Due to an event at Burgess Hill Girls School, we will unfortunately have no access to the school for any sessions next week (Wednesday 1st March).

The 6:30pm and 7:00pm sessions will meet outside The Triangle Leisure Centre, to the side of the main entrance.

There will be no 7:30pm session as it is a Track night at Lewes Leisure Centre, meeting from 7:45pm if anyone would like to join.

As the evenings are now, sadly, starting to draw in, hi-viz clothing must be worn for all Wednesday evening sessions.

We only have a limited supply of hi-viz at the school so please remember that for your safety it is your responsibility to make sure that you have something available.  Runners without hi-viz will not be able to join the sessions.

Thanks in advance for your cooperation with this.

When using the car par at Burgess Hill School for Girls, please remember the following:
  • Please only park in the allotted spaces
  • Please do not to obstruct the minibus bays as access is needed
  • Please do not to park in front of any spaces if cones have been placed there
  • The car park is a one way system 
  • There is also a car park by the junior school, which is the car park closest to Silverdale Road
There are so many of us now on Wednesday evening that parking can be an issue.  Please ensure you leave plenty of time, consider car sharing or using alternative parking along Keymer Road, Silverdale Road, Ferndale Road or Oak Hall Park.
