Hello SAC members.

Your Run Coaches and Leaders have got together to create a plan to support members with their running whilst there is no group training.

We will be utilising the Steyning AC Closed Facebook group - so we would encourage all runners to join up, even if just temporarily, so that you can be a part of our virtual running group.

We will be sharing...

1. Training plans aimed at both new runners, and seasoned runners, geared towards a good 10k in early July.

2. Videos of interval training session ideas.

3. A route for the week each week for members to run, by themselves, but then share their snaps and times.

4. Details of how to join a Steyning AC Strava run group to share times and achievements.

We look forward to getting back out and running together. Until then, weโ€™ll use the tools we have to support one another and stay connected

I ran the Stinger HM on Sunday. It has to be the best organised race I've ever entered! Thank you. ... See MoreSee Less

The Steyning Athletic Club โ€˜Steyning Stingerโ€™ Marathon and Half Marathon took place on Sunday 1st March 2020.

The tail end of Storm Jorge gifted runners some very muddy conditions across the route โ€“ which loops around the South Downs between Steyning, Storrington, Findon and Lancing โ€“ as well as some strong winds. Despite concerns earlier in the week, the majority of the race took place under blue skies.

A total of 222 runners completed the full Marathon route of 26.2 miles. This included local runner Ralph, aged 70, of Henfield Joggers, who was completing his 100th Marathon. Wearing race number โ€˜100โ€™ Ralph commented: โ€œThe organisation of the Steyning Stinger is always fantastic, with wonderful course marshals often freezing in the wet and cold and, of course, the hard work preparing breakfast. In essence, the main reasons I run the Stinger every year are the great people of Steyning AC and, of course, its nearness to Henfield!โ€

2020 was the 19th Steyning Stinger, and Ralph has run them all.

There were also 316 runners who completed the Half Marathon route. Among them was Beth, wearing number 18, of Steyning AC who was running her first half, and doing so on her 18th Birthday โ€“ making her the youngest runner in the race.

Staging the event requires 100 odd Adult Members of Steyning AC to volunteer their time, in addition to around 30 considerably less odd Junior Members, as well as support from local non-members, landowners, farmers, the Grammar School and Leisure Centre.

The race itself makes donations to the Steyning Downland Scheme and the South Downs National Park Authority.

I really enjoyed my first Stinger - a real challenge but great atmosphere, varied scenery and terrains which made it interesting, fantastic marshals and free mars bars slices! I still haven’t faced my trainers which are double bagged but will definitely enter again. Thankyou for all the hard work you put it in to make it a successful event.

Fantastic event. BIG thanks to all those that make it run smoothly on the day ๐Ÿ˜Š

Brilliantly organised event. The best running event I’ve ever done for value for money friendliness and the views !

Steyning A.C. March Run List.
Tuesdays, 7pm at Primary School.
Thursdays, 7pm at SAC Clubhouse.

Not long to go until the Steyning Stinger Marathon and Half Marathon on Sunday 1st March.

The event, organised by Steyning Athletic Club, sees around 500 runners tackle a challenging route across the South Downs between Steyning, Storrington, Findon and Lancing.

There are 100+ adult, and 30+ junior, Athletic Club members and locals involved in making this event happen, as well as support from local landowners, farmers, the Grammar School and use of facilities at the Leisure Centre.

Runners start and finish opposite the Grammar School Coach park. The only local roads that form part of the course are along Mouse Lane. Extra parking is made available at the School, although we can expect a little more traffic than is usual for a Sunday morning.

Contributions are made to the Steyning Downland Scheme and the South Downs National Park Authority

I am a member of Leamington C&AC - a sport insider. I have bought some stop watches direct from the factory which I am selling for ยฃ20 to benefit Myton Hospices. This is roughly half the normal price. They take 500 times which can be downloaded by USB. It is the same make and model as used by parkrun.
Please let your coaches and officials know and E-mail me if you would like more details. Ray.Morgan1@btinternet.com
