Setting off from Eastbourne, you’ll head through Seven Sisters Country Park and along the National Trail of the South Downs Way whilst enjoying the views from the chalky cliffs at Beachy Head. 

Reaching halfway point at seaside town Brighton, you will experience a beautiful sunset and sunrise before following the river into historic Arundel where you’ll receive a warm welcome at the finish line after an amazing 100km. Half and quarter route options are also available.

The route will be split into four stages with rest stops between each and you’ll be supported throughout the day and the night.
