Event Overview

**£20 off registration fees in March - use discount code MARCH20 when signing up. Your discount will be applied once the form has been signed.**

Back for 2017 – this challenge takes on some of England's finest scenery as a walk, jog or run. An Eastbourne start, up the infamous Beachy Head, through the Seven Sisters Country Park and along the South Downs Way.

A Brighton midpoint, Devils Dyke, stunning views, sunset and sunrise all lie ahead before the cathedral spire of historic Arundel comes into view and a welcome finish line after 100km and an amazing personal journey. 

The route goes through stunning scenery and the undulating path will test you – but will be incredibly rewarding. There are covered rest stops every 12.5km, and the Ultra Challenge team on hand to support you – with plenty of free food and drink to keep energy levels up.

As you cross the finish line we, along with spectators and the Ultra Challenge team, will be there to celebrate your achievement, award your medal and hand you a well-deserved glass of bubbly.

With some training and determination you'll be amazed at what you can achieve.

Most of the 2,000 challengers will be walking at their own pace, many will jog parts, and some will run the whole course. However you take it on, you'll be supported through day and night and rewarded with an overwhelming sense of achievement. Get in shape – join team CP for a real challenge and an unforgettable Bank Holiday weekend!
