West Sussex Fun Run League fun running in West Sussex...

Local Steyning AC members have been representing our town, and our country, at a number of big events this summer. The club caters for members of all levels – from beginners to those representing GB. This summer has seen a good number of local members taking on some quite absurd endurance events in swimming, cycling and running.

Channel swim: Sarah became the most recent Steyning AC member to swim from England to France this July. She started from Samphire Hoe beach (near Dover) at 1.30am and landed near to β€˜The Cap’ headland a mere 11 hours and 33 minutes later. The crossing is a minimum of 21 miles and, in reality, much further due to movement from currents.

Lake Geneva: Lawrence (our swim captain) was in the small boat to France supporting Sarah. A few weeks later he completed his own gruelling swim – crossing the 8 miles of Lake Geneva.

β€˜Race to the Kings’ Ultra Marathon: Steyning AC are not all about swimming – Vic and Mark completed this 53.4 mile run from Arundel to Winchester along the hills of the South Downs.

Jurassic Coast Ultra: Anthony and Camilla completed the 100km (62 mile) run along the spectacular Jurassic Coast. The World Heritage Site takes runners from a start at Poole Harbour, past Corfe Castle, Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door, Weymouth, Portland Bill, Chesil Beach, West Bay's cliffs (of TV's Broadchurch), before a finish line celebration in Bridport.

Scilly Isles Ottillo swim/run: Moyra (our multi-sport captain), Sue and Matt completed this unique event, where competitors swim between, and then run across, multiple islands. There are a total of 9 separate swims and runs, with a combined total distance of around 23 miles.

Long Course Weekend: Some members have also added cycling into the mix. Lydia (our run captain) and Dave completed the β€˜Long Course Weekend’ in Wales. Over three consecutive days they swam 2.4 miles, cycled 112 miles, and on the final day ran a marathon (26.2 miles).

European Championships: Simon and Anne had the honour of switching their Steyning AC kit for GB Tri-suits at the Weert (Holland) and Kazan (Russia) ETU Triathlon age group races, respectively. Anne returning home with a shiny silver medal.

The first lady was Sophie Coleman of Arena 80 AC, who completed in a time of 40 minutes and 42 seconds.

Steyning Athletic Club, like most clubs who are members of the fun run league, are always happy for new people to join their weekly training runs. Those near to Steyning can find out more about getting involved by making contact via the Steyning Athletic Club Facebook page, or Instagram.
