RISE has just told The Sussex Newspaper that they have confirmed that their 8K Undercliff Run, their 8K Undercliff Walk for Families and their 8K Undercliff Team Relay will be taking place again on Sunday 18th September 2011, starting and finishing in Saltdean. Interested?
In its 4th year, the 8K Undercliff Run starts at 10 am and is one of the main fundraising events for Brighton based charity RISE which provides services for women, children and young people affected by domestic abuse.
It is a unique, women only run along the bottom of the famous chalk cliffs from Saltdean to Brighton Marina and back, with the cliffs on one side and the sea on the other side. Women of all ages and from all walks of life gather at the start line, cheered on by family and friends, all with one common objective – to get out there and actively show support for RISE whilst raising valuable funds for the charity.
This run is also a good training ground for a range of 10K races later in the autumn, and the perfect distance to step up to if 5K has been your maximum distance covered so far. Needless to say that the cheers, atmosphere, scenery, sea air and sound of the crashing waves make this a pretty unique Sunday morning run!
Entry to the 8K Undercliff Run costs £15 (or £19 with a RISE t-shirt) which includes a goodie bag to the value of £20 with L’Oréal mascara or lip gloss, shampoo, conditioner, a Shock Absorber trolley coin and a range of other useful samples and goodies. Every runner receives a medal at the finish line too, just go to www.riseuk.org.uk to enter now. Runners must be minimum 15 years of age on race day. Alternatively you can make a donation of £50 to RISE which includes your entry fee.
If 8K sounds too far for you then just find 3 female friends or relatives and convince them to share the distance with you. You can enter the 8K Undercliff Team Relay at £50 per team, which means that 4 people run 2K each – there really is no excuse not to get involved!
The 8K Undercliff Walk starts at 9.30 am and costs £5 per person or £10 for a family of 2 adults and up to 5 kids.
The more ambitious runners have got the opportunity to enter the Charity Challenge which secures a place in the RISE 8K Undercliff Run, the Brighton Half Marathon 2012 and the Brighton Marathon 2012, please email
