The race started in the lovely grounds of Windelsham School off the A24 .
Striders had a great turn out with eighteen runners tacking a hilly four mile loop . The race left the grounds and took a farm track up hill away from the school to join with the south downs way which it followed for about a mile in a westerly direction then return for the finish on a billiard table smooth piece of grass. Well done to all that run on what was a very warm and muggy day .
The event had twp race options a 40 mile solo ultra or a team relay with 4x10 ish mile sections from DL in Worthing to DL in Brighton marina taking in a route along the south downs way.
We had two teams in the race.
It was an early start i picked Jo and Carla up went onto Neil where Karen kindly drive us all day , we arrived at DL for 7am start .
After waving the first wave off we headed for the check point for hand overs this routine continued all day until we reached Brighton , the course was very challenging with some large climbs in places and a warm day. On completion competitors could use the facilities at the club so we had a well earned swim and Jacuzzi. This was a lovely race well organised and low key with a lovely T shirt and a free burger.
