A small, friendly running club
Wadhurst Runners is a small, friendly running club, formed in 1999 to cater for the needs of local runners. We welcome as members those who wish to run competitively – as well as those who wish simply to maintain a level of fitness. From small beginnings the club has grown to just over 130 members and rising – enough to ensure that runners of all standards and both sexes are well represented.
A club for all runners
Many of our runners have their own personal targets. Some simply want to maintain a basic level of fitness, others are looking to complete their first race or improve their personal best in a range of events such as the London Marathon. Some of our more experienced runners look to run in the friendly, but competitive, Sussex Grand Prix series of races. In addition, of course, members also enjoy and benefit from the camaraderie of running with others on our weekly training runs.
The Sussex Grand Prix
The Club is represented in the Sussex Grand Prix Series of races, covering distances from 5 kilometers up to 20 miles. The club has participated with distinction in the series and we have a proud record of achievement usually finishing well in the year end league table.
We are especially proud of our achievement of the near impossible for a small club to win the Steve Ovett Sussex Grand Prix Championship back-to-back for both the 2012 and 2013 seasons and being only the fourth club ever to do so.
