I've not run it before but it was recommended by a friend...

Run it two years ago and going to try it again this year. Nice route through lovely woodland with patches of the best Bluebells in the area. Mostly over hard packed tracks. Sharp up hill in the last half mile. So leave energy for that.

Is it suitable for road shoes or should I wear trail shoes?
06/04/2011 at 15:47
I will be there

I'd say wear trail shoes as from memory I think there are a few muddy paths stretches. Weather now is drying things out lovely at the moment? So road shoes with a bit of a grip on the sole may well be fine especially on the hard tracks?

Thanks, see you there

Ran the course yesterday morning in a pair of standard running shoes and it was fine. Virtually all of it is dry now and the bits that are slightly muddy you can run around. The bluebells are coming out too which is good - two weeks earlier than normal. See you all next Sunday.

Hello all ...

Yep, I'll be towards the rear of the field on Sunday next - looking forward to it - Is the last uphill on-'road'? (I think it's called Selden Lane - ending near The Fox pub (excellent real ales there by the way ....) .

Using this race as a bit of a gauge as to how I'll do in The Three Forts half in 3 weeks time.

Good luck, Lisa - I remember you ran well at the Steyning Stinger - I hope your training has been going well since!

... and everyone else, have a grea trun through sunny, dry, Angmering on Sunday

Just to let you know the numbers, race details and maps were posted yesterday with a first class stamp so you should hopefully get them today or tomorrow.
The first 1km is downhill, 2-3km are a gradual climb to the top of Monarchs Way (nothing too severe) then its flat to 5.5km, downhill to 7km then mainly flat to 9km with a couple of small bumps. Whilst the hill at the end seems daunting as you approach it, it is only about 200m long so before you know it it's over! Water will be at 4.3km and unless there's a heatwave this will be the only one on the course. I'll keep you updated if there's anything of note.
