Sleet, Hail, Rain, Wind and Mud.
This is England. Don't be so optimistic, it could be bright beautiful sunshine and blue skies.
I'm in First Steyning Stinger, ran Beachy in October and got the off-road marathon bug. How does Steyning compare to Beachy, in terms of hills, the terrain?
Almost identical. They are both run over the downs so the hills are similar. Of course you don't have the steps or the 7 sisters at the end which in my mind will always make Beachy tougher than other races.
I can't decide between the marathon and the half.

Cheers for that - quite a hilly beast then
Any locals know how the ground is looking for this at the moment? Studs advisable? (they certainly helped at 3 forts last year)
Last year was epic, I finished just under 5 hrs and felt awful, freezing cold, wet and grumpy. A must do for 2013 hope it every bit as challenging as last year.
Looking to do the half or full but the website says entries are full.
I would be willing to buy an entry off anybody who is injured or who cannot run.
The ground is still very soggy in places, a little light rain is forecast between now and then but nothing to make any difference.
I'm missing out again this year as I stopped running over Christmas and now I'm getting married instead.
Yeah it's just show up, register that you're there and go.
Cheers for the ground report Mrs Hog... I guess just bring them all and decide on the morning.
Great, I'm planning an 8 o'clock start as I need to be in Brighton by 3. Plus that way it will look like I'm winning for a while .
Did you not receive a letter about it SussexRunner?
I'm pretty sure I read that they mark you in at each checkpoint - cant remember what it said about timing chips but would guess they use them.
