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?

The Downland Challenge was an old school 30 mile Ultra put on by Haywards Heath Harriers until 2014. It was many locals first Ultra and was hard, only had 3 aid stations with only Jelly babies and water, we will be bringing this back to the racing calendar on the same day as our 13 the the hard way Half Marathon.
The Downland originally started in Clayton Playing fields but this is no longer viable so it will start a mile down the road at Underhill lane where the half starts,
You will have to take on the lung busting climb up the Tank tracks to the South Downs way which you will follow to Southease where you will turn around and retrace your steps.
We aim to keep it as it was intended with only 3 aid stations but we will pile them high as we usually do
Many Tuffs have undertaken this race; course not too challenging
