Tuff Fitty’s Christmas Schedule

With some of our partner venues closing earlier between Christmas and the New Year, it is worth setting out our Festive schedule over the coming three weeks:-

Saturday morning Breakfast run. Meet at 7:20am ready to run at 7:30 from The Beefeater at Crossbush BN18 9PQ. Festive garments are positively encouraged with runners departing for a variety of distances. There will be several running a short course ahead of the next day’s race, so open to all where on return to Crossbush we indulge in the ‘all you can eat breakfast’, either full English £9.99 with an endless supply of drinks or the continental spread for £7.99

Tuff Fitty’s usual Saturday late afternoon swim with a choice of coached and uncoached lanes. However we are once again reserving a lane to film swimmers (underwater and above) with swimmers reviewing their own footage afterwards. Limited availability, please book on our app.

Portmouth Coastal Ultra/Marathon and Half. We have several Tuffs entered; good luck to all

Monday evening Christmas Lights run. Meet on the promenade opposite The Wave (by The Beach Cafe) Littlehampton for a run around the Littlehampton district to search out the best Christmas lights. (all abilities welcome)

Tuff’s Club Zwift ride. Join us for a ride with other Tuffs where as usual a ‘band’ will be in place so all riders of any ability remain in the pack

Our standard Wednesday evening Track session at Worthing Leisure Centre, However as this will be the last track session of 2023 please feel able to wear anything festive and our illustrious band of coaches will turn the set into a Festive Frolic, so you do not want to miss out.

Our last Thursday swim of 2023

Our standard Saturday run, HOWEVER do check on our App- Spond as many participants may be saving themselves “Sunday’s 24 in 24” – see below.

As our last swim before Christmas, come along for the ‘Coaches Christmas Caper’ in The Wave pool.

“24 in 24” This successful event from last year returns as our standard Saturday morning run gains renewed vigour as attendees turn up on Sunday the 24th and run Twenty Four K on the Twenty Fourth of December. All welcome but you will be especially welcome with some festive or fancy dress attire.

Not a Tuff event but advertised here as several members are looking to attend the Boxing day dip in the sea organised by The Beach Cafe opposite The Wave. Fancy it? details here

Darklink 10K – whilst this headtorch run race is now oversubscribed we have twenty Tuffs running with Jay & Danny there as Sussex Trail Event directors – good luck all.

Our Saturday morning run continues Meet by the lower Castle gates Arundel BN18 9PA

We have secured a Tuff booking at Arundel Lido for one hour swim from 1pm. The pool will be heated with the timing right for those that saw the New Year in with style or those looking to run the HangOver 5 or New Year parkruns, or simply cycle over. What a great way to get your New Year resolutions off to a flyer.


Tuff Fitty’s training schedule fully resumes week commencing 1st January with Tuesday Zwift, Wednesday Track, Thursday swim and of course Saturday 6th sees the return of our popular Swim Power Hour at The Wave
