Bewl 15/5 on 7th July 2024

Every year, we organise the Bewl 5 & 15 mile races, voted as one of the top 10 best races in the UK by readers of Runner’s World, this year raising money for Air Ambulance Charity Kent Surrey Sussex

This stunning fifteen-mile race around Bewl Water is a challenging route over trails and quiet country lanes, but you won't be disappointed. It's a corker of a race filled with community spirit and heart. And, following last year's successful debut, the fantastic five-mile taster race will return to compliment the traditional fifteen-mile offering. There will be plenty to enjoy at the race village, including home made cakes and a glass of beer from Lakedown Brewing Co. (subject to availability) and the local brass band will play to welcome all runners home.


Wadhurst Runners is a small, friendly running club formed in 1999 to cater for the needs of local runners. Our members are a mix of those who wish to run competitively, as well as those who wish to simply make friends or maintain a level of fitness. From small beginnings the club has grown to over 125 members – enough to ensure that runners of all abilities are well represented.


We welcome runners of all ages and abilities

Belonging to a running club is motivating and confidence boosting and is a good way to meet new people. One worry for potential new runners is keeping up, but don't worry as we are inclusive and welcome runners of all ages and abilities.


Our members include social runners, where friendship is more important than speed as well as competitive runners who race in several Sussex running leagues. We also have a ‘Couch to 5k’ course, starting on 16 April 2024, led by an England Athletics accredited coach and enthusiastic volunteers.


If you’d like to come along and give the club a go, our regular runs are from the Uplands car park in Wadhurst, on Tuesdays at 7:15pm or Sundays at 9am. There is also a Wednesday morning group, who usually meets in Bedgebury at 9:30am.
