Friston Forest charity trail runs

12 Aug 2018

The Friston Forest charity trail runs.  Sunday 12th August 2018.  SUMMER EDITION

(We are planning to come back in November for a Winter edition running the course in reverse.)

TRA permit number:  TBC

We have ditched the metric and gone imperial, so remember the distance is in miles!  New route for 2018

98% off road.  The usual lung busting, heart rate rising climbs! 

The Adder = 2 laps = 10 miles.

The Friston Five = 1 lap = 5 miles.

Our prices vary, so the earlier you enter, the cheaper it is! 

The Adder 10 miler is a mass start at 09:00 hours. https://32gi.co.uk/ will help keep you going over the two laps.

The Friston Five miler is more relaxed and you can start at anytime from you like from 09:05 to 09:20 (On the morning we will do a mass start at 0905, but if you don't want to run with the pack or arriving late, just let us know when you want to set off so that we start timing you.  As importantly, please let us know when you are back!) 

Cut off time is 12.00 noon (i.e. pub opening time!)

Both Walkers and Dog-Runners are welcome to join in the 5 mile event.

Please pick up your race number from registration on the morning.  We will be over by the BBQ area from 8(ish) with registration opening from 08.00 to 08.50.  Providing we don't sell out in advance like in 2016, there will be half a dozen on the day entries available for either distance on a 1st come, 1st served basis.

We advise you to download the mapmyrun.com app and have a nice stroll around in the weeks before the event.  The route is on this app and is available to download and follow.  It is also on strava and tomtom maps (I'll post the links here nearer the time.)

A route map and narrative will be on our Facebook & website pages and a few paper copies will be available on race morning.  Both routes are on a clockwise loop.

Important note: Due to no vehicular access, there is no water station on the course. You will be provided with a water bottle at registration, please take it with you and do not discard the bottle or any gel wrappers etc in the forest or you’ll be DQd!  There will be water available at the end of lap 1 for the 10 mile runners and further water back in the car-park for finishers (it is a beast of a hill to lug water up to the start, so any help with this will be greatfully received!) 

The run starts and finishes at the top of the slope that joins the South Downs Way, which maybe slippery so take care.  Plus your running in woodlands, so expect tree roots, dogs, walkers, horses, mountainbikes and if your lucky you may spot an Adder warming up in the sunshine.

Finish: Congratulations, you made it! Stretch, cool down and relax.

Results and Prizes: 1st, 2nd, 3rd for fastest open class males and females over Adder distance.  1st Male & Female for the 5.

Every finisher gets a medal.

(If you find the going too hard in the Adder, you can drop down to the 5 after lap one and still get a time and a medal, but you will not be eligible for a trophy.)

Unfortunately we are unable to accept wheelchair entries due to some of the off-road terrain being very narrow.

Toilets block located in the car-park. 

Professional First Aid providers will be in attendance.

£1 per entry will be donated to http://www.alzheimersresearchuk.org/donate-to-us.aspx  The rest goes to cover our costs, insurance etc and the pub bar-tab bill for the marshals.

Any last minute updates will be posted to our Facebook page.
