Together with South Downs National Park and Brighton & Hove City Council, we are working to create a sustainable an 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 runners sustainable medals and T shirts, as well as operating a vigorous on-site ‘leave no trace’ policy.

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


We are working with Stanmer Park Estate to offer all finishers wooden medals made from trees that will be felled within the park.

These trees will be felled as part of the park’s regular maintenance, meaning we will be helping to reuse this wood and create something truly beautiful that you will treasure forever.
