Cuckfield's Walking Race is back - 2nd April 2018


The Independent State of Cuckfield’s annual Walking Race & Children’s Easter Egg Hunt takes place on Easter Monday 2nd April 2018.

IMPORTANT: The venue is changed from the Recreation Ground to HAYWARDS HEATH RUGBY CLUB at WHITEMANS GREEN.

The Walking Race starts and finishes by the rugby club’s clubhouse. The 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 you must be at least 16 years old to take part. Please 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, all the kids are invited to join the annual Easter Egg Hunt, which starts around 10.30am.
