Entries are now open for Seaford Striders’ annual festive 10-mile charity race, the Mince Pie 10, which this year will take place on Sunday 10 December.

The challenging, chip-timed race route takes in the beautiful countryside around Telscombe and Saltdean in East Sussex, starting and finishing at Peacehaven Leisure Centre.

The mixed-terrain challenge continues to go from strength-to-strength and places get snapped up well before race day. Early registration is highly recommended!

Every year the Mince Pie 10 raises funds for a local charity, with Headway East Sussex the 2017 beneficiary. The Newick-based organisation offers rehabilitation and support to people following brain injuries, and supports families and carers.

As usual, runners are welcome to take part in fancy dress, and Sussex Sport Photography will be on hand to capture all participants. A thank you goes to race sponsor and local estate agent David Jordan – do keep an eye out for David on the start line!

Enthusiastic marshals are guaranteed, and there will be plenty of water stations out on the course. A medal, goody bag and – naturally – a mince pie will await all finishers, alongside spot prizes and a raffle.

Online entry is available now via Nice-Work, and further details, including a course map, are available on the dedicated race page.
