South Coast Challenge 2017

Sign up ›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 100k and an amazing personal journey.

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.

Push yourself in 2017 - get in shape - join us for a real challenge and an unforgettable bank holiday weekend.

There are various distances to choose from:

  • Full 100k challenge from Eastbourne to Arundel - as a continuous event starting Saturday morning

  • Second half 50k challenge – from Hove to Arundel – taking place Saturday 26 August
  • First quarter challenge (23k) – from Easbourne to Alfriston – setting off Saturday morning

Your determination and stamina will be tested but there’s no doubt you’ll cross the finish line feeling great in the knowledge that you’re helping children and young people with cancer, and their families.
