Crawley were victorious in their first fixture in Division 2 South of the joint mens/womens Southern Athletic League against home team Newbury AC, Swindon AC and Kingston & Polytechnic Harriers. The victory was more impressive given the late arrival of the team coach with some athletes unable to warm-up and having only the opportunity to contest the final round of field events.
There was a good turnout of Crawley athletes for the Sussex Road Relay Championships held in spring-like conditions at Christ's Hospital, with the ladies fielding one of their highest number of teams for a number of years.
The Club's only medal winners on the day was the M50 team, (Gary Thayre, Dave Rayner, Chris Cheeseman) who took bronze in the 3 x 2.1 miles event.
With the Boxall twins not having Sussex qualification, the U15B team, (George Crocker, Matt Boxall, Seth Bondonno) finished second in their race but were not eligible for a medal.
Congratulations to the Crawley AC runners who were in London at the same time of day as Mo Farah, and a few faster Kenyan runners. Unfortunately Chris Pratt had to pull out at 23 miles.

Congratulations to Muroe Ritchie for setting a new pb, and U17M Club Record, when competing in the Havant AC Open Meeting at the Mountbatten Leisure Centre, which was attended by about 20 hammer throwers from Sussex and Hampshire. It was sunny, warm and calm with a relaxed mood.
Munroe treated the event as a training activity and completed his usual warm up session. He then produced 3 reasonable but slightly erratic practice throws before starting competition with a series of: NT (foot fault); NT (on sector line LHS); 59.56m; and 62.53m (new PB).
