HOST club Horsham Joggers dominated the annual Horsham Lions and Horsham Joggers 10k race on Sunday morning.

Andy Robinson led home a field of more than 300 runners, while club-mates Steve Nicholls and Bryan Camfield took third and fourth respectively to cap a great day for the Joggers.

Although up against the Bognor 10k and the Heroes 10k on Brighton seafront, organisers were still happy with the turnout for the annual race which raises thousands of pounds for local charities. This year more than £2,000 which will be donated to St Catherine’s hospice, Motor Neurone Disease Association and Horsham Lions Charities.

Race director Andy Spriggs, who is now stepping down after eight years, said: “The Joggers did well and I cannot just how many of them entered, there were a lot of entries on the day. It was successful and we are pleased with what we raised.”

Arena AC’s Emily Proto, pictured, right, was the first female finisher, clocking an impressive time of 40m 12s.

For the Joggers, Camfield claimed taking the Male Vet 45 prize. Steve Wigmore took the Male Vet 50 trophy and Rachel Guckenheim was the second female overall to finish.

Meanwhile, joggers contested the Bognor 10k , Pete O’Connell finished second Male Vet 50 and Val Purnell second Female Vet 50.
