After the exertions of last Saturday and the previous weekend, I am not planning a particularly long run this Saturday, so suggest the route below, which shouldn’t be very muddy, even if it’s raining. As it’s less than 10 miles and has an easy-to-follow shortcut, maybe it will appeal to those who don’t usually join us on Saturday mornings….
October’s handicap took us back to the Winter course, and perhaps a cool night brought out fewer runners, so the field was only 8.
The head of the table is still clear, with Fiona injured and not running: she still can catch up with at least one more run.
We are planning to run the western Beachy route in Saturday, starting from Cuckmere Haven, and including the seemingly endless hill out of Alfriston that we all know and love! A few people have expressed an interest in a shorter route and the one below not only omits the hill, but also reduces the distance to no more than 10 miles. There is an option at Litlington to follow the usual route up the steps or to stay on the river bank all the way to the Exceat Bridge.
