South Coast Challenge

Whether you’re a walker and new to challenge events, an experienced trekker, a marathon enthusiast upping the distance, or a seasoned ultra runner– there’s an Ultra Challenge for you! Walk, jog or run, as an individual or a team.

The South Coast Challenge is fun, safe, and rewarding with full support all the way, enabling you to push yourself further in stunning coastal scenery.

The South Downs National Park is a superb backdrop for 2,000 adventurers to take on a real challenge. Starting in Eastbourne, up Beachy Head and the magnificent Seven Sisters, and along the South Downs Way, with stunning views over the sea, to a Brighton half-way. Devil’s Dyke and a few ups and downs lie ahead before historic Arundel comes into view after an amazing 100 km journey.

You’ll get full support and hospitality all the way. With half and quarter distance options available, there’s a South Coast Challenge for everyone!
