Take on some of England’s finest scenery as you take on 100km, 50km or 25km in the South Coast Challenge – walk, jog, or run! An Eastbourne start, up Beachy Head, over the magnificent Seven Sisters, and along the famous South Downs Way National Trail, with stunning views over the sea to a Brighton mid-point. Devil’s Dyke, welcome rest stops, and a few ups and downs, all lie ahead before historic Arundel comes into view after an amazing 100km journey. There are also 50km half challenge, and 25km quarter challenge options, so make it your challenge, your way!
Entry includes free food and drink at regular rest stops, plus support including medics, marshals and massage. As you cross the finish line, you’ll get a glass of fizz, t-shirt, and a medal to commemorate your achievement.
