Sat 28th Marathon Trail £45-50 Beachy Head Marathon. An ever present event in the marathon calendar. Popular event with a 10 hour time limit and hot food afterwards.

Sun 29th 10K MT £17 Crawley 10K. The course is undulating and uses the paths, footpaths, trails and road in and around Tillgate Park. The start and finish are both located on the track at the K2 stadium
Sun 29th Half Marathon MT £29 River Thames Half Marathon. A fast and flat course which is mostly traffic-free. Basically it is an out and back from Walton bridge to Hampton Court and back, but with an annoying loop at the end (of ~2.5 miles) where you pass through the start/finish area to complete the loop… There is a 2hour 45min cut off time
