January Is The Perfect Time To Consider The Focus 10k – A Run For Everyone!

Chailey Heritage Foundation’s most important fundraising event of the year is back on the 14th May 2023!

Whether you are new to running, an experienced club runner or a young person just wanting to have fun and get involved, with 10k, 5k, Mini Mile and Virtual events, there truly is a run for everyone.

Back for its second year at the wonderful Sutton Hall Estate nestled in the beautiful countryside between Newick and Barcombe, we got great feedback about the new course from runners in 2022.

The off-road 5k race travels through established paths that pass by numerous tree plantations, along the River Ouse, through beautiful woodland, and across open fields. The race has a few little hills, with a total elevation of under 40 metres. The 10k participants will benefit from the crowd support when they loop around to begin their second lap because the start and finish are located in the race village.

Money raised through the Focus 10K will be going towards running our fantastic on-site therapy farm – Patchwork Farm. The farm provides unique learning experiences for all young people at Chailey Heritage Foundation. The farm residents include pigs, pygmy goats, chickens, geese, tortoises, sheep, donkeys, guinea pigs, ducks and a Shetland pony. The farm offers a calming, outside space where young people can enjoy spending time with the animals as well as providing benefits such as confidence building and developing language and communication skills.

We are hugely grateful for the support of our headline sponsors, Focus Group, who are making the event possible for an amazing 6th year. Their support means that every penny raised by participants at the Focus 10k goes directly towards riding for the young people at Chailey.

The inspirational children and young people at Chailey Heritage Foundation overcome incredible challenges every day of their lives and will be joining in with our Virtual Focus 10k event. We hope to see you there!
