With the weather being as random as anything going on, race planning for the weekends seems to be getting more and more short term. Well the good news is - Sunday is going to be great !! (in Sussex anyway)
So here's two things for you to get involved with on Sunday - because the weather forecast is perfect (at the moment):
1. Bewl 15 - a multi-terrain 15 mile run around Bewl Water in East Sussex. One of the most scenic races on the calendar - Entries on the day are accepted. Full information here: http://bit.ly/Bewl15-race-info-2012
Get over to Wadhurst, have a run - and there are childcare facilities laid on at the sportcentre / HQ - check the website for info. A nice chance to get out for the day !?!
2. Capital to Coast - charity bike ride.
Accepting entries on the day from Esher college, near Hampton Court - cycle down some great country lanes, including a descent of Box Hill - where the olympic road race will be going the other way - all the way down to the Kings Lawns on Hove Seafront.
There is also a circular route starting and finishing at the Kings Lawns for you Sussex based riders.
Fully supported it's a great ride with plenty of food stops and a final climb on the bike up Devils Dyke so you have the last few miles downhill to the sea.
This is going to be a great day with the weather forecast - so go here to find out more information: http://bit.ly/C2C-ride-info-2012
Otherwise, Saturday is one long party of the Hurstpierpoint St Lawrence Fair - now in it's 699th year - http://www.stlawrencefair.org.uk/ and also my Grandmas 99th - so Happy Birthday to her too !
I should add - there is a fun run at the Fair - http://www.stlawrencefair.org.uk/fun-run/ it's only a fiver and goes up Wolstonbury hill - so it's not easy !! It starts at 3:15 (the race) so make sure you're there on time to register.
Otherwise, enjoy summer on Sunday !!
See you soon,
