Details of runs
The Club's 10k Fun Run, plus the 1-mile and the 800m Toddler's Trot, take place each year on Easter Monday. This year it is on 17th April 2017.
- The Toddler's Trot is two laps around the track.
- The 1-mile juniors race starts on the track, takes a half-mile detour out through the Priory School grounds and Ham Lane, and finishes back on the track.
- The 10k event for those aged over 15 starts from the running track, leaves the track area, and then finishes back at the running track. The 10K is multi terrain and mainly traffic free using tracks and footpaths to the south of Lewes.
Entry fees are kept as low as possible to encourage runners of all abilities to take part. The runs are part of the West Sussex Fun Run League.
Free parking is available in three car parks on Mountfield Road - we will have car park marshals who will direct drivers to the three car parks, which will be filled in order. Please note that you cannot park in the Leisure Centre car park or along Mountfield Road. Be considerate to residents.
Look out for the signs and the marshals and please bear with them - they have a lot of cars to deal with.
The car parks will be locked soon after the event finishes (probably by 3pm latest), so please do not park there all day otherwise you may face disappointment when you return. There is parking elsewhere in Lewes...
Please note that parking is limited and we have 700+ runners on the day, so where possible, please share cars and if you can, travel by train: the station is a 7 minute (or 5 minute warm up) away. Turn left out of the station, left at the roundabout and walk to the end of the road - the leisure centre is on the right at the end.
Please use the following postcode for directions: BN7 2XG.
Registration opens at 9.15am
You can enter the 1 mile and 10k races on the day for an extra £1.50.
Registration is in the sports hall - please walk past the main entrance to the leisure centre and walk around the back of the building to the track - there will be arrows.
Those runners who have entered online should go to the pre-registration desk to collect their number. Safety pins will be available but bring your own if you can.
WSFRL club runners: your club rep will collect the numbers from the desk and distribute them to you - please find your reps as we won't be handing out individual numbers to club runners (the exception is Lewes AC runners, who should go to the WSFRL desk and collect their number - and pay!).
There will also be a desk to enter on the day for all the races. Cash or cheques only please.
Changing facilities and toilets
We are using the leisure centre with kind permission. Please respect other users. Runners can use the changing rooms and toilets on the dry side only - do not go into the swimming pool area. We have also provided toilets outside next to the track, so please use them. Do not wear muddy shoes or spikes anywhere in the leisure centre.
Tea, coffee, squash, cakes etc will be available in the sports hall. Bring cash!
