Participants wanted for 8k Undercliff Women’s Run and Family Walk in aid of Rise

A CHARITY which looks after domestic abuse victims is appealing for people to take part in a fundraising run and walk from Saltdean to Brighton and back.

The annual 8k Undercliff Women’s Run and Family Walk on Sunday October 7 are the main fundraisers for Rise, a Sussex refuge and domestic abuse charity.

Participants can look forward to a scenic run by the seashore alongside the famous chalk cliffs.

Runners can enter individually or as a four member relay team, each running 2km.

Registered runners have also been invited by FitBitch Running Club to take part in free Wednesday training sessions to prepare for the challenge.

Hove sports therapists, Studio 57 Clinic, are offering prizes and discounts for runners.

The route will follow the seashore for the first four kilometres and then wind back along the cliff top for breathtaking views of the Channel.

The walk is open to everyone – you can even bring your dog!

Rise spokesperson Naomi Bos said: “As well as refuge accommodation, Rise offers crisis appointments, helpline, counselling, housing, legal and financial advice, solicitor appointments, support groups, play therapy and one-to-one support. Most of these services are free but it costs over £3,000 every day to keep these vital, life saving services available for local families.” To enter the run visit
