Flex on the beach
Get fit in the sunshine at the brand new Flex on the Beach Fitness Trail in Bognor Regis, a unique landmark to really put Bognor Regis on the map. The 5km trail is made up of exercise stations along a series of circuits and the seafront. The trail runs from West Park in the west and along the seafront to Gloucester Road, with the option to de-tour to Hotham Park, before returning to the promenade and along to Longbrook Park. These circuits are designed to give the opportunity for fun exercise over a small area, a more strenuous workout by linking the circuits together, or the option of just walking the trail while taking in the sea air and sea views.
Located not far from the town centre, Hotham Park is where, Sir Richard Hotham, the creator of Bognor (later Regis), built his house in 1792. The house (not now open to the public) is surrounded by gardens and specimen trees from around the world and has just undergone an extensive regeneration following a 2.2 million pound Lottery Grant. The grounds are open to the public all year round and include a brand new Boating Lake, Mediterranean and Tropical Gardens, children's play area, miniature railway (with wheelchair access), putting green and crazy golf. It's a delightful place to while away the day at little or no cost!
Free admission with just a small charge for use of the concessionary facilities.
Pack a picnic and relax in lovely, peaceful surroundings away from the real world!

The Bognor Birdman event first started on the South coast of Britain in Selsey in 1971, where a prize was given for anyone who could fly the grand distance of 50 yards. Nobody managed it! After a few years the event started to attract quite a crowd and in 1978 the term Bognor Birdman was coined when the event moved to its present location in Bognor Regis. Why Bognor Regis is open to debate - perhaps it was some forward thinking person at the local council - perhaps it's because the sea has a strong incoming tide to help bring people back to the beach, perhaps it is because one of the original competitors came from Bognor, it certainly isn't because it is an easy place to get to. Anyway, the event has evolved and gets ever more popular. Every year a collection of brave daring men and women dress up in bizarre outfits and become Bognor Birdmen. They compete against one another by trying to fly through the air the furthest. Some people would say that they are just a bunch of adventurous nutters who jump off the end of a pier and end up getting cold and wet when they land in the sea. Either way, it's a fun event which benefits a number of good causes.
