Get ready for the Barns Green Half Marathon and NEW 10k!

Barns Green

This year will see the 34th running of the Barns Green Half Marathon and for the first time in its history, the introduction of an additional race, the Barns Green 10k. The Barns Green Half Marathon and 10km races will both take place, from the village, on closed roads on Sunday 25th September 2016.

The Half Marathon will start at 10am and the 10k race at 10.20am. The event is organised and run entirely by volunteers from in and around the village.

Since the Barns Green Half Marathon began in 1982, this unique village event has raised a huge amount of money for charity. Last year almost 1500 runners registered for the race which follows a route through the lanes of Barns Green, Itchingfield, Christ’s Hospital and close to Southwater through some of the most scenic countryside in West Sussex. Almost £10,000 was raised by the 2015 race and all this money has been distributed to various charities as well as groups, youth and sports clubs in and around the village who help with the staging of the race.

This year’s chosen charity for the event is St Catherine’s Hospice.
