South Downs Way 100 Miles Relay

This year will see the 37th running of the South Downs Way 100 Miles Relay on Saturday 3rd June, 2023.  The club will pay the team entry fee of £120 to support this successful, very popular, annual event. 

Overall entries are restricted and each participating running club can only enter the same number of teams as the previous year.  The entry fee includes a donation towards the upkeep of the South Downs Way via the South Downs National Park Authority.

The non-runners for each leg of the relay will travel between legs in a minibus which has already been booked.  If you are interested in taking part and representing HJ in this relay, please email info@horshamjoggers.co.uk and you will be put in touch with the team leader for this event.

Horsham Twinning Visit to Lage

The Horsham Twinning Association has arranged a trip to Lage, which is the German town twinned with Horsham, travelling out on Thursday 11th May and returning on Monday 15th May 2023.  Each year, the dates of the visit coincide with traditional running events in Lage which are held on the 2nd weekend in May.  The events will include a marathon, half marathon, 10k and 5k and Nordic walking events at different times that weekend.  There are food and drink events on the same weekend.

Unfortunately, this weekend coincides with the Horsham 10k which requires some 100 or so of our members to support and volunteer, and which remains the club’s priority.  In future years, HJ will consider organising the Horsham 10k on a different weekend to avoid the clash and to enable more members to be available for both occasions. 

If you are interested in visiting Lage in May, please email info@horshamjoggers.co.uk.
