SAC are targeting this local National Aquathlon event in September.

As such the club have arranged an additional discount for our members (check you email for details of the code). The subsidy, combined with standard 10%, reduces entry from £42 to £27.80 (or £23.11 if you’re also a BTF member).

Hoping to see a good number of SAC participants in SAC colours!

Henfield Joggers take glory (SAC demand enquiry) at the 2021 STEYNFIELD.

The annual Steynfield inter-club race between Steyning AC and Henfield Joggers took place in near perfect conditions on Thursday evening. There was a good Steyning AC turnout of 26 finally tuned athletes – the fact that Henfield Joggers managed to turn out 46 runners only goes to prove that their love for sun and sangria is less than ours (we were missing several members off on holiday).

So, here’s the point: Henfield Joggers either need to change their name, or tighten up on their membership criteria: …they were not all ‘Joggers’!

The starting hooter (didn’t) go off and then, like a pack of elite Kenyan Olympic distance runners, the Henfield (Not) Joggers disappeared out of sight, their ZoomX Vaporfly’s kicking up dust in the faces of Rich and Ant, who made a pitiful attempt to stay with them.

These Henfield Kenyan Olympians Not Joggers continued at a completely unacceptable pace, covered the 5mile course in less than 30minutes and filled the first four places – frankly rude.

We did try – we packed together nicely, and supported and encouraged each other along the way. I’d like to say we all finished looking fresh and stylish, but most looked more dead than the statue of St Cuthman that marked the finish line. We did appreciate the support of the crowds that packed the route (thank you Mansfield-Osborns and our amazing marshalls Julie, Sue and Adrian) as well as our precision drilled recording team (Barbara FD and Camilla).

Yes, ok, so Henfield won the Trophy / Old Boot, but we did get some great photos (all featuring Phili!!!) and seems like everyone had a good time.

Roll on next year – hopefully by then Rich and Ant will have done some training, we’ll ban SAC members from taking any holidays, and we’ll ensure our recorders fix the results.

WE WILL COME BACK VICTORIOUS

Great write up! This has been widely shared with Henfield Joggers, who are now considering having new vests printed up with their new name. Luckily the girth of most of them (myself included) will allow the extra words to fit... Lastly, I think you could do with some help next year, so I'm going to apply to join the SAC, if I'm allowed to, of course! Cheers, Dave

Fabulous write-up, on behalf of Henfield Olympian Kenyan Not Joggers, we salute you!

Ahhhh! Great write up. I was away, too (but nowhere sunny 🇬🇧) The photos are great. As are SAC. 🙂

Well done everyone and thank you so much Andy for organising. Great route, with stunning views to distract from the hills 😅

Wow! Well done everyone😀 What a great turnout, even without that amazing cooked breakfast on offer at the end😂. Thanks for organizing it Andy Selman. Looking forward to running with you all in person very soon 😁🏃🏻‍♀️🏃🏻‍♂️

Brilliant turn out on new course with some challenging mud! Ann Naested and Rose Naested half marathon time 3h4m too.

Well done to all those who took part & thanks to Andy Selman for organising. I really wanted to take part in the event, but did not want to run the Half marathon on my own. Maybe if the same scenario presents itself again in the future, we could try to arrange a 'Buddy up' system to encourage more people to join in? 🏃‍♂️🏃‍♂️🏃‍♂️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️

Russell Banks , we may have forgotten to send our times in

Jen Lew 😁💪🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️

Are you on here?x
