3 Forts Challenge 2016
The 1st May 2016 saw once again a successful 3 Forts Marathon run over the South Downs.
For once the weather was nigh on perfect, with light winds, not too hot and clear enough for the runners to enjoy the superb views which this route affords.
Out of more than 800 applicants, 358 completed the full marathon, and 314 finished the half-marathon.
It was clear from the many compliments which we received , that the competitors enjoyed the day, and will be returning again next year.
The proceeds from the run will go to the Ferring Country Centre, where people with learning difficulties are helped to develop work and social skills, and participate in local community projects.
