South Coast Challenge

This ultra challenge takes on some of England's finest scenery.

Starting in Eastbourne early on the Saturday morning, you'll walk the coastal path up the infamous Beachy Head, through Seven Sisters Country Park and along the South Downs Way. Brighton mid-point, Devils Dyke, stunning views, ups & downs, sunset & sunrise all lie ahead on this 24-hour challenge before the Cathedral spire of historic Arundel comes into view and the welcome finish line beyond.

The undulating coastal path will be challenging whether you're opting for the 100km, 50km or 25km but is incredibly rewarding.

Most of the 2,000 challengers will be walking, some will jog parts, and quite a few will run the full 100km. However you take it on - you'll be fully supported all the way by our team and rewarded with an amazing sense of achievement.

Push yourself further in 2017 and help us support a wide range of children, including those with disabilities, children who have been sexually exploited, young carers and young people in care.
