The Challenge

Take on some of England's finest scenery as a Walk, Jog, or a Run! An Eastbourne start, up infamous 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. Then travel over Devils Dyke, experiencing stunning views, ups and downs, before the Cathedral spire of historic Arundel comes into view.

Take on the 100km challenge from Eastbourne to Arundel, the 50km which takes in half of the stunning route, or the 25km distance from Eastbourne to Alfriston. Choose your challenge, your way!

Your 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 and a medal to commemorate your achievement.

As Alzheimer's Society are an official partner on this event, you get a 50% discount on the ‘Full Sponsorship’ registration fee when signing up to support us.
