Hickstead Gallop – 8k Fun Run
October 8 @ 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 racecourse. The race is completely off-road within the grounds of the course and traffic free. The route is difficult to describe as you pass the start line 3 times as you circle out in increasing amounts 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 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!
Henfield Joggers only, it’s £3 if you book with Danielle or £5 if you turn up on the day…….you know pre-booking makes sense!
