Nicole Taylor ran her first senior race for Sussex, at the UK Inter Counties Cross Country Championship and placed 85th, being the third runner home for the county.
She was selected to race for the South of England, under 20 team, at the Home Counties International in Antrim, where she placed 16th. She then helped the Tonbridge women’s team to 11th place at the South of England Road Relay Championships, at Milton Keynes, which is the club’s highest ever position.
Ryan Driscoll had three races in March and all on different surfaces. He ran his first senior UK Inter Counties Cross Country Championship, representing Sussex and placed 58th and third scorer for the county.
He then represented St Mary’s University in an outdoor 1500 metres, at the varsity match against Brunel. He won in a very encouraging early season time of 3.57.
At the end of the month Ryan ran the opening leg for the Tonbridge Athletic Club’s twelve-man team, at the South of England Road Relay Championships, at Milton Keynes. The team finished 4th to beat the previous best recorded by the club, by three places.
Tom Cox had just two races in March, being 122nd in the UK Inter Counties Cross Country Championship, representing Kent. He was a member of the Kent team that won the nine to score championship event.
Tom, like Ryan, was a member of the Tonbridge team that finished 4th at the South of England Road Relay Championships.
Luca Russo raced in two of the races that Ryan had. He competed for St Marys University in the outdoor 1500 metres, at the varsity match against Brunel. He finished strongly and placed 2nd to Ryan, recording 3.58.
At the end of the month he ran the anchor leg for Tonbridge in the South of England Road Relay Championships, at Milton Keynes. Luca ran a very strong leg to move Tonbridge passed Bedford to clinch the 4th spot.
Robbie Farnham-Rose had two track races planned in March, but ended up just doing one of them. The first was due to be the Distance Medley Relay event at the USA National Collegiate Championships. Robbie was down to run the fourth leg for the Alabama University team, but never got to race as their opening leg athlete pulled up injured.
On the last weekend of March he opened his outdoor track season with a 1500 metres victory in the Crimson Tide Invitational Meet, recording 3.46.58, which is just a second away from his personal best.
Dominic Brown , after a long spell of recuperating from illness, bounced back by running a superb 15.45 split for his leg at the South of England Road Relay Championships, at Milton Keynes. This was over 5053 metres or 3.14 miles and was the eighth fastest lap of the whole race.
Sean Molloy has been able to train more consistently in March and has completed some good training sessions, although is yet to race.
Andy Combs – no further progress and currently focused on his career.
