The 2017 Eastbourne College steeplechase took place on Thursday 16 March. Runners from every house and every year group gathered on the South Downs to compete in this traditional annual event and with almost every pupil wearing their specific house shirt, it was a very colourful event.
The weather was kind and whilst the start was briefly encased in a rather chilly sea mist, the competitors quickly emerged into glorious spring sunshine for the majority of the race.
The winning houses were Blackwater and Reeves.
The individual results for the six classes were as follows:
1st Rebekah Agunede, 2nd Natasha Symes, 3rd Elo Quitman
1st Edward Armitage, 2nd Ethan Hackett, 3rd Josh Veitch
1st Honey Curtis, 2nd Annie Wilson, 3rd Chloe Cox
1st Adam Armitage, 2nd Max Redman, 3rd Daniel Toole
1st Jess Lamb, 2nd Nicole Wallbridge-Bourmistrova, 3rd Amelia Baron
1st Edward Mannhardt, 2nd Matt Pusey, 3rd Hugh Turnbull
Congratulations to everyone who took part.
