Highdown Hike – organised by Worthing Striders

This is Worthing Striders annual run as part of the West Sussex Fun Run League (WSFRL).

The WSFRL is made up of 18 member clubs from around Sussex. Each club holds an annual event which is open to any runner regardless of whether they are affiliated to the league. Runners from member clubs are awarded points for participation as well as position. Clubs accrue points over the year and compete for the Norman Crook Memorial Trophy.

Our course is a 4.2 mile (approx) trail run over Highdown on a summer evening with members acting as volunteers for the event. Well over 500 runners finish the race. The surplus from the event is split between the club running costs and our charity of the year.

The Highdown Hike is on 3rd August 2022 starting at 7.30pm
