Route information
Terrain: Trail

The Bates Green Gallop takes runners along a beautiful trail course in East Sussex. Runners will take on as many laps of the 3.5 mile course within 6 hours as they can. Entrants will be running through the gorgeous Sussex countryside through woods, across fields and along the River Cuckmere.
Due to the trail nature of the course, there will be some uneven sections on the course so please look out for tree roots and low branches.
If you're looking to run the distance of a marathon, you will need to run 8 laps of this course.
You'll be able to check into the aid station after every lap to fuel or rest up for the next leg of your race.
*The route is subject to change.

It was my first time and I loved the course and the concept. Lovely and relaxed and a great way to challenge yourself or to get confidence building up your mileage. Will definitely be back.

Very well organised event, catering for all abilities. Cross country trail on a mixture of private land and public paths. The course is twisty in places, but very clearly waymarked and well marshalled. Some gates on the private land had been removed from their hinges to make the route easier. There were a couple of stiles on each lap, but far fewer than other cross country trails nearby, particularly once you got the longer distances.
