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.
It’s a while since we did a really long run and so I suggest this route of about 17 miles on Saturday, particularly for those doing Beachy. There are plenty of opportunities for shortcuts and there’s only one proper hill! Drinks and Mars bars or bananas will be available about half way round, as an added incentive.
As we move from the season of light to the season of dark (and damp, and cool….) Hugh has devised a schedule for Wednesdays through until March. You can always find out where the main HJ group is running from on the Find Us page here. Though there will almost always be a group running from Henfield Leisure Centre on a Wednesday – check out the Facebook group for up to the minute details and updates.
