London 2 Brighton Challenge

The London 2 Brighton Challenge is held on 26-27 May 2018 and is a real test of stamina and determination - this 100km challenge is suitable for all levels of trekkers and is an epic endurance walk or an amazing ultra run.

The challenge begins with crowds of participant and supporters enjoying the tented village facilities where the music is loud, the warm ups hot, and excitement levels are high.

Groups set off eagerly in batches of 100 along the river path with runners striding out to benefit from a quiet course and a fast time. The 100km of paths, trails, and roads - two thirds of it offroad - lead to the Brighton race course finish with some great food, rest stops and support to keep you happily progressing along the way. You’ll encounter some fantastic scenery, make new friends and discover resolve and spirit you didn’t know you had, all the while fundraising for the dogs and cats in our care.
