We Run! Hassocks is a totally free community running group founded in 2013 and promoting running for everyone in the local Hassocks area.
Our Facebook group provides a forum for advice, ideas and planning runs together and just chatting about anything to do with running. Click on the We Run! image on the right of this page to join our group!
The group now has nearly 500 members. The youngest is 9 and the oldest is "somewhere over 60!". There is always expert advice on hand from the team of 6 UK Athletics registered run leaders.
Each spring we organise a charity event in which we run between 1 and 26.2 miles up and down Hassocks Hight Street. In 2014 the Hassocks Sport Relief Marathon raised over £700 for Sport Relief. In 2015 we raised over £500 for St Peter and St James Hospice. The 2016 event raised another £600 for the hospice and last year's event raised over £500 to help "Keep Perl's Parents By Her Side". This year we raised over £500 Sport Relief once again.
For the last eight years we've gathered at 8am on Boxing Day to run from Jack and Jill windmills to Ditchling Beacon and back. The first year there were 5 of us and 2 dogs, this has now built to the crowds you can see in the pictures below.
