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?

2018 will be the 10th time the event has taken place and another unique chance to swim the River Arun over the Classic Ironman distance of 3.8km from Ford to Littlehampton. Fast times are guaranteed, just ask last years competitors – so many PB’s! THE START TIME FOR 2018 WILL BE 09:30hrs FROM FORD MARINA. Coaches will leave the RNLI at Littlehampton from 08:30hrs to take competitors to the holding point at Ford Church.
The River Arun runs from Littlehampton and northwards beyond Arundel and Pulborough, West Sussex. The Arun has the second fastest tidal river in the UK so you’re guaranteed a Personal Best! All the usual REP safety cover will be provided including the Harbour Masters launch, pilot boat, safety RIBS, kayaks and spotters on the river bank.
The start will be just before high tide during the 30 minute ‘slack’ water period, before the tide starts to turn.
WETSUITS ARE LIKELY TO BE COMPULSORY. Entry fee includes live timing, unlimited race images, coach transport to start and donations to the RNLI and local charities.
General entries are sold out, but this year two Tuffs are racing – Olly Sampson & Simon Willard – good luck to them both.
Athletes begin with a beach start and embark on a two-loop, 3,8 km swim in the pristine waters of the Mediterranean Sea. The 180 km bike course is the jewel of IRONMAN France as it follows much of the original Nice Triathlon route and passes through villages and mountains. There are 6,500 feet of challenging climbs, but athletes will enjoy beautiful panoramic views. The 42,195 km run will include a flat and fast four-loop course along the Promenade des Anglais. Athletes can expect impressive spectator support along the route.
WORLD WAR RUN is a 10 mile / 5 mile Obstacle Race created to commemorate 100 years since WW1 and honour our fallen heroes.
WORLD WAR RUN will take you through – some of the toughest mud pits you’ll ever jump in, hilly terrain, barbed wire crawls, 80+ obstacles, mustard smoke and our famous paintball gauntlet!
Every runner will receive…
