West Sussex Fun Run League
For new runners this is the best place to start if you have never raced or a little nervous. This league was set up to get people into running in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Ages and standard are at both ends of the scale, so an excellent place to start. The A80 Hove Park 5k is part of this series.
Even though called West Sussex Fun Run League several are in East Sussex. Entry in advance is just £3 and if entering on the day it varies. Some races are on road and some off. It is best on a calendar year.

Sussex Grand Prix League
This is a league which piggy backs most Sussex road running events and uses results to create age graded categories in 5 year steps i.e. 40-44. Race fields are normally a lot larger with once again a huge mix of standards and ages.
The league is based on races in current year. This is a great way of challenging yourself against runners in your age category. Cost is down to the race organiser and varies considerably.
The races are held in a variety of locations across the County with some stunning courses and very good cake (sometimes even beer) at the finish.
The first runner home gets 500 points and yes first woman would also get 500 points and then on downwards. You only need to do 6 events and any above this means your best 6 are calculated. This means that you can be in contention (and there are a lot of prizes and categories, both team and individual) by running six 10k races. Arena 80’s Hove Prom race is included in this series. Club vests must be worn.
For the list of SGP races:
This is held every Saturday morning at 9am in Hove Park and Preston Park and in numerous venues around the whole country. You run over 5km and your time and position is recorded, with an update e-mail being sent to you post-race. Standards and ages are once age at either end of the scale but with this event you are given an age grade as well which is a good way of challenging yourself each week.
The run is absolutely free so all you need to do is register online as Arena 80 AC, print out your bar code which is used after you cross the line and turn up whenever you want. So no excuses not to race as you train hard so put a stake in the ground and watch yourself progress.
You don’t need a vest but always good to promote the club.
We now have our own club parkrun competition consisting of 6 events across the different parkruns, for more details: Arena 80 parkrun series
