The run is strength and endurance focused. By using your body weight as resistance to push against uphill, you’ll gain leg strength. In addition, your aerobic fitness will improve and your metabolism will get a boost. Why not use this as part of your training plan if you are looking to run further, to increase leg strength and help prevent injury, or just as a sociable pre-breakfast jog.
It will be at a moderate pace, so it is suitable for all abilities and it also means you can enjoy the scenery! There are two options; Melissa will take the full 9 mile route. Sian will take the 4 mile route which will turn off to Ovingdean and follow a shorter route through the chalky hills back to the Marina.
