We are thrilled to announce that Westerlands Farm in Graffham is now home to several of our South Downs runs. Nestled in the very heart of the South Downs National Park, this idyllic farm is a runner's paradise, with trails in every direction, amidst the breath taking South Downs scenery.

Your run begins and concludes at the charming Horsebox Café, where you can treat yourself to a post-run indulgence. Savour the richness of freshly ground coffee from Café du Monde, delight in decadent hot chocolate or explore the world of speciality teas from Teapigs. And, of course, don't forget to refuel your run with a delicious selection of cakes, refreshing ice cream, and more.

She Runs Outdoors runs are social and supportive - we are there to enjoy the views, chat, share tips and have a good time. Please expect stops for taking photos, to re-group and to admire the views while having lots of fun.

Our runs are chilled and not competitive. We encourage you to relax and not stress about your pace. We support each other along the way, meet new people and enjoy the views.

Roughly speaking, if you are fit enough to run and comfortable running 10-11 min miles / 6:15-7 min km on the flat, you will be fine. If you are a faster runner, take it easy and make new friends.

No racing, no pressure, just supportive run leaders and like-minded women, making the runs accessible to runners who are comfortable with the distance of each individual run.

The following items are COMPULSORY:

• Trail shoes

• Water + snacks/gels for our time on the trails. 

• A waterproof jacket.

• A running pack to carry the above.

Your run leader

Rachel Murphy

Your run will be guided by Rachel Murphy; Rachel is an experienced trail runner and qualified trail and ultra-running coach, and a Salomon Running Ambassador. Rachel and her team will support you throughout the run and will be able to give you first-aid treatment if you need it.
