Walking and running on campus

Social running on campus

During term time, students can run socially twice a week with Active US, the sessions cater for beginner runners and those who have more experience. Sessions are led by our Student Running Activator, starting at the Sport Centre and following routes around campus and the Sussex Downs, according to the needs of the group. Find out more via the Active US Facebook page

You can also join us for our weekly Runch (Run at Lunch). These sessions are open to staff and students and are low key, social and focused on those that want to share their lunchtime jog: no intervals, hill training or minute per mile pacing, this is a relaxed run which lasts no more than 30-40 minutes and is open to all. We run:

  • Thursdays 12.10pm-12.50pm

Meet at the Sport Centre reception.

Running sessions are open to all on campus. If you're a not a member of Sussexsport but would like to use the shower facilities, a £1.60 guest fee will be charged. with any queries.
