Welcome to the Chailey Heritage Foundation Focus 10K at Borde Hill Garden

Update 15.05.2020

In light of the current circumstances and government guidance the Focus 10k has not been rescheduled to take place later this year. 

We have emailed all ticket holders outlining their options. If you have not received an email please contact us.

We would like to invite our supporters to join us virtually on the 31st May for a running challenge of 5k, 10k, or a Mini Mile for any younger runners (accompanied by a responsible adult of course).

We are also extremely pleased to announce that any funds that you raise will be generously matched pound for pound by our kind sponsors, Focus Group. To get involved, we therefore would love you to set up your own Just Giving page to start your fundraising.

For full details please visit Focus 10k - Virtual Edition

Now more than ever, any funds you raise will make such a difference in supporting young people with complex disabilities at Chailey Heritage Foundation. 





The Focus 10K course takes in some of the beautiful park and woodland of the Borde Hill estate, challenge yourself to run up the hills or take it easy and enjoy the scenery!  Complete two 5km laps before collecting your medal and race goodies at the finish.


Just 1 lap of our beautiful scenic course is all that stands between you and 5k glory!

Mini Mile

Taking place directly before the main races, the Mini Mile gives children the chance to run on a specially shortened route. Children under 8 years old must be accompanied by an adult.
