Walk, Jog or Run the iconic route from Capital to Coast. Join 2,500 others of all ages and experience for an unforgettable challenge over the Bank Holiday weekend. It will be rewarding, fun, and absolutely achievable with your resolve and determination!

A semi-urban stretch is followed by the picturesque views from the North Downs and then on through the Surrey & Sussex countryside. With the final push up the South Downs, you can feel the sea air with fantastic views of the Brighton coast and the finish line ahead.
