Westhampnett Lake located just outside the historic city of Chichester, West Sussex was the venue for the first ever #subikerun event staged in September 2014.
Set close to the foot of the South Downs Way, Westhampnett Lake proved and excellent venue to host and test out our event format. A 40-acre fresh water lake with excellent facilities including a huge lakeside decking and spectator area. Visitors to the event were welcomed with a BBQ, cafe and bar, DJ and Surfdome pop-up shop.
For the participants, a tough and challenging event was presented to them. Their challenge commence with a simple 3K SUP course on the lake made tricky with quite a strong wind blowing across the lake. From the lake, our participants left the lake and ran to the bike transition zone heading north to take on an exciting 30K MTB course with three very different and challenging ascents. The event concluded with a gentle 5K trail run that looped the participants across trails around the Rolls-Royce Motor factory.
