The Marathon route is an exciting mix of coast, city and parks. This route is predominantly flat, perfect for a debut marathon! This is a 2 lapped route, which means you have twice the fun and you know whats coming up. 1 lap for the Half
Just like the half marathon and 10k in 2017, you’ll get the chance to run over the Itchen Bridge during your race journey.
At the top of the bridge almost 100ft up, you’ll experience a feast for the eyes with the beautiful view of the city, the River Itchen, commercial centre and out to sea towards the Isle of Wight.
There are many delights on this route including running across the Itchen bridge, alongside the beautiful mouth of the Solent, before running through the Premier league Saints stadium, through the huge expanse of the common, then finally after your two laps finish in front of the Guildhall in the city centre.
This event is an ideal choice for first time Marathon runners and an exciting new course for seasoned pro’s alike. We are expecting approximately 10,000 runners for this event.
A spectator friendly route, with lots of activities, coffee houses and restaurants to explore and make it a weekend away with the whole family.
Take a look at the video below to get a feel for the event from 2017.
Run by our friends at Raw Energy Pursuits
The Angmering Park Estate has once again given us permission to run through their impressive grounds for the 14th Bluebell Trail run in 2018. The courses include the popular 10 mile & 10km trail run around the estate at the height of the bluebell season in West Sussex. The 10 miler takes athletes along ‘The View’ and down private tracks to the foot of the South Downs before returning through the bluebells and the finish at The Fox Pub. The views are stunning! Race HQ is The Fox Pub in Arundel Road at Patching, West Sussex (BN13 3UJ), between Arundel and Worthing in West Sussex. The run will be within the grounds of the estate. Food and drinks will be available at The Fox Pub. The 10km race starts first at 10:15hrs and the 10 miler starts at 10:30hrs.

A run early on Saturday morning can set you up for the weekend. Meet in Mill Road Arundel by the lower Castle gates. As an early start no need to arrive very early, but the runners cater off at 7:30am.
A variety of routes up into Arundel Park, or across to Rewell Woods or a run out to Warningcamp and Angmering Park. As a minimum the route is usually up to 10 miles but for those undertaking spring marathons the mileage does tend to rise through the Autumn heading up towards the South Downs. The route is ideal for some undulations and usually is off road unless the weather conspires against us.
All abilities welcome. Upon return to Arundel a number will stay for a coffee (and something to eat if a sufficiently high mileage has been undertaken) so you may wish to bring a dry top and some money. This offer is not obligatory if you fancy a run, yet would prefer to return straight home
A great way to start the weekend, have you tried it yet?

Inevitably, the clue is in the name of the Wiggle Ups and Downs sportive. It’s an early-season test like few others and its many climbs and descents will get the heart racing no matter what. The tight and technical turns in the fast country lanes add to a great variety of climbing roads in the North and South Downs on a great test of a route.
The route explores hidden country lanes in and around Surrey before cropping up near Godalming – you won’t enter the urban area, instead it’s time to head to the South Downs. You’ll go as far down as Wisborough Green, and into Sussex, before surfacing and edging back into Surrey, where the remainder of the testing hills present themselves near the end of the route.
Conquer the Surrey Hills climbs and you’ll soon be crowned in glory crossing the finish line to receive your finisher’s medal, t-shirt and PowerBar recovery produc
