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?

Downland Challenge @ Clayton
Aug 10 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
Downland Challenge @ Clayton | England | United Kingdom

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

Prudential RideLondon: the world’s greatest festival of cycling

A true legacy of the 2012 Games

Developed by the Mayor of London and his agencies in 2013, Prudential RideLondon is the world’s greatest festival of cycling. T

While the Mayor and his agencies are the custodians of Prudential RideLondon, the event is managed by the London & Surrey Cycling Partnership (LSCP), a partnership between London Marathon Events Limited (owners and operators of the London Marathon since 1981) and SweetSpot Group Limited (operators of the Tour of Britain).

LSCP works with Transport for London (TfL) and London & Partners (the Mayor’s official promotional organisation) to coordinate the significant technical requirements for the event and work in partnership with London Boroughs, Surrey County Council The Royal Parks London Legacy Development Corporation and British Cycling , who are each integral to the delivery of the event.

Thames Marathon Swim @ Leander Club
Aug 16 @ 7:00 am – 12:00 pm
Thames Marathon Swim @ Leander Club

The Thames Marathon, now in its 10th year, is a 14km long-distance challenge swim from Henley-on-Thames to Marlow. It covers a beautiful stretch of the Thames and has become one of open water swimming’s most prestigious marathon swims.

The swim is split into 4 sections. Swimmers will be required to exit the water at the 3 locks (Hambledon at 4km, Hurley at 10km and Temple at 11.8km) where food and energy snacks will be available.

Participants have the choice of waves – the first four waves will be for faster swimmers wanting to compete against the clock, with those expecting to finish in 3hrs 30 minutes swimming in the first wave. The remaining waves are for those that don’t necessarily want to race, but prefer to enjoy the experience at their own pace.

The manageable chunks make this event do-able for many types of swimmer.
