If you’re trying out a new fitness regime why not set your sights on doing the renowned Lindfield Village Run? Whether you’re a fitness fanatic who fancies the full 10k or a fun runner with your eye on the family friendly 5k - everyone is welcome.
The event is a traditional cross-country run through the countryside around the village. This year it takes place on Bank Holiday Monday 28th May and is sponsored by our hugely supportive local businesses Potential Personal Training and Six Physio, who will both be providing free post-run massages.
Runner numbers will be limited this year, with the 5k and 10k runs having different start times on the morning. Any children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult throughout the course and canine participants are welcome – on leads and with their owners of course!
There are a few changes this year. For the first time electronic timing will be used – which organisers hope will make results quicker and easier to publish. This will mean that registrations on the day will have to close a clear 30 mins before the start of the run – so there will be a strict 10am cut off – but registration will be open from 8.30am to try to compensate. There has also been a change made to the 10k route to try to limit the exposure runners will have to oncoming road traffic around the Copyhold Lane junction of High Beech Lane. See the website for details.
The start and finish will be at Hickmans Lane Playing Fields as ever, and this year on-site refreshments will be provided by Lindfield’s own Somers Tea Rooms. It is a real community event whether you are running or cheering on a friend or relative.
If you want to do more than cheering on and are happy to spend an hour or two marshalling on the day - please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Everyone involved is a volunteer; all the money raised goes to the upkeep of King Edward Hall, a registered charity. Entry prices are £7 for the 5k and £15 for the 10k and booking is now open now via the website: www.kingedwardhall.org.uk
