Monday 2nd April 2018
Lewes Leisure Centre: Mountfield Road, Lewes, United Kingdom
The Lewes Athletic Club Easter Fun Runs event is held every Easter Monday (this year on 2 April 2018) as part of the West Sussex Fun Run League.
Held at the Lewes Athletic Club track at Wave Leisure Centre, there are three events: The toddlers' trot, an 800m race around the track for small children (aided by their parents and carers if need be), a junior 1 mile race (adults can run if they wish) and a 10km race (for over-15s only).
Entry fees are kept as low as possible to encourage runners of all abilities to take part.
Refreshments, changing and showers all available.
Lewes AC Easter Fun Runs on 2 April 2018
If you have pre-registered for this event, we will not be sending out numbers in advance of the race: you will need to go to the pre-registrated desks on the day to collect your number.
Here is some information for the day:
The fun runs are held at the Wave Leisure Centre on Mountfield Road, Lewes BN7 2XG.
Please use the track entrance, rather than the main reception of the leisure centre - there will be signs directing you to the back of the building, where you will find the entrance to the sports hall we will be using.
With nearly 1,000 runners, it makes life much easier for the reception team if they are not having to deal with us, as well as regular customers.
Refreshments, changing and showers are available and we will also provide additional toilets next to registration.
Please respect other users of the leisure centre - stay out of the swimming changing rooms, don't walk in spikes or muddy footwear inside the building (we say it every year but still...).
Athletes for the 1 mile and 10k may register on the day (although it is more expensive). Toddlers' trot entries are on the day only. Registration opens at 9am. Pre-registered athletes should pick up their number from registration before the race (numbers will not be sent out in advance).
9am Registration opens
10.30am Toddler's Trot
10.40am One mile race
11.00am 10km race
The Toddler's Trot is two laps around the track.
The 1 mile junior race starts on the track, takes a half-mile detour out through the Priory School grounds and Ham Lane, and finishes back on the track.
The 10k event (for those aged 15 or over) starts from the running track, leaves the track area, and finishes back at the running track. The course is multi-terrain and mainly traffic-free using tracks and footpaths to the south of Lewes. It is well-signed and marshalled. Some of the course is on private land, so please do not run it at other times of the year.
Parking is free but limited, so please car share, if at all possible. We have three car parks, all owned by the local college, on or just off Mountfield Road (but please do not park in the leisure centre).
We will have marshals to direct drivers but the car parks do fill up quickly and once they are full, you will have to find alternative parking, which can be difficult (and expensive) in Lewes.
Please respect local residents and please remember that the marshals are runners too and if the car parks are full when you arrive, it is not their fault!
The car parks will be locked at 3pm - after that time, you won't be able to get your car out. If you are planning to spend more time in Lewes, consider moving your car beforehand.
Instead of driving, why not come by train or bus?
The train station is a 5 or 6 minute walk from the leisure centre; the bus station is about a 10 to 15 minutes walk.
Thanks and we hope you have a great run!
