A stunning and picturesque run on the South Downs from the team at Raw Energy on Sunday July 26th 2020. The venue for the event will be at Cowdown, a private farm on top of the downs close to Washington, West Sussex (RH20 4BA). We’ve got a new 10km & our popular 10 mile trail run have some of the best views around stretching as far out to sea as the Rampion Wind Farm and the Norths Downs and Surrey Hills to the north. It’s not actually a dawn start, more like 8am, but it’ll be earlier than some of our other runs to avoid the midday sun if it shines. If our other runs are anything to go by then this is likely to be very popular.

This non wet-suit swim has seen club members participate and 2020 is no exception
The Pier to Pier swim follows a long tradition here on the Isle of Wight. When it first started 68 years ago the Deep Sea Fishermen and other locals threw down the gauntlet during Shanklin Regatta week and challenged each other to a race in the sea from one end of the bay to the other, notably from Sandown Pier to Shanklin Pier. They swam in the traditional swim costumes of the day in the open sea whatever the conditions! No risk assessment, no safety cover probably, few officials, no numbered hats etc. We now run into the sea rather than jump off the pier, we are accompanied (for safety reasons) by so many kayakers, fishermen, Sandown Lifeboat and Ryde Inshore Rescue! We finish the race on the beach by Shanklin Rowing Club.
