Beach Bum Run @ Bluebird Cafe
Aug 3 @ 7:30 am – 9:00 am
Beach Bum Run @ Bluebird Cafe
Our Saturday run training continues throughout the year from Arundel to get ‘undulations’.
This coming Saturday 3rd August we have a change of venue to The Bluebird Cafe in Ferring (BN12 5QU). Those who haven’t run from there it is down a gravel track towards the beach at the corner of West Drive and South Drive.
Meet to canter off at 7:30am.
It is important to state that this run is open to ALL Tuffs regardless of whether you are Saturday runner or not. It would be equally beneficial to the Outlaw crew who would just like to get their legs turning after their Nottingham adventure, and to those wishing to get out of bed for a run.
~ Low tide is at 7:25am
~weather forecast 17 degrees at 8am with the sun coming out and a light breeze
So ideal conditions for a Beach Bum Run. The route will be out to Worthing Pier and back – circa 10k along the beach.
It is important to stress that there is just one suggestion if you are coming – wear your oldest pair of trainers – not your best race day ones as they are likely to get wet. It is customary to bow to “Pier Pressure” wade around the end of Worthing Pier depending on the height of the tide (usually knee deep) and last year a club member (who shall be nameless) decided to lead a route due south! halfway along. However worth stating this is a run and it never got close to be being a swim.
Most stay for coffee afterwards ( not obligatory) but if you do you may wish to pack a dry top
Hope to see you there

Saturday Morning Run @ Lower Castle Gates, Mill Road. Arundel
Aug 10 @ 7:30 am – 9:30 am
Saturday Morning Run @ Lower Castle Gates, Mill Road. Arundel | England | United Kingdom

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 Tide is right, how about a sea swim

Tuff Fitty are looking to stage more sea swims this year and scheduled in here as the tide is at a suitable time.

The staging of this swim is clearly very dependant on sea conditions, temperature and that there is sufficient safety in numbers, therefore :-

PLEASE CHECK THE TUFF FITTY FORUM OR THE SEPARATE TUFF FITTY SWIMMING GROUP ON FACEBOOK FOR DETAILS TOGETHER WITH CONFIRMED TIMES

Please wear a brightly coloured swim cap – it has been suggested to arrive 10 minutes before high tide in order that everyone can get suited up.

Cycle Chain Gang @ Highdown Hill, Highdown Rise Goring By Sea
Sep 1 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Cycle Chain Gang @ Highdown Hill, Highdown Rise Goring By Sea

Organised for Tuff Fitty by Joe Pascoe & Tom Goddard

The evening has the format of  3 x 8.3 km laps starting and finishing at the lower Highdown car park.  Which is off the A259 Littlehampton Road, up Highdown Rise – post code on the event location

1st lap will be steady, practising rotating, sharing work on the front effectively, staying as a group. 2nd a little quicker but staying as a group. On the final lap people can attack the group and the rest can work together to bring them back. Finally a sprint up to the Highdown pub for a well deserved pint (people are welcome to peel off early to go to the pub).

A few simple rules to adhere to:

Helmets and lights are compulsory

If you have aero bars do not use them when in the group

Do not ride more than two abreast

Only overtake on the right

-If you are not feeling strong enough to take your turn on the front, don’t worry, just wave the next person through

-Take particular care at roundabouts, it’s not a race, just a bit of fun!

Tom & Joe hope to see a lot of Tuff’s there.  If you are to attend it would help to get there in plenty of time or if you feel you will be tight for time advise on Facebook under the entry so the riders can wait for you
