Truleigh Hill Pace Run - 04/11/2010

Devil's Dyke

I found myself in Sussex again with an hour or so to spare so did the next little bit of the South Downs Way. I've already run the section from Eastbourne to Devil's Dyke, so went on west from Devil's Dyke as far as the next significant rise, Truleigh Hill.

This was a straightforward route starting with a series of gentle grassy switchbacks over Fulking Hill, Perching Hill, Edburton Hill and then a steady pull up to Truleigh Hill Barn. I turned around here and headed back, maintaining pretty much 10 minute mile pace throughout despite a nature stop and taking the pics here.

Nice steady progress today; felt pretty good: 4.5 miles, 590' of ascent in 0:46:09.
