Sussex Wildlife Trust is looking for runners! Why not join us on Friday 31 May for an Ekiden Relay event on our beautiful nature reserve, to help raise funds for the new Discovery Centre?
Ekiden is a long-distance, multistage, relay race, based on a Japanese concept (the word ‘ekiden’ comes from stagecoach terminology). We are looking for teams of six runners to complete a half marathon between them, with each person running a different distance. Prizes offered for running clubs, community groups, as well as a corporate challenge. Before the main event, there will be a Junior Ekiden, with teams of five running 1km each.
During the evening, participants and spectators can enjoy some great bands, including Fabulous Red Diesel, The Friday Club with Stef Charles, Little Big Stone and Black Sheep. Plus a bar and barbecue.
