London to Brighton challenge 2017 - Ultra challenge

Event Overview

Walk, run or jog!

One of the UK’s great endurance events! Most will walk it, many will jog parts and some will run the full 100km (62 miles). All 3,000 participants will have a special reason to take on the challenge, and whatever yours is; it will be a unique test of stamina and determination. This is a tough ultra which makes your fundraising targets more than achievable!

It starts in Richmond, West London on Saturday morning.

There are 100km (62 miles) of paths, trails and expert support alongside some highs and lows to get to the Brighton finish line where an overwhelming sense of elation awaits. Your journey only finishes when you've had time to reflect on your amazing achievement and how your challenge also helped others. There's only one real London to Brighton challenge. Join us! We will fully support you all the way and it might be the most rewarding May Bank Holiday weekend you've had in years.
