
The first race will be at 6.50 and then subsequent slots depending on numbers. There won’t be any entries on the night as Dixie needs to allocate each runner to a particular race, the closing date for notification of entry is the 28th June. This will give Dixie time to allocate you to a race and email out the information to you. There won’t be a normal training session that night but track is available to use after races for your own session if you wish to do so.
Wednesday 3rd – WSFRL – Steyning AC Roundhill Romp – 6 miles – 7pm
There’s the chance of doing 3 WSFRL races this month and her is the first of them. If you’re looking for a nice mid-week leg stretch then you can’t go wrong with the WSFRL races as at only £3 for entry in advance via your reps (shawn Buck and Anne Miners) these really are great value races.
Sunday 7th – SGP – 20th Bewl 15 Mile
For those pushing themselves in the SGP races, this one has a lovely course so don’t be put off by the warm weather.
Wednesday 10th – RSSRRC/Super Series/SGP – Brighton Phoenix 10K
This is a big one for the club with Arena fielding 59 athletes for this one. This is always a competitive race with a good standard and always good to see the sea of blue vests around the course. Another chance for a team photo at the end.
Sunday 14th – WSFRL – Hove Hornets, Hornets’ Stinger – 10k – 11.00
Here is the second of the months WSFRL races. This may appeal to many of you out there  as you will enjoy a challenging 10km cross-country course with spectacular views of the Downs and featuring hills, styles and varied terrain. Meets down at Waterhall playing fields and again only £3 in advance via your reps. A bargain price for a good race.
Thursday 18th – Super Series – Hill Champs – club members only event
Already a firm favourite of a race as this one does exactly what it says on the tin as you take on the hills on the Downs. Many have signed up for this one already but for more info contact Brigitte Groves. There will be no training session at Hove Park on this night.
Sunday 28th – WSFRL – Henfield Joggers, Seven Stiles – 4 miles – 11am
The third of the WSFRL races for the month and a lovely Sunday morning 4 miler will do the trick here. Absolutely no reason not to do this one as again at £3 it’s a bargain and a great jaunt of only 4 miles so a good excuse
Monday 29th – VET’s League Track & Field – Lewes – 18.30
Another chance for the over 35’s to show that they still have the thought of youth on their side. This is a great fixture to be a part of and even more so if you take yourself out of your comfort zone to try other events i.e high jump, long jump, shot putt etc. Graham Shorter will send out more details nearer the time.
So a pretty busy month all in all. Have fun out there guys.
