Summer Trail Running Series

Running off road in the summer is one of the most amazing experiences you can enjoy as a runner. So, if you’re used to sticking to the roads, take a leap of faith and join us in exploring new routes and stunning vistas.

This course is open to anyone who can currently run 3-5 miles at any speed. The summer series is not about hitting it hard and aiming for PBs, but about enjoying the countryside in bloom and enjoying running for the sake of moving your body. We will also be adding the element of our ‘pop up fitness’ atmosphere with our runs exploring totally new areas and incorporating yoga for runners, sea swims and hidden garden cafes complete with strutting peacocks.

Each run will be between 5-8 miles so check the details below for each date. You can use these runs as a way of being guided on the Downs or as a way of starting to build endurance for an autumn half  marathon (Chose from the Denbies vineyard trail half marathon (there is even wine on offer at the refreshment tables!), the Barnes Green Half Marathon (although this is a road half) or the gorgeous option of the Sussex Trail Half Marathon) or even getting some strength in your legs to lay the foundations for a marathon attempt in 2017.


The runs will take places as a mixture of Saturday and Sunday runs from 8.30am – click the recurring event link for all dates. Locations will vary week by week and will require some driving to get to the start location. For lift shares, join our online Facebook running group.
