Competition Area: Ambersham Common is one of the best-remaining sub-Atlantic heathlands in West Sussex. With predominantly fast heathland mixed with runnable forest and areas of fine detail contouring it lends itself perfectly for middle distance racing. The westernmost part of the area is criss-crossed with a path network through woodland and contrasts with the open heath which is lightly contoured and with strong water features.
