The race is on mixed terrain which is mostly off-road, taking in a lap of the school grounds before heading off to Southwater along the Downs Link, through the Country Park, and back along the Downs Link. In dry conditions this can be a fast course, being mainly flat and also an ideal first-time race.
Prizes are awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd men and ladies, as well as age category awards for over 40, over 50 and over 60 men and women and over 70 men. To encourage more younger runners the entry age has been lowered to 15, and additional prizes will be awarded to the first under 18 male and female runners. All finishers will receive a medal.
Each year a donation is made to a charity from the proceeds of the race. The 2018/19 charity is Contact the Elderly.
Tuff Fitty’s weekly track session.
The format is a warm up, followed by drills and then into a main set – all welcome
The cost is £2 per person but the session is usually run by two coaches
It is suggested that you wear layered clothing for the warm up/warm down and useful to bring a drinks bottle for trackside
Our Thursday evening swim session which is led by our Club Coaches
Please arrive at least 10 minutes early, meeting in the seated area by the Cafe. Swimmers pay Tuff Fitty officials thereafter we move through the reception barriers, into the changing village to be poolside ready for an 8pm start
The cost is £4 for members but if you are not a member of Tuff Fitty we welcome your attendance for two or three sessions at the non-member rate of £6. After this time if you wish to continue we would ask that you join our club as a member. All you need is your swim costume and goggles, but we do recommend a drinks bottle for poolside (no glass bottles though). (fancy trisuits are kept for races)
The changing village has lockers which take a £1 coin (refunded)
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?
