Hickstead Gallop – 8k Fun Run
October 14 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm£3
As the name suggests, this is a trot [get the theme here?] around the grounds of the Hickstead All England show jumping course. The race is completely off-road within the grounds of the course and traffic free. The route is difficult to describe as it changes year on year, but there will be at least two laps and the odd sneaky hill before galloping home!
There are ample parking spaces and toilet facilities. Tea, coffee, sandwiches and cakes are available. No you don’t get to run ON the main showjumping course, but you’re pretty close to it. Lovely scenery, ‘fairly’ flat all the way, and an historic location, what more could you want. It is gently undulating and can be tummocky in places so I grade this a Paulie 2!
