It's Your Challenge

... Your Way!

As an Individual or Team

..Walk, Jog, or Run it

31 AUG/1 SEPT 

Whether you're a keen walker and new to endurance events, or even a seasoned marathon runner looking to up the distance, your Challenge will be unforgettable, with full support & great hospitality all the way. 

A seaside start on Saturday morning, you'll Walk, Jog, or Run 100km along the coastal path, over the South Downs Way through day & night (for some) on this 24+ hour challenge all the way to Arundel. Or perhaps take on either 'Half' ~50km Challenge and start or finish at Brighton - alternatively, there's a 23km Quarter option from Eastbourne over the famous Seven Sisters. The full route goes through stunning scenery, with a Brighton half way point,  and the undulating path will test you - but will be incredibly rewarding.

With some training and determination you'll be amazed at what you can achieve!
