What a fantastic morning – it was ‘sunny’ but hazy, however 24c and high humidity made it warm for everyone, which is why we put a water station in at the 2 mile point – hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
The annual Seven Stiles run (this year kindly sponsored by Alex Cole from Coles Automotive) is run by Henfield Joggers as part of the West Sussex Fun Run League, with Clubs from all over Sussex competing, but is also open to anyone. Which is how our farthest runner came to be from the Czech Republic, working over here at the moment. Nearly 400 runners competed in the 4 mile event, which led people on a course that went down to the River Adur along the bank and back to Henfield Leisure Centre, and more than 50 younger runners competed in the 1 mile event, aimed at Juniors.
Our oldest competitor was 85 years young, while the youngest was ‘some bit younger’ at just 4 years old! This just shows that sport is for everyone! Our thanks to all who helped make this a great success, including Simon and all the staff at Henfield Leisure Centre, and of course all the Henfield Joggers who gave up their time.
