  • Results and post race award giving



Whilst we encourage the use of public transport to attend the event there will be car parks located within Hailsham. Please pay attention to any charges displayed. Please note that the car parks will be open to other users and therefore will be available on a first come first served basis.


If you wish to use the Vicarage Fields or Waitrose Car Parks, please note, these form part of the race route and therefore you will not be able to exit the car park until 12.30 when road closures have been lifted.


Water and First Aid

Water is available at the start and at the 2.5k point on the 10k and 5k routes. Please make sure you are appropriately hydrated for the conditions. We have qualified First Aid provided by EMATs who will be located at the start and finish and on the course.



Awards will be made as soon as we have the results.

The overall top 3 male and female finishers for each distance will be awarded trophies, as well as first in the following age group categories for the 10k only:

40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+

Age categories are based upon age at day of race.

Prizes will be awarded based on gun time with each participant only eligible to win one prize on the day of the event.

We look forward to seeing you and hope you enjoy the run.
