THE ROUTE

The marathon route for the 2022 event was a huge success – this will be subject to some change in 2023 but we will be sure to maintain the challenge of the hill climbs.

SUPPORTING OUR TRAILS

Together with South Downs National Park and Brighton & Hove City Council, we are working to creating a sustainable event as possible and to give something back to the land we will pass through.

£1 from every entry for this event will go to National Trails to help maintain The South Downs and the trails that wind through them. 

We will also be working to offer participants sustainable medals, as well as operating a vigorous on-site ‘leave no trace’ policy. 

We will also committed to supporting National Trails in their quest to get more people out running and walking safely in the South Downs, finding the confidence to run off-road and plan their own routes.
