The Out Of The Blue Battle 5k

The Out Of The Blue 10k & 5k returns after another successful year in 2016. The race offers the rare opportunity to run in the unique setting of Ashburnham Place, near Battle. The multi-terrain route will take in some of the 220 acre grounds which are rich in wildlife. Part of the grounds have been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest because of it’s valuable flora and fauna. Out Of The Blue is a fund raising body established in memory of Will Beckett who took his own life at Beachy Head in January 2013, at the age of 42. The tragedy came as an incredible shock for his family and friends – it simply came ‘Out Of The Blue’. The event aims to raise funds for three charities which helped Will’s family and friends in the immediate aftermath of his death. The charities are Winston’s Wish, Dragonflies and The Beachy Head Chaplaincy Team. Out of the Blue raises money to support these charities so that they can continue to help others.
