5km and 10km loop
Starting at the Graffham Recreation Ground, runners head South on the grass then onto a hard compacted footpath, up a gentle incline passing Graffham Infant School and the church. The more adventurous may want to head straight up the Downs (maybe next years’ race?) but we will be turning through the West Gate onto the long tarmac drive down to Seaford College. Here you will have fantastic views over the stud farms towards Petworth.
On reaching Seaford College we will turn left, through Wallace Square crossing a short patch of compacted flint before joining a track that takes you to the top of Norwood Lane and shortly back onto smooth tarmac. Beautiful Beech and Oak trees line both sides of this road. Where the road turns away we will join the bridleway, heading straight back towards Graffham. A small dip in the path means the last stretch is a gentle incline before you re-appear on the Recreation Ground to the cheers and adulation of the supporters as you sprint (or shuffle) towards the finish line.
Congratulations! you’ve just run 5km… unless you want to do another lap ???
