High Weald Virtual Challenge
Trail Running Sussex - Groombridge, East Sussex
The High Weald Challenge was an event that Trail Running Sussex organised for two years back in September 2015 and 2016, consisting of a half marathon and a 50km ultra, starting / finishing at Groombridge, East Sussex. Unfortunately we stopped putting on the event for a variety of reasons. Over the last few years many runners have asked whether we will be holding the High Weald Challenge event again as they really loved the route, which could be regarded as being one of the most scenic trail runs within the south of England, with an amazing variety of terrain and views, so hence why runners have asked for the event to be reinstated.
Due to the coronavirus many virtual races have been taking place, including the recent announcement for London Marathon's virtual race. We therefore thought that this would be a great opportunity to make runners aware of the two race routes by organising a virtual race, which however is slightly different to other virtual races, as our virtual race requires the runners to run along the official trail route of the High Weald Challenge Trail Races, so runners can actually experience the extremely scenic and varied routes of the High Weald Challenge Trail Races.
