Lucky you Homer :)

Get yourself upto Tilgate Park. Theres a lovely lake to run round, and a few trails through the woods that are nice.

Also, just behind Three Bridges station there is the Worth Way that goes all the way to East Grinstead. Its a disused raliway line, now part of the national cycle network. Quite good to run on, and you wont get lost, as its literally out and back.

I'd join you, but my legs are officially trashed after maintaining my 100% record in the Brighton maraton yesterday :)

Dougie.
And beyond Tilgate Park there are trails in to Tilgate Forest, which is either side of the M23. More potential for getting lost there. Can also run in to the forest from the K2, where you could do a track session?

That's all very sound advice. If you stray beyond Tilgate Park be sure you'ge going to be able to find your way back. Worth Way is not brilliantly signposted.

If you're around Manor Royal I could meet you at lunchtime on Wednesday, late meetings permitting.

Got something to say?
