Nestled in the South Downs, this beautiful and breathtaking race is just waiting for you to discover it... Join us for the Madehurst South Downs 10k & 5k and some racing perfection!
This is a Partner race
This means that we are working with a host Partner Organisation and provide timing and/or race management services for their event.
This race boasts stunning views as runners get to experience the undulating tracks, trails and roads around the picturesque village of Madehurst, nestling in the heart of the South Downs near Arundel. Much of the route is on private land and it is a rare opportunity to run this stunning and scenic route.
Please note, this will be a cupless event. Whilst we will provide water, runners will be responsible for providing their own camel packs/cups/bottles/receptacles for us to fill.
We are incredibly lucky to have such wonderful community support for this race; from the amazing volunteers who give up their free time to guide and cheer our runners at the top of their lungs, to those lovely folk running the cake stall to keep everyone in tip-top racing condition. This race is all about the wonderful spirit of the community that supports it and we can't wait for you to be part of it.
