On the 12th May a group of striders met at Portslade Community College and Sports Centre for an 11am start of the Portslade Hedgehoppers 5 miler.
There are changing facilities, showers and toilets available at the Sports Centre.
The weather was beautiful, around 16 degrees and gorgeous sunshine.
We had a short walk to the start. The first gradual incline was long and felt like it would never end!
This course is very hilly and quite tough but has fantastic scenery all around.
There were a couple of water stations along the way and marshals were encouraging.
The 3 mile mark was the most enjoyable part of the run for me with a nice, long flat stretch with stunning views to take in before the last few inclines.
At the end there was a nice selection of biscuits and soft drinks
