New courses starting this week

Whether you are a beginner, someone returning to running or one of our regulars, don’t miss our course to 10k or 10miles training for the truly spectacular BlueBell Trail Race, April 21st.

This course is a 12 week one starting at four miles for both groups but will build gradually, particularly in the 10k group aimed at beginners and beg-intermediates.

Our 10mile training group will be developing speed particularly on longer runs so are more suited for intermediate runners and to those able to run at a certain pace (unsure if this will be suitable for you? Give us a call).

WE start TONIGHT but if you miss this session, you are free to join at any time although if you are a beginner then do try to come this Sunday or next week.

Details about courses and booking are here. Questions? Email info@fitbitchbootcamp.com or call Rachael 07855 742195.

Don’t let your nerves get in the way of you missing these awe-inspiring, endorphin boosting…and body changing runs!


Beginner Runners & Beyond – the new season

Don’t miss our next beginners to 10 package for the Brooks 10k starting Weds 24th September

Signed up for the Brighton marathon – don’t miss the  start of our training particularly if you are a beginner – 29th October

If you are already part of our running community, you will have seen all our pictures from our recent race at the Firle Half Marathon and 10k last weekend.

It was a fantastic day of incredible achievements from all. Over a third of our runners  started as beginners, so huge congratulations to Suzy Curd on her first ever half marathon (and a huuugely hilly one!) and our first time 10k runners (or first for a while!) Amy, Kathryn, Penny and Sara who only joined us just a little over eight weeks ago.

And to Karen Napleton who was the third fastest female and Suzanne Ford who showed amazing grit and determination. So many runners to mention but you were all fab!

If you have been inspired by them, or run in Firle and are now looking for your next challenge – or just a race to help you maintain your newfound running mojo, here are our next upcoming dates for 2012 and beyond (the first date indicates the race date – some tbc as they are not released yet, and the second when training starts).

If you would like to join us, you can come to any session for £5 drop in or book a package of runs (currently only the Brooks 10k package is available for booking online and our annual membership – new prices will be released for remaining packages).

The Endorphin High Session, Weds 5th Sept

get your endorphin fix for the week!

So, we’re all back from holiday and the kids are about to go back to school. You may have the blues but you won’t after this Wednesday’s training session.

We’ll be working on power and pace but don’t worry if you are a beginner, as you will all be put in a group suitable for your level and training.

This session is focused on helping you to improve your speed, which involves more muscle recruitment (more results on your bum – yay!) and means you will burn more calories for longer afterwards (yay again! One way of working off the holiday binge season). And the off shoot of all of this? An endorphin high that will last until the weekend.

If you are training for Garda, you should all be attending these sessions now (or our Sunday’s). And for our Firle runners, this is our last session before race day on Sunday so this will leave you feeling raring to go.

If you have not been to run club before, please come along but arrive 5-10mins early so you can fill out the necessary paperwork.

Location: the lawns adjacent to Hove Street, a minute’s walk from the King Alfred Centre (you can park in King Alfred Centre)

New route for Sunday 2nd Sept –

Look out for the blackberries on the route!

Due to the air show at Shoreham we have changed the route for this Sunday which will now start from Rottingdean.

OUr beginners training for Rise will still get a flat route, which will cover some of the route that they will be doing on race day so it is a chance to get accustomed to the terrain (flat) and the variable weather conditions (windy).

For the rest of our Firle and Garda crew, there now will be a few hills but nothing like you are used to on these Sunday runs.

Once we reach Telscombe Cliffs we will be going inland and turning at TElscombe church (where the five mile route will retrace its steps back to the start) and heading towards the river (the 8 mile route will turn just before this).

For the longer route we will follow the river before turning to run through Southease, over the downs to Saltdean before rejoining the path at sea level.

For a final one mile finish we will be putting on the speed to finish past Rottingdean followed by a walk back and stretch down.


Location: Rottingdean car park in front of Tesco (parking is free until 9am, thereafter bring money)

Time: 8.30am

Drop in: £5
