I'm in. What's the course like? Undulating? Hilly?
It's only my 2nd half and I'm looking to improve on a 1:48 I did at the Richmond HM earlier this year.
500' climb - so gently undulating. Flat in my book. The inclines are enough to let you push without beating you down. Def a good pb course unless you injure yourself. https://us.v-cdn.net/6027274/uploads/forum/smilies/disappointed_smiley.gif' />
Anyone thinking of coming from London? And localites - would it be difficult to get a cab from Horsham station that time on a Sunday? I'm on a PB hunt...
Is the station open that time on a Sunday - or on Sunday full stop?
Oh I know - Google https://us.v-cdn.net/6027274/uploads/forum/smilies/smile_smiley.gif' />
Seems like the trains do run on Sundays, one an hr - £2 from Horsham to Christs Hospital. 2 mile warm up jog to the start.

Thanks for the tip - CH is clearly closer. Think I'll do my usual trick of just following people wearing lycra whenever they get off the train. As life advice, it's probably not a good idea, but works for half marathons early on Sunday mornings. Look forward to seeing you there!
Directions to Barns Green from Christ Hospital station. Head out of the station and go up the road. Turn right and follow the road all the way to the cross roads (this is part of the route). Turn left and follow the signs to Barns Green while trying not to get run over by all the Barns Green traffic! You just follow this road straight into the village.
If you don't want to go down the road into Barns Green follow the route signs into Itchingfield and then follw the track to Muntham House School and go into the village that way.
Good luck everyone. Hope the weather is better than last year.
