Sign up for the Clanfield Challenge 2018

The New Year resolutions, made in the cold grim days of January, are but a faded memory for most of us, but now we all have the opportunity to take up a new challenge – the Clanfield Challenge 2018.

Book your place now for the Clanfield Challenge taking place on Sunday 20 May 2018.  This is your chance to sign up for an outstanding run in the stunningly beautiful hills of the South Downs and earn a coveted race medal.  The Challenge has been sold out for the past two years, so avoid last minute disappointment and book your place amongst the 1,000 places on offer.

The Clanfield Challenge, is a run, jog or walk for all ages and abilities from the super-fit to those of us who just try our best and keep plodding on.  It is open to all ages, from tiny tots racing around a 1K track (possibly holding on to a guiding hand?) to the junior athletes who will tackle the 2K trail, both taking place within South Lane Meadow in Clanfield. 

The 5k and 12K trails are for teenagers, adults and veterans who are looking forward to testing themselves with a longer trail that takes them into the South Downs National Park: and for the first time, there is a 20K trail being offered for those who are prepared for the exhilarating run to the top of Butser Hill, the highest point of the South Downs.

Not quite ready for the run?  Don’t worry help is at hand.  The Clanfield Joggers are putting on a Couch to 5K with a goal of taking you from no exercise to running 5k in nine weeks, and along the way having fun and socialising.  Contact them today for more information.

All profits generated by the Clanfield Challenge will be used to fund local community projects so why not bid for some funding now for your local group?

Want to take part but not run?  How about volunteering to help the day go smoothly – there are plenty of jobs to do and you will receive a warm welcome from the team.

There are still a few sponsorship opportunities available to advertise your business to the 1,000 runners and the host of supporting crowds that will flock to South Lane Meadow in Clanfield.

Refreshments, music, local businesses and community organisations will be in South Lane Meadow to ensure that everyone has a good time. 

Book your place now for the Clanfield Challenge 2018 – are you ready to run?
