The Challenge

The challenge starts in Eastbourne continuing up the infamous Beachy Head, on through the Seven Sisters Country Park and along the South Downs Way. You’ll see stunning views of the sea on the way to Brighton. 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 or the 50km which takes in half of the stunning route, or the 25km distance from Eastbourne to Alfriston.
