Wakehurst Willow 8k by Moray Carey

The 200+ hectares of ornamental gardens, woodlands and nature reserve at Wakehurst Place, Ardingly, provide the spectacular setting for the Wakehurst Willow, an 8k race organised by Haywards Heath Harriers!

The race is officially described as a “challenging two-loop 8km long course on tarmac, woodchip and rocky earth paths winds its way around the perimeter of the botanical gardens, under massive redwoods, stunning lakes and past the world-famous Millennium Seedbank.”

There are certainly precipitous descents and ascents around the meandering, colourful course!

It takes place at 7:15pm on Wednesday 13th July 2022, one week after the RPAC Summer Evening 10k. Onsite facilities include plentiful free parking, toilets in several locations and refreshments.

As at 1600 today there are only 13 places left of the 400 race limit so, to if you want to secure one of the last places you will need to act quickly!
