Valentines 3.5 Mile – Fun Run
The Valentine’s Run is a multi-terrain race of approximately 3.5 miles, becoming famous for its post-race home-made cakes. Organised by the Horsham Joggers, it is part of the West Sussex Fun Run League. Start is at 10am and Race HQ is the Southwater Scout & Guide Jubilee HQ (note that this is new this year – and its a 10 minute walk to the start so allow plenty of time!) Under the 2014 ‘Paulie’ scale I grade this as a 2 – its mostly flat but the almost inevitable presence of what is usually pretty thick MUD makes this slightly tougher than normal – dress for the conditions and watch the weather. But its FUN! As usual, for Henfield Joggers only, book in advance through me before 30th January and I’ll sort your number out all for £2!
Update: Tuesday 28th January
The race team walked the course yesterday, and it’s looking OK at the moment – about the same as last year, if not a bit better. So we’re expecting to go ahead on Sunday as planned. Obviously, things could still change and I will of course let you know in that unlikely event (at least snow isn’t in the offing like 2012!) – the final course walk is on Saturday.
For old hands, please note that the location of Race HQ has changed this year – it’s in the same road (Church Road), but a different hut (Scouts and Guides, rather than the Church Hall).
