Here we go then...

Hopefully we now have all of our Romp runners on the leaderboard, and in something like the right order.

Big congratulations to John (Henfield Joggers) and Jo (Steyning AC) for posting the fastest Mens and Ladies times, and thank you to all for taking part.

Happy running. We’ll see you out there again soon.

See comments section for the unofficial Roundhill Romp 2020 route map.

This is not the usual Roundhill Romp: There is a slight change to the route around Wiston House; there will be no marshalls or First Aiders; there will be no BBQ!

It is simply an invite to local runners to complete the route over the course of the week 1st to 7th July, and send us their times via the comments below to get onto the virtual leaderboard.

Please abide by Government and England Athletics guidelines: maximum group size of 6, minimum distance between runners of 2 meters. Remember to let someone know where you are going, and when they should expect you back. Finally, there are steep downhill sections, so take care.

Route for the 2020 virtual event. There will be limited waymarkers on the course, so you will need this map. Good luck, and have fun!

This map is the section that deviates from the usual Romp route. You leave Mouse Lane on a footpath to the left (after the ‘Dangerous Bends’ sign). If you continued on the road you’d get to a closed gate before reaching Wiston House. Once you’ve left Mouse Lane. Turn right in the field and follow the path around the edge. You’ll see another footpath sign that will take you through the small woods. Exit those woods over a style. Then follow the path across the next small field, over a second style, and you’re on your way heading along past Wiston House.

Roundhill Romp course done by 3 Arunners members (Tim Critchfield Ian Puttock and Mark Cheeseman. Timed at 56mins 22 secs (Details attached). Thanks for arranging this virtual event - it was great

Wow! So many fab runners and photos!! πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

Great fun, ran with Worthing Harriers and our time was 46:43

3 Hove Hornets got completely lost trying to find the route even though we’ve all run it before! Still had a brilliant time and managed to keep to the 9.5k distance. Really appreciate how the marshalls help to keep us on track. With Martha Matthews and Charlotte Pridell. Thanks for organising!

Excellent idea... definitely up for it. (And the rest of my map reading skills!).

Some additional notes to help navigation...

Route 1 is 9.6km.

Route 2 is 11.4km.

Hi Joanna Claire, Rachel Burstow and Deb Shurvelli. You are all very welcome. Once you have run part 1, just drop us a note with your time and we’ll add you onto the leaderboard. If you use Strava, it’s on there as a segment, called ‘SAC Mayrathon Pt1’. Details of part 2 will be shared on Tuesday - then 3 and 4 the Tuesdays after that. Remember to let someone know where you’re headed, and when they should expect you home... and good luck!

Hello. Please add me in, great idea πŸ‘πŸƒ‍♀️
