RAW running is a step back to the basics: running in the raw, if you like!  Our runs are on the tracks and trails of the South Downs and south coast and offer an open, friendly welcome to runners of all abilities. That’s not to say that you won’t be challenged by the routes we have selected…

NEXT EVENT is the Winter Night Run 5km & 10km on the Cowdray Estate, 5pm Saturday 9th December 2023.  Bring the kids as it’s also Christmas at Cowdray!

Our Angmering Bluebell Trail Run is on Sunday 5th May 2024 and the Dawn on the Downs at ‘Cowdown’ on the Highden Estate, Washington is on Sunday 7th July 2024. Both runs offer 10km and 10 mile options, the DotD also has a 5km option.

Our local charity events, are the Grand National 10km Trail Run at Findon on Sunday 14th April 2024 with all proceeds going to Findon Swimming Pool at St Johns Primary School in the village.  We’ve also got the popular Romero Run at Goring-by-Sea which returns in the spring on Sunday 21st April 2024 at Oscar Romero School – a fast flat 5km and 10km run on the coast.

As if that’s not enough, we’re proud to be partnering with the Cowdray Estate for a new ‘Run The Seasons’ series of trail runs during autumn, winter, spring & summer. 

Who are we? Well you’ve probably guessed we sprouted from the Raw Energy Pursuits team who are the organisers of the sell-out Bluebell Trail Run at Angmering and the Firle Half Marathon of old!
