Saturday Morning Run @ Lower Castle Gates, Mill Road. Arundel
Oct 24 @ 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?

Pulborough Vineyard Run
Oct 25 @ 10:45 am – 11:00 am
Pulborough Vineyard Run

All distances cost £22.50 per person. Choose on the day 5 km, 7.5 km, 10 km, 12.5 km, 15km, 17.5km, 20km – fun run up to a half marathon! It’s all off road, mostly on firm grass / mud / stony walking tracks. Wear suitable exercise clothing, sturdy road trainers or cross country / off road trail trainers (no spikes allowed). One very short section might have a few puddles. Pulborough Vineyards Run founded in 2015 and is run twice a year in May and September.

To make it easier to monitor the 80 spaces limit we have just one booking link for 10km – even if you want to run 5km or half marathon etc book and pay for the 10km and choose your distance on the day / keep going until you want to finish in the 3 hours time limit then double check your time and distance with the timekeeper at the finish line.

It’s a challenging and enjoyable route that you can complete 2-8 times to suit your own fitness levels. If for example, you were originally aiming for 4 laps but only want to complete 3 that’s fine just let the official timekeeper know and they’ll write down your finish time. Times and free photos will be posted on our social media websites (Facebook, Twitter, Linked In, Google+) and via e-mail 48 hours after the event. You can few previous race photo albums and times on our Facebook page.
