We’re proud to introduce the Bates Green Gallop, our first proper trail run.

Bates Green Farm is in Arlington, near Hailsham in East Sussex, and is home to the well known Bluebell Walk.

This run takes you through some beautiful sussex countryside, through woods, across fields and alongside the River Cuckmere.

Visit our aid station at the end of each lap, do as many 3.84 mile laps as you want in 6 hours. Let us know when you have finished and we’ll write down your time and distance, and give you your bespoke medal. If you start your last lap before 3pm, you can finish it.

Free tea, coffee and a bite to eat. Of course, being summer, prepare for heat and be prepared to carry water if you need it more frequently than every lap.

As with most of our events, it is a low key, friendly affair limited to just 100 runners.
