We meet at Bishopstone because the Seaford Half Marathon is on Sunday 7th June and the Juniors man the water station, which is based very near to the church.

Any Juniors or mums and dads who would like to help on Sunday 7th June will be most welcome. Please meet at 8.30am at Bishopstone Church. Your services will only be required until 9.30am. Please note this is only 1 hour!

10 June Tidemills Car Park, on Main Road

24 June Tidemills Car Park OR Sailing Club at 7pm with Seniors (see below)

On Wednesday, 24 June the 2nd Summer Solstice run will be organised along the prom.  Last year lots of adults and juniors participated.  The run which is approximately 4K starts at the Sailing Club, goes along to the Martello Tower and then returns along the prom to the Sailing Club.

So all you juniors who think you can run 4K, meet at the Sailing Club at 7pm, rather than Tidemills at 6pm – I suggest you do not try to do both meetings.  After the race the Sailing Club will be open for mums and dads and junior runners to purchase refreshments.
