The Heart of Sussex walk takes place on Sunday along the South Downs for the British Heart Foundation.

A 21 mile walk starts at Clayton Windmills, a 15 mile walk starts from the Swan Pub in Falmer, an 8 mile walk starts from Southease and a 5 mile Family Walk starts from Firle Beacon.

All the Walks will finish at the Alfriston War Memorial Hall next to the Parish Church.

Start times are:

Clayton (21 miles) 8.00am – 9.00am

Falmer (15 miles) 8.30am – 9.30am

Southease (8 miles) 9.30.00am – 11.30am

Firle (5 miles) 11.00am – 1.00pm

NB All those walking the full 21 miles must pass through Southease by 2pm in order to reach Alfriston. Lifts are available from the finish to starting points.

The BHF said: “This event is free to enter and we ask that you raise as much as possible through sponsorship. You can also make a donation as part of your online entry.

“Come and join this fantastic FREE day out suitable for all walkers. Whether you are a family or group of friends looking for a fun day out or a walking enthusiast looking for a challenge, be sure to get involved. Have fun, get fit and save lives with the BHF.

“All the walks have different start points. We hope that you will enjoy the challenge and variety of the full 21 mile walk, but you may feel happier attempting one of the shorter walks.

Many people take their dogs along the routes. Pictured is Freddie the Jack Russell, from Plumpton Green, wearing last year’s medal and ready to go on Sunday.
