Summer Trail Runs

  • Trail runs are arranged for recreational running only on Wednesday evenings, from late March/early April until to mid-September, from different locations around the Chichester area.
  • Please note runs are free for members of the club whilst regular visitors are offered a reduced subscription (£15) for the Summer.
  • All runners must start between 4.30 to 6.30 pm - please no latecomers.
  • Organisers are briefed that they have a responsibility to stay until the last person is accounted for.
  • For newcomers trails are laid with a mix of arrows and blobs of flour. They follow tracks or paths, which can be rough, slippery and covered by obstacles. Most runs are between 6 and 8 miles and will normally involve hills! Some runs have a shorter option.
  • In case of problems the phone numbers of the run organiser is published by way of the club's weekly Newsletter.
  • If you are new to the club and would like someone to run with please post on the forum, facebook or e-mail the club to arrange something. Or better ask around at a training session.
