Seaford in Successful Steyning and Goodwood Runs

The Seaford group who ran at GoodwoodCongratulations to the twelve Seaford College staff and students who took part in the Midsummer 5 run earlier this term in Goodwood.

The Goodwood run was hosted by the Chichester Athletics Club and the Chichester Rotary club. It began at Lavant Village Hall, and from there the course went up and onto the Goodwood Motor racing circuit for a lap of the track.

There were almost perfect conditions, although the wind proved a bit of the issue on the exposed track at times.

Following his form from last year, Year 11 pupil Elliot Lewis was first of the students across the line, and Year 11 Anabelle Jeffries was the first girl home for Seaford.

Afterwards the participants were treated to a BBQ hosted by the Chichester Rotary Club, which was very much appreciated by all.At the BBQ afterwards

Teacher Matthew Pitteway, who competed in the run, said: “It was an excellent run at Goodwood. We really appreciated the BBQ afterwards, which made the whole event worthwhile.”

At the end of term three staff members and one student took part in the Steyning Roundhill Romp, a 6 mile race going up from Steyning on to the South Downs way, before returning on a fast downhill track back into to Steyning and the finish line. This was one of the toughest runs of the season, and the Seaford team did well to finish in reasonably good time, considering the record-breaking hot The Seaford team in Steyningtemperatures.
