Enter the Steyning Stinger Half or Full


A small blog about a big race
For the past five years we have been providing race coverage for the Steyning Stinger and as it's one of our favourite races it seems only sensible to let you know that it is now open for this years entries. It's a small race as numbers go (no 10,000 strong crush here!) but it's a big race in every other sense of the word, so don't miss out. Click here to go to the race website or read a little bit more here...








If you're a regular reader of this blog you're probably a runner. You might do the occasional 10k or Half marathon, or marathon. You might perhaps be in training for the London Marathon or Brighton Marathon in late April or you did the Beachy Head Marathon and fancy something similar-ish ? well, even if you're not *that* kind of runner then the Steyning Stinger might be the half marathon (or full marathon) for you. Read on to find out more...

Where and When ?

The Steyning Stinger now in it's 8th year is on March the 7th. Located near the south coast just north of worthing in the village of Steyning, the race Headquarters is at the local school (see map below). Showers, bags storage and an apres race Breakfast await for everyone completing either race distance, as well as free race photos to download from online later.

The race itself is a challenging yet friendly off road half marathon or full marathon, up over the fantastic south downs with views in all directions (on a clear day!). There is a full race route mapped out on the race website.
There is also usually a very strong contingent of runners from london looking to get out on a early spring/late winters morning to beat the blues, which always seems like a good idea.


There are only 250 places in the Half Marathon and 200 places in the full marathon - with no entries on the day, last year the Half was almost sold out completely so don't hang around - entry forms are on the website here
Don't read my word for it - the runners world rating stats say it all - since it began - 96% overall score and 96% would do it again - go and have a read what the runners have said here


So - get your entry in soon as it's a popular race and we wouldn't want you to miss out !

Have a great weekend and perhaps we would have seen you out and about ? Check the gallery and have a look..
