TRAIL RUN with Neil: South Downs loop from Amberley station (8 miles/250m)

Join us for a glorious 8-mile trail run in the South Downs. Meeting at Amberley station at 11am (a train from London Victoria and Clapham Junction arrives just before), the run starts at just above sea level before climbing to nearly 200m within the first 1.5 miles. Then it continues along the ridge-top with (weather permitting) fantastic views to the north across West Sussex. After about 3 miles we turn sharply to the right and begin our long descent, hopefully with views out to the English Channel and the nearby Arundel castle. Most of the run is on chalk/grassy paths with a little on wider farm tracks, and the last mile or so on a quiet country lane. We should be back by 1pm in time for lunch and/or a drink at the welcoming Bridge Inn beside the River Arun. Will be running at a comfortable pace (around 10 to 12-minute miles), walking the steep bits, stopping to regroup, take photos etc. In the afternoon I’ll be walking on to Arundel and you’re welcome to join me (or you can catch the train straight back from Amberley). It’s an easy 4 to 5 mile walk taking about an hour and a half, mainly along the scenic banks of the meandering River Arun. Will have a little wander through the medieval streets of Arundel before catching a train home. Gear: Please come fully equipped: trail running shoes, trail running backpack, waterproofs, change of clothes in a dry bag, warm layers, water, snacks, and electrolytes. Start: We will start our run at 11am from Amberley Station. Your event organiser, will meet you there. Covid 19: Group sizes are limited to 6 people at this stage. Please comply with government guidance on social distancing and do not attend the runs if you are experiencing corona symptoms or have been in contact with a corona positive person in the 14 days prior to the run. Looking forward to running with you! Neil ..... A note about the Outdoor Adventure Club: The OAC is a 'not for profit' organization under the supervision of the government appointed CIC Regulator.
