Run & Replenish in Rottingdean, Sunday 1st September

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Our Sunday runs are now beginning to buid in miles for our Amsterdam/Royal Park runners, who will be running 8miles this week.

Meanwhile our Bacchus Half Marathon runners are just a week away from race day, and we will be building on their confidence with a 13mile run (with a 10mile get out escape route for those who want it).

Both routes start out from Rottingdean (different location meeting points please read below) and will head up until you will overlook Lewes and Kingston. The longer route will head across and down via Telscombe before doing a short out and back on the seafront to make up the miles – or to give the 10milers their escape route!

Borrowing a little bit from our sister running brand, Have Your Cake & Run Club, we’ll also be holding out a carrot to our runners this week – replenish with a cream tea in the village at the end and get to know your running mates in Amsterdam or Bacchus.


Annual members, you have been provided with a special code so that you can book without paying. Those who have purchased event packages you can just come.

Stunning Sunday run, Sunday 28th April

Nothing boosts a mood than a Sunday run

Nothing boosts a mood than a Sunday run

Fancy a social run with expert coaching thrown in, plus a post run coffee this Sunday?

Whether you are just someone looking to run with a group, or you are part of our crew training for the Kamikaze, Heroes 10k or Tough Mudder/South Downs Half Marathon, don’t miss this weekend’s run as we begin to build distance.

There will be a four mile (just over) run and a 7mile (just over if you like, not if you don’t!) which will challenge you on the hills but reward you with stunning vistas, soaring endorphins…and some great technique skills as we coach (coax ?) you uphill.

Coffee or brekkie at Stanmer Park House afterwards for anyone who wants to stay around.

A scenic start to 2013.

It’s our first Sunday training session of 2013 and we’re ready to make dreams a reality. Whether it’s to improve general fitness, gain a pb, run your first marathon, enjoy a social run or lose some Christmas pounds, our sessions are a great way to meet your goals and keep you focused.

Half and full marathon training are both 10 miles this Sunday and it’s flat. For those who are training for the full marathon you will be encouraged to work on negative splits, running the second half at a slightly faster pace. If you learn to conserve your resources for the first part of the run, they’ll be available to you in the later stage as you pass the surviving shufflers.
