Whether you are new to running or an experienced FitBitcher, nothing beats an early summer run on the Downs on a Sunday morning.
Admittedly, where there are the Downs there are hills but with so much more to look at you don’t notice them as much. Besides, the post-Sunday morning endorphins that last way in to Monday make up for it all.
There will be three distances to choose from this week so please read the blog carefully, and comment where you are going to meet us. If you are running late for a meeting place, or change your mind about coming last-minute please TEXT us (don’t call, I’ll be running!). If we don’t hear from you, and you are not at the designated meeting place we won’t wait.
4mile route – a steady uphill, a beautiful down hill with a final sting in the tail back to your car. Meet the second car park on Devil’s Dyke Road at 8.40am
5mile route – same as above with more of the uphill to start. Meet the FIRST car park on Devil’s Dyke Road, just after the road forks (the right is Saddlescombe Road) at 8.30am
8mile route – This will be an out and back route with quite a few hills but a lovely downhill section for those who want to work on their speed and negative split. Er, or those who just want to catch up in the latter half of the run on what’s going on in Homelands. Meet the FIRST car park on Devil’s Dyke Road at 8.30am.
Parking is free. Where is Devil’s Dyke Road? Here…http://g.co/maps/rwrfs
