Endurancelife Coastal Trail Series - Sussex

Birling Gap, East Dean, East Sussex

Boat House, Birling Gap, East Dean, Eastbourne BN20 0AB, UK

Sat 17th April 2021

Organiser's Description

Where the land meets the sea, the results have produced one of the most iconic coastal landscapes of Britain – vast cliffs of brilliant white chalk. And Birling Gap is perfectly positioned for runners to explore this dramatic cliff-ridden coastline. These 4 routes lie to the eastern section of the South Downs National Park, but expect a few ups as you negotiate that rolling Down-land! Details to follow on event website.

The wind pushed and the wind pulled. I thoroughly enjoyed this event, but it was certainly like nothing I'd ever trained for. The wind stopped me in my tracks several times - I've heard anecdotes of 50mph gusts. All my practice runs along the route were in sunny conditions! A handful of jelly beans bouncing back from Eastbourne were very welcome, though the angle of the path was a bit of an ankle-breaker. 13.6 miles was quite enough for me given the circumstances, and there was no last minute sprint. A beautiful stretch of coastline and memorable day. Would definitely look at another Endurance Life event such as Dorset or Norfolk. Many thanks to the organisers and sponsors!
