Cuckfield Walking Race on Bank Holiday (17th April 2017)

Cuckfield residents are limbering up for the annual Independent State of Cuckfield Walking Race and Children’s Easter Egg Hunt, which takes place on Easter Monday, 17th April 2017.

Don’t be caught out by the change in venue! This year the event starts and finishes at Haywards Heath Rugby Club on Whiteman’s Green (not the recreation ground).

The actual course is unchanged, going for approximately five miles via London Road, High Street, Ansty, Deaks Lane and back to the Rugby Club. 

There is an entry fee of £2 per person, and walkers must be at least 16 years old to take part. Entrants can register at the Rugby Club from 9.30am, and the first walker leaves at 10am.

There are trophies and medals to be won for the men’s and women’s handicap race, the fastest man and woman, and the fastest senior walker, which is open to those over 60 years of age. Plus there are the men’s and women’s team trophies, awarded to the fastest combined time achieved by a team of three walkers.

Walkers are also invited to wear fancy dress, and there are special prizes for the best outfits. 

While the walkers are out on the course, children are invited to join the annual Easter Egg Hunt, which starts around 10.30am. For more information, please contact Jim at the White Harte, or phone: 01444 413454, or email:
