Hedgehoppers 5 mile – Fun Run
May 13, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm£3
This is a 5 mile course on undulating paths over the South Downs starting and finishing 1/2 a mile from Portslade Sports Centre.
Changing, showers and toilets are available at the Sports Centre. First Aid in attendance. Spot prizes.
Please only park in the lower car park at Portslade Aldridge Community Academy and allow a 5 minute walk from there to the Sports Centre. Where possible please car share or use public transport.
No parking available at the start / finish.
The start for this event is about a 10 minute walk/jog back up the road and over onto the Down – be careful with traffic.
Ive not run this one myself, but am reliably informed that the route is up toward Devils Dyke and then around and down the same path back down – about 2 miles up approx before a level bit and a canter back down. It’s very definitely uphill and there’s a slightly cheeky uphill ‘bounce’ on the way down that that gets people every year!
Great opportunity to have some fun with hills! If you’re in, let Andy know by Wednesday, 3rd May – you know it makes sense.
