Angmering 10K Bluebell Trail Run

I'm planning on running this in a couple of weeks time, is anyone else going along ?

Comments

  • Sounds nice... is it?
  • I've not run it before but it was recommended by a friend...
  • Run it two years ago and going to try it again this year. Nice route through lovely woodland with patches of the best Bluebells in the area. Mostly over hard packed tracks. Sharp up hill in the last half mile. So leave energy for that.
  • Is it suitable for road shoes or should I wear trail shoes?
  • I will be there image
  • I'd say wear trail shoes as from memory I think there are a few muddy paths stretches. Weather now is drying things out lovely at the moment? So road shoes with a bit of a grip on the sole may well be fine especially on the hard tracks?

  • Thanks, see you there
  • Ran the course yesterday morning in a pair of standard running shoes and it was fine. Virtually all of it is dry now and the bits that are slightly muddy you can run around. The bluebells are coming out too which is good - two weeks earlier than normal. See you all next Sunday.
  • look forward to it I will be wearing Thrift Green Trotters vest, make your selves known , running is all about meeting like minded people.

  • Looking forward to it ! Just been looking at an os map of the area to see what the hills are like.... Doesn't look too bad until the finish !

  • Hi Derek, sounds like we run the same routes image and yes, I was up there in the snow image
  • Hello all ...

    Yep, I'll be towards the rear of the field on Sunday next - looking forward to it - Is the last uphill on-'road'? (I think it's called Selden Lane - ending near The Fox pub (excellent real ales there by the way ....) .

    Using this race as a bit of a gauge as to how I'll do in The Three Forts half in 3 weeks time.

    Good luck, Lisa - I remember you ran well at the Steyning Stinger - I hope your training has been going well since!

    ... and everyone else, have a grea trun through sunny, dry, Angmering on Sunday

  • Just to let you know the numbers, race details and maps were posted yesterday with a first class stamp so you should hopefully get them today or tomorrow.
    The first 1km is downhill, 2-3km are a gradual climb to the top of Monarchs Way (nothing too severe) then its flat to 5.5km, downhill to 7km then mainly flat to 9km with a couple of small bumps. Whilst the hill at the end seems daunting as you approach it, it is only about 200m long so before you know it it's over! Water will be at 4.3km and unless there's a heatwave this will be the only one on the course. I'll keep you updated if there's anything of note.

  • Thanks Mick, received mine this morning

  • I received my race pack today too - looking forward to Sunday! Fingers crossed for the weather.
  • Received my race number yesterday. Really looking forward to it image
  • Morning Everyone,

    I'm really keen to do this race on Sunday - are there any spaces left?

  • Hi Caroline,

     I think you can enter on the day, cost is £16.

  • Yes, entries on the day are available but they're £16 I'm afraid. Mind you the goody bag is worth almost that!!
  • Hi Mick, I've not received my race numbers in the post yet. Hopefully they will arrive today or tomorrow, but if not will numbers be available on the day? Thanks.
  • Chris. If you entered after last Saturday we held onto your numbers just in case they got held up in the post. You can collect them from registration in the marquee at the pub. Race details and maps are on the event page. I've just put some early warning notices up in the park and the bluebells are quite impressive - I think you'll enjoy it. Mick
  • Mick, thank you for the reply here and the email. Fingers crossed for some good weekend weather!
  • Well done and thanks for a great run, the hill was a killer but I forgive you for it, I will be back next year and I will be 60 and going for 40 mins (weather permitting). On the downside, the results in my view could have been done quicker whilst everyone was still there BUT they were on the web by 20:00hrs so Hey ho. again Thanks

  • Mick, Thank you for a great race image I'm looking forward to this again next year.

    The scenery is beautiful and the last hill, although a bit of a killer was the last hill and at the top you know you are just around the corner from the finish !
