Focus 10K, 5K and Mini Mile

A run for everyone! Sunday 22 May 2022

Everything you need to know for race day

Follow this link for all information about the Focus 10K on Sunday including timings, race village entertainment and bag drop info. 

The Focus 10K is Chailey Heritage Foundation’s most important fundraising event of the year, and this year it is back at an exciting and exclusive new venue near Newick, East Sussex.

Join us on race day and raise money – every penny raised is for the children and young people with complex neurodisabilities in our care.   

Taking place on Sunday 22 May at Vuggles Farm on the stunning Sutton Hall Estate, you can run a 10K, 5K, or a kids Mini Mile, on this beautiful private estate which has never been available to runners before.  This unique off-road 5K course takes you on a trail run alongside a river, and through stunning woodland, with only a couple of gentle hills to keep you on your toes!  

Whether you are a seasoned runner looking to challenge yourself on a new course, new to running and need a target to train for, or you already run 5K but would like to try a different terrain or up your distance to 10K, the Focus 10K truly has a run for everyone. We even have a Mini Mile for the kids. You could push yourself to go faster or take your time and enjoy the stunning scenery.
