About

The Thorney Island Run is the ultimate early-season run.  This amazing trail route around Thorney Island and surrounding harbour-side paths will take in the most stunning views of Chichester Harbour (an area of outstanding natural beauty) and spectacular wildlife.


The route's remoteness and constant coastal vistas make it one of the south's best-kept secret trails. This well-crafted off-road route will guide you around the perimeter of the former airbase at Thorney island and an additional loop around the top of the harbour, with views over to the Witterings, Prinstead bay and the surrounding Southdown's.

The flat nature of the course makes for a perfect early-season run. With two route distances (15k, Half Marathon) to choose from, there is a distance to cater for all abilities. The event is timed and will have water station(s) on route to keep you hydrated.

Children are welcome to take part and have a significantly discounted price but must run with a paying adult.

As you cross the finishing line you will receive a high-quality medal and drink. Refreshment will also be available.
