Whats New For 2018 #4

The Mid Sussex Marathon Weekend is now all set to include 9 events and we are excited to announce the popular Haywards Heath 10 Mile will follow a new route.

The 2 lap format will continue to start on South Road but a new section of the route has been designed to take runners through Beech Hurst Gardens and Bolnore Village to avoid the busy Traunstein Way, providing a safer route for participants and volunteer marshals.
