Organiser's Description

The Route:

This is a spectacular run that takes you across the springy grass above the iconic white chalk cliff tops with their precipitous drop into the sea below. It follows winding trails through the lush woodland at Friston Forest; the Seven Sisters Country park; along the banks of the meandering Cuckmere River and down onto the shingle beach at Cuckmere Haven.

There's an enjoyable stretch of the 100-mile South Downs Way. This is a great route at any time of year, from summer when the 500 acres of open chalk grassland the area are rich with butterflies and downland flowers to winter when the waves crash on the rocks below.

Keep an eye out for nearby sites of archaeological interest, like Belle Tout Neolithic enclosure.

The run was great fun and I really had to push myself. The guys taking us and the group who ran were so much fun and kept it all light and enjoyable. The only thing I would say is that the last three miles I kind of had to find my own way back as the group kind of pushed on. Not a problem but might cause new runners so issues, Thanks for a great mornings running

This review is by me Perry Stock and is a little biased because I organised the route and the event. However, I would just like to say it was an amazing day, the route was fantastic and the weather that complemented the day was beautiful. It was a large group and we had a great time, running, hiking, talks about trail running, talking about other stuff, taking pictures and generally having a lovely time. I give 5 stars to all of the people that turned up and made this a success. Thank you all. ;P
