ABOUT YOUR RUN LEADER

Run Leaders for the Maverick Run Project are the people who make our social runs possible. They know their local area better than we do so they go out and find routes that they think you'll enjoy. Below is the information about the Run Leader for this particular social run.

Vicki Balfour

Hello, I'm Vicki and am based in Hove, East Sussex.

Running is my passion and what I do in any spare time that I have! I started trail running back in 2017 as was training for Brighton Marathon and particularly last year I found I spent more and more time on the trails.

Having run the SDW50 in April, it's given me the impetus to attempt a trail 100 miler in 2022 and then in 2023 will be setting my own personal challenge of running Lands End to John o'Groats via a trail route with the plan of 40 miles a day for 4 weeks - anyone would be welcome to join and keep me company!

When I'm not doing long training runs on the Downs, you'll still find me out on the downs running/walking with my dog. On the rare occasion, I'm not running, you'll find me at a trade show in London as I work for an events company in Brighton. Whilst doing all of this, I also am a run coach for my local gym and run an intervals session along the seafront once a week.

Running is absolutely what I love (I can quite happily talk about running all day). To me it's all about community, should always be social and is inclusive to absolutely everyone. I can't wait to meet you all and share these amazing trails on our doorstep.

RUN INFORMATION

 

Route 1

Distance: 8.8km
what3words: ///pretty.folds.melt

Start at Hove Park, this route is half trail, half gravel path. We'll start at what the locals call 'The Copse' and head up a nice bit of sheltered woodland and head up towards Devils Dyke. Weather dependent keep an eye out for some sea vies.

 

Route 2

Distance: 10.6km
what3words: ///count.send.pits

Meeting at Sunblest Car Park, this route is 99% trail with a very small proportion on a chalky path. It will take in the sights of East Brighton and finish on the infamous 'Snake'. 

 

Route 3

Distance: 11.8km
what3words: ///foreheards.hires.funny

Start and finish at the Hangleton Manor pub, this route is very much half up / half down (what goes up always comes down). It will be on mixed terrain, some grass, some chalky flint path. We will quite likely see some of the local cows on this route and on a wet day there will be lots of puddles.
