The South Coast Challenge

100km & Half or 1/4 Options

This new Challenge takes on some of England's finest scenery. Eastbourne start, up the infamous Beachy Head, over chalk cliffs through the Seven Sisters Country Park and along the South Downs Way. A Brighton midpoint, Devils Dyke, amazing views, sunset & sunrise all lie ahead before the Cathedral spire of historic Arundel comes into view and a welcome finish line after an amazing 100km.
