Goodwood Hill Climb 5 mile run

With Race to the Kings double marathon well and truly out of my legs now I’ve been looking around for some interesting Summer evening races.

The 53 second video above shows the iconic hill climb at the Goodwood motor racing circuit. I’ve now found out that there’s a 5 mile run that includes the hill on Monday August 7th at 7pm. This fits in perfectly, lets face it, I was sold as soon as they mentioned “hill” !! Naturally there may not be tens of thousands of fans cheering us on but it will be  a great night. The run isn’t on the race track but the grounds and the hill will be well worth the visit.

Organised by the Goodwood health club this annual event takes you through the glorious parkland of the estate and up the 1.2 mile hill with its 95 metre elevation. Winstons Wish (a charity for bereaved children) will benefit from the night and there’s also a food option if you wish to soak up the atmosphere even more.

£14 for a run along this historic route seems quite reasonable to me. We may not cover the 1.2 mile hill in 40 odd seconds but I’m looking forward to an evenings run with a difference. Come and join me ?? Click and Enter Here
