The date for the fifth edition of the Weald Challenge Trail Races for 2018 will be Sunday 10th June. Please note that this is two weeks later than our usual last Sunday of May date.
Online entries for the 2018 event will open on the 1st of October 2017. We will e-mail all past runners at the end of September 2017 to advise them that entries will open on the 1st October 2017 to ensure they do not miss out, as entries have sold out for the half marathon distance in all of the previous four years.
The Weald Challenge Trail Races follow the long distance paths of the Wealdway and the Vanguard Way. Both races start and finish in the village of Chiddingly and encompass the surrounding beauty of the Sussex countryside en route.
The courses are approximately 75% (half marathon) and 85% (ultra) off-road, and as the runners travel along the picturesque and undulating routes, they will take in a great variety of landscapes containing rolling hills, irregular shaped fields and ancient woodlands.
Runners participating in the 50km Ultra Trail race will experience the added bonus of the spectacular views from the open heathland of the Ashdown Forest.
