Run the Seasons Autumn Race 2024

Our first Run the Seasons Race of our new series celebrates all things Autumn.

There are three distances, 10km, 10 miles, and a new 5km run. All runs are undulating and have some tough sections, but the locations are second to none. The majority of the courses are on bridleways, footpaths, the Serpent Trail or Sussex Diamond Way, and include sections running through the stunning grounds of Cowdray Estate.

These are proper trail runs, so be prepared for uphill and downhill sections, gravel, sand, and muddy terrains, but all of which are manageable for the majority of runners. The 10km course heads gradually uphill towards Bexley Hill, through some ancient and thick woodland before returning on a different route exposing the golden autumnal colours on the South Downs. The 10 mile course initially follows the same route as the 10km run and then diverts at the Bexley Hill mast. We then pick up the Serpent Trail through Verdley Wood towards Henley before eventually returning with a tough climb back up to Bexley Hill.

This event also coincides with Cowdray Farm Shop’s Apple Day , so come and join us after your run to have a go at pressing your own apple juice, enjoy some live music and local suppliers, and get the chance to sample delicious appley themed treats.

Overall winners are decided on a points system based on their finishing position. The series finale will be an evening run followed by a BBQ on the lawns. Each event will have a unique medal, that can be built into an interlocking 4-piece set.

Sign up here and enjoy running through the beautiful Sussex countryside this autumn.
